Can i write Master System games in BASIC?
Post Posted: Wed Oct 02, 2019 12:33 am
Hi. I'm experienced in BASIC, and after using some BASIC compilers (like BasiEgaXorz and Batari Basic), i'm trying to find another one, this time, for the Master System.
If you do know a BASIC compiler for the SMS, please tell me what it is and how to use it!

none that I know of at the moment... But to be honest, I dont see it being fast enough to be useful... You could always write your own but I mean, there is already a C compiler for the SMS so its not really necessary...

There was a version of BASIC created for the SC-3000 SEGA Home Computer but, it was made to run directly on the system and even if it can be booted on an SMS... theirs the tiny problem of not having a keyboard lol.
There are a few dead projects to create a standalone BASIC compiler for writing programs for the SMS via another computer similar to BasiEgaXorz but as far as I know none ever made it out.

Either way, languages like BasiEgaXorz or Second BASIC are not the best examples to follow when looking for something in the BASIC area as theyre very buggy and nearly broken for the platforms they run on...
