I'm sure someone said The Witch's Cauldron was a BASIC game? Haven't checked. Seems to be quite highly rated.
The tap contents don't look very BASICy:

Data (6913 Bytes)
Data (40886 Bytes)

Re: I built a game in BASIC

Note: you can set the paper colour outside of any print statements, just by writing PAPER 0. You'd probably want to change the border colour too, and you'll obviously need to change the message colours.

Two Days to the Race.
A new three part text adventure by Davide Bucci, with great atmosphere and an unusual setting.

This one was bugging me. It's not the first time in 8bit history, but that inlay sexes the game up a little bit...
