BASIC Tenliners 2016 - The Results

 

The contest was and still is very entertaining. We hope many people enjoy these games, all of which programmed in only 10 lines of BASIC code. The stunning number of 89 games in four categories shows us that this somewhat dated BASIC isn't dead. You - the programmers of the games - and You - the gamer - and You - the interested dear reader have brought new life in this tiny but shiny programming language from the last century.

Prizes

 

I collected some prizes for the contest. A big Thank you for sponsoring goes to Marcin "Montezuma" Sochacki for the two USB Gamepads (good for Emulation) and the SIO2BT (connects your Atari with your Android device) and to Ingo "1NG" Boller for his Jim Slide Kits (a disk sleeve for cut and paste by yourself + Jim Slide poster) and his Jim Slide Box (Full Version of Jim Slide). I will send this prizes in one week (because I stay a few days abroad).
