I wrote a very playable version of break out in Smart Basic that I will eventually make in to a video showing how to write a video game in pure smart basic:

It has skill levels and progressively gets harder

Here is the game I wrote as an excercise in pure smart basic- It is a fully functional version of Breakout that uses the joystick. You can select the number of paddles (1 or 2) and the skill leve. The higher the level the smaller the backdrop. It uses some tricks to create and track the bricks on the screen. Let me know what you think - I know it can be improved.

Thanks for sharing! My ADAM is out of commission at the moment due to a keyboard problem but I will definitely give this a try when I'm back in working order. Looking forward to the video too!

I tried to run the game using the Virtual Adam emulator, and it drops back to the prompt within a couple of seconds of the opening music... Need to try it on the real thing.
