Some sounds would be cool. Doesn't need to be something complicated, just some beeps :)

OK, although I don't like play game with sounds. :D

I love beeps ;) Although a mute button like in the original LowRes Coder could make sense.

(PAUSE) could be used to toggle the sound effects off/on
Timo 2019-05-17 16:32
No, I mean the app should have this included, so the programmer doesn't have to care about it.

Yes, LOWRES NX itself can be modified to include a MUTE button, like original lowres had...
but having programmed sound control is technically possible, and if the program is already using the GAMEPAD option, using (PAUSE) to control the sounds is an easy option as most people don’t program the PAUSE button, and it’s an easy thing to add...
IF the program was using TOUCHSCREEN, it would be abit more difficult to add sound control, as you would have to make a button, and program it to respond to touch, then add the sound control to it.... abit more complicated with TOUCHSCREEN..
... BUT, rather easy to do with GAMEPAD..
... but I agree, MUTE built into NX itself would be very convenient....

The MUTE button should be available despite the control settings (GAMEPAD/TOUCHSCREEN/NEITHER)
While we’re are on the topic of adding built in buttons, how about adding a “MENU” button, with a ONMENU GOTO option in the code... this way, whether the programmer has used GAMEPAD or TOUCHSCREEN, offers a very convenient way to have and use a MENU option, which could simply offer “RESUME GAME / RESTART GAME” or get more complicated with lots of options on the game menu.... whatever the programmer wants to put on their MENU page, a MENU button available for either TOUCHSCREEN or GAMEPAD would be nice..
I think having a built in MENU button would encourage better programming by inticing programmers to want to add a menu, since the built in MENU button is already there, waiting to be used...

Actually the Pause button is thought exactly for this. Usually in games it makes sense, you pause the game and it shows a menu if available. It was never meant to be a third action button next to A and B.
I think for touchscreen programs it's not that important, because you usually program your own user interface.
I would add the mute function to the existing menu on iOS (the three dots).

Ah, makes sense...
