This is very impressive for a BASIC game.

Choice of language, redefinable keys, and the movement doesn't seem as typically sluggish as you'd expect given the number of enemies moving about on screen.

The graphics are pretty good too; interesting how the normal character set has been used to enable easy collision checking.
