Old Skool Basic on Android
« on: February 01, 2011, 06:48:42 PM »
My new obsession is becoming tablets.  An Android' Flytouch 2 is my latest play toy.  I was looking around and found an implementation of Dartmouth Basic on Android!  It's at http://www.appbrain.com/app/basic/com.rfo.basic.

I just downloaded Nethack as well.  Oh, happy days.

Android is so much cooler (and more affordable) than the Apple alternative.

Not to mention you don't look like a pretentious jackass.
I am a negative, rude, prick.

Damn, looks like they have a version of Slashem for Android as well.... Might have to get one of these things sometime.

iPad is fun too.  I'm not about to settle in one camp or another.  Since the price of Amigas has climbed I've started playing with various tablets.  There's just something comforting about them.  Basic is the comfort food of the IT world, I'm looking forward to playing with it, maybe getting some old games running.

Not when you use a dialect such as FreeBasic and pull out full pointer based programming :lol:
