BASIC 10-liners

What are "10-liners"?

Tenliners are small programs written in just 10 lines of BASIC programming language. This concept appeared in 2011 during the NOMAM convention in Lübeck, Germany, where a contest for small Atari games was conceived. Since then, every year more 8-bit systems have been included, and over 170 programs have been received from all the world, in different categories.

The rules are simple:

The categories are:

Official web pages for BASIC Tenliner Contest are: 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018.

Local ATR with Atari compilations are: 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018.
