“Write a game in 10 lines of BASIC” is the slogan of the fourth BASIC tenliners development contest. In 2011 and 2013 the contest was an internal competiton of the retro computer meeting NOMAM in Lübeck / Germany, but a lot of contributions came from all around the world in 2014 and only one was produced live on the meeting. So if you are able to develop a BASIC program for one of the following systems, you can send in your contribution (other BASIC dialects are approved if you show your program on the original hardware live on the NOMAM meeting at 11.04.2015):


  • Atari 8-Bit
  • Commodore 64
  • Commodore 128
  • Amstrad CPC

Authorized BASIC dialects:

  • Atari BASIC (A8)
  • Turbo BASIC XL (A8)
  • Altirra BASIC (A8)
  • Commodore BASIC V2 (C64)
  • Simon’s BASIC (C64)
  • Commodore BASIC 7.0 (C128)
  • Locomotive BASIC 1.0 (Amstrad CPC)
