The BASIC code can not detect doping, so feel free to use whatever trick you think is useful to make Aznar to bright again...

The scroll technique was learned and tested in a previous game of my own, Brain 8 (which had no repercusion); the magic word for scrolling is LPRINT.

And yes, since each frame lasts 200-300 milisecs, the option is the cadence; I couldn´t find a way to manage fast key detection, having many things to manage in each loop (display, Aznar, bars, scroll, and logical operations); but thanks to PEEK 23560, the cadence can work quite accurely and makes the game playable (this was my main concern, if players would find this solution playable).

Did the slowness of BASIC force you to choose a finely tuned cadence, rather than rapid button mashing? If yes, then the limitations of BASIC have actually benefited the game.
I have played it in my phone, with the touch screen is really hard to run!

This user achieved 8.88 seconds in 100m sprint, check how he did it using the phone:



I tested it in my phone using Spectaculator and I can pass all events and rounds, it is true that it is a bit different than playing with a keyboard, but it is playable as well.

I guess we will have to implant two categories for world records, keyboard category, and phone category.

You have, to my knowledge, the 100m WR in "keyboard category", 9.14s.

The WR in "phone category" belongs to JQL (javiventisca on tweeter), 8.88s.

Let´s see what goes on.

Funny game.. :lol:

Seem to be crap at some events and OK at others. Got a bit better after realising you don't need to pound the keyboard.

At least Sr Aznar seems to be enjoying himself...
