i think we are allowed to put all the comments instead in a seperate readme.

Also, i got antoher question to pure basic: are we allowed to use tokens generated by http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/391/39138.html because they still work on every calc?
I guess it would be fine since inside the game itself there would still be no ASM code. I'M unsure if extra pics/vars can be used, though (you might only be able to use extra ASCII chars like #, $, etc)

I would like to enter, but have a few questions.

1. So if I made a BASIC program, I would not be competing against ASM/Hybrid programs?

2. This contest is for the TI-83+/84+, right?

3. Which would be closer to this contest's goal for TI-Basic games: an actual Nibbles variation, or a text-based RPG sort?
You should know, I am a Christian.

1. True. Pure BASIC programs are in a separate category than hybrid BASIC (xLIB, Celtic, XCOPY, DCSlibs, etc), Axe, FastRPL, Grammer and C, which competes directly against ASM.
2. Yep. No 84+CSE nor 83 (82 Stats.Fr) entry.
3. Nibbles. A text RPG would not only lack the replay value/addiction level required by the overall contest theme, but the fact it would be text-only (as in menus) would totally ruin your TI community reputation on ticalc.org.

I figured that'd be true.

Yeah the issue is that there are way too many of them on ticalc.org. Same goes for Guessing games, quadratic solvers and fake Windows clones
