This one bc2tijd.bas is for the PC. Someone removed the copyright (C) LDL '92.

Code: Select all

20 KEY OFF:SCREEN 0,0,0:WIDTH 80:GOTO 1010

Code: Select all

112 LOCATE V%,H%:RETURN

Code: Select all

250 BEEP:RETURN
260 RANDOMIZE TIMER:RV=RND:RETURN
270 FR=FRE(0):RETURN
Those non-standard commands mean it seems to be in Microsoft GWBasic, so it looks like you've got a (possibly unofficial?) DOS version, ported from the Spectrum one.

Thanks for all the feedback on this. The version I had was the same as the version that Alex posted. It looks like this was for Basicode 1 and the version on the JavaScript interpreter web site is for Basicode 2. The lines that look like they're for the PC are Basicode code.

I think it's safe to assume that there is no native Spectrum ZX version and you need a Spectrum Basicode interpreter to run it.

I think I might try translating this to English and porting it to MC-10. Is it a good game?

I don't know, because I haven't translated it. Be brave. Do us all a favour.

Still plunking away at it. Too bad it wasn't written in Friesian, it would be just that little bit easier...
