Hey all, Starfighter here. I just got an iPhone from my roomie’s mom and was digging through the App Store and found this. First day of really checking it out and doing some coding, and I love it! It reminds me of back in high school coding on the TI-83+ line only with a better language and hardware.
Thanks for the platform and to everyone for publishing games and experiments, I hope to become an active contributor myself :)
Also please move this to a proper location if it’s not already in one, thank you and apologies :)

BTW, i love your handler :)
Dont hesitate to ask any questions...
... also, any of my matrial may be remixed... thats when you take a program and modify it... just post it as "remix" ... its a fun way to learn the ins and outs of the programming language ;) usually its polite to ask first before you remix someones program, but i like to see the creative remixes, so feel free with mine if your so inclined :)

Hi - welcome! If you like TI basic style programs, there's currently a Drugwars clone posted. You can search the program archives to find it.
Also, I'll mention something (only because it took me so long to figure out) - you can click on anyone's user name to see all their uploads (but not their forum posts). Check out was8bit especially - he's a prolific uploader.

Your comment about the TI83 inspired me, so I ported the TI Basic commands over to LowRes so that we can have Drugwars:

Hey guys, thank you all for the warm welcome! I’d have replied sooner but renovation just started on my apartment and that’s just been...fun. I’ve got cell service now though so I’ll be able to check the forums anywhere I am.
@nathanielbabiak that’s awesome! I was thinking of porting a few of my favourite games. Pretty sure I can get back on omnimaga IRC for permissions :). The Verdante Forest would be great to have here.
@was8bit thank you for permission to remix your stuff. You’ve got some great stuff to learn from so bet I’ll be looking through your code at the very least; I’m eager to learn the trickery you do lol

Also, check out Timo,s stuff, as he created this wonderful app, and his code is always solid :)
