LowRes NX

Program retro games in BASIC!

iOS, macOS, Windows

LowRes NX is a simulated retro game console, which can be programmed in the classic BASIC language. It has its own technical specifications, but it's very much inspired by actual 8-bit and 16-bit game consoles. It doesn't only look and sound retro, but actually works like classic hardware.

LowRes NX simulates graphics, sound and I/O chips and makes their hardware registers accessable in its memory map. Although most of the features are available via simple BASIC statements, it's possible to program video, audio and I/O directly by accessing the memory.

Imagine LowRes NX as a handheld game console with a d-pad, two action buttons and a little rubber keyboard below a slidable touchscreen.
