The BASIC 10Liners competition is entering its seventh round - and the programmers are not running out of ideas. In 2017, MRC member NYYRIKKI finished with a second place among 64 participants. In the years before, we saw 246 (!) 10-line contributions. Every one a little work of art for themselves. And best of all, you can play with this art. But you can do much more with it: you can analyze it, admire the program structures and learn from it. So many possible and impossible game ideas were realized. How many possible and impossible realizations will the future bring? You have it in your own hands! Program in BASIC! A program in 10 lines is a manageable project and a stunning and satisfying product will emerge.

​Legal systems are all 8-bit computer systems and all line orientated BASIC dialects are allowed, with a restriction in the category "PUR-80".

The competition is constantly evolving. Again this year, there are some small rule changes, but without changing the spirit of the competition. There are again the three well-known categories, which is joined - by popular demand - by another category in which machine code is allowed.

  • Category "PUR-80": Program a game in 10 lines (max 80 characters per logical line, abbreviations are allowed).
    Attention: In this category only built-in BASIC variants are allowed
  • Category "PUR-120": Program a game in 10 lines (max 120 characters per logical line, abbreviations are allowed)
  • Category "EXTREME-256": Program a game in 10 lines (max 256 characters per logical line, abbreviations are allowed)
