8-Bit Show & Tell: 10x Faster Than C64 BASIC? Hare Basic


Hare Basic is a fast, integer-only BASIC interpreter with a limited instruction set, designed for the Commodore 64 and VIC-20 by Aleksi Eeben. Released for free download in May 2024, it includes an excellent handbook and a distribution disk packed with impressive example programs. Robin had a blast creating a game prototype with Hare Basic, finding it surprisingly fast and user-friendly.

Join Robin as he shares his insights into the language, walks through the code of some example programs, and showcases the small game he developed.
