Excellent, thank you @miguetelo . I have tried Boriel BASIC in the past, but struggled with the poor documentation. DId you find any decent documentation for Boriel?

For example I visit:

https://zxbasic.readthedocs.io/en/latest/screen/

At the bottom of the page there is:

See also
CSRLIN
POS
AT

All link to dead pages. The same with ATTR

https://zxbasic.readthedocs.io/en/lates ... er/attr.md

Sorry to moan. I do appreciate the work that has gone into it, Its just that documentation does not seem to have improved since I last tried it.

Edit - I have raised a GitHub ticket, offering to type up any documentation in MarkDown.

For the English speakers, this is the readme:

REVERSE PONG
Miguetelo 2020

The tables have turned, your life as a racket hitting balls ended abruptly and in your cycle of reincarnations you have been reborn as a ball. How ironic. You will try your own medicine.
This time you must control the Pong ball, you must collect 6 coins in each level to be able to go to the next one. It will get complicated, so put your nerves to soak.
Avoid skewers and mines. Take advantage of the rackets to bounce around the screen.
Luck!

Controls:
Q - up
Down

Reverse Pong in a Basic game compiled with Boriel's ZXBasic.
Programmed in LCD Edge.
Thanks to AsteriodeZX for his basic course and awakening the bug to dust off my little knowledge of Basic.

Note: I started Reverse Pong a year ago. At first I tried to do it in AGD but I did not like the results, so it has been in the fridge until now, taking advantage of these weeks of quarantine I have reprogrammed it in Basic compiled. !I hope you like it

Thank you for the translation!!
It is the first time that i use Boriel and BorIDE.
I tried to keep it simple as in ZX Spectrum Basic but i had problems with
randomize and other commands, so i tried to do it in other ways.
The documentation (to me) is a bit confusing.
Thanks!

Would you consider publishing the source code? Thanks!

Nice idea! Thanks.

Haven't found any bugs yet. Is it possible to get in an impossible position? Where the bats are always at the bottom so you can never collect what's at the top?

Hi R-Tape.
No. I designed it so that the case would not occur. But ...
in some levels, the last coin must be collected in kamikaze mode. Without the safety of the bats.

I'm very much enjoying it. I' not very good at these sorts of games, but I celebrated with another glass of wine when I reached level two!

Thanks a lot for this.
