    You have to wonder if Smileboom fell out of good graces with Nintendo after Smilebasic 3ds was hacked. Still, very glad to see a legit homebrew solution surface for the Switch, never though that would happen. Fuze even uses a BASIC dialect, which is good news for this community.

Express Yourself Second Year My account is over 2 years old Website Not worth buying a switch for (unlike SB would be), but if I had a switch I'd definitely get it. From what I've seen, it's a lot simpler than SB, and I doubt it has anything like SB's sprites or BG, so I don't think making games will be practical. Posted

Express Yourself Thankfully, FUZE Basic seems to not support labels, so that can finally die. If the Switch version is free, we could have a SmileBASIC killer. Also, just to test it out, I installed FUZE Basic on my Pi, and guess what's the first demo program. I'd still buy SmileBASIC Wii U if it came out tho Posted Edited by TheV360

    Calc and I explored the PC version a bit. It's… eehh.

Express Yourself Yeah, Fuze BASIC feels taped together, while SmileBASIC is more stable, especially when it comes to the example programs (half of them don't work). It also handles functions and sprites really weirdly. I really hope that, if they make a new SmileBASIC for the Switch, it will have better handling of arrays and colors.

    I would get a Switch for SmileBASIC Switch Edition if it had backwards compatibility. I'm not willing to wait for good games to come out or to make some at launch. What kind of programming language includes broken example programs? Even SiMPLE's (the world's suckest pl) example programs all worked right.

    I would be fine to have both if SmileBoom actually had a Switch version for SB, anyway. It might be silly, but I might look forward to it next year

    It's not designed to compete with SB FuzeBASIC is a learning tool (also they have a physical computer, which is kind of cool), while SB is designed for making games (and definitely not for learning how to program)
    Isn't Smileboom making a tiny physical computer?
    I don't think so, but that would be totally killer.

  • #132 ✎ 477 SquareFingers Fuze Basic has a physical computer. They even sell a version with red function keys, which really appeals to me - I was a fan of the BBC home computers. Posted

    They actually are: https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.itmedia.co.jp%2Fnews%2Farticles%2F1705%2F27%2Fnews029.html&edit-text=&act=url Surprised none of you has made a thread on this. It's a mini working replica of the MZ-80C vintage Japanese computer. It's called PasocomMini MZ - 80C and it runs a version of Smilebasic. Unfortunately it's limited edition and Japan only.

    That looks like something the guys at the vintage computer festival would love to get their hands on. (while they mostly show off actual vintage computers, there was a replica computer on the floor this year.) The other interesting thing is the smileBASIC emulator on PC, is this available to us yet?

    Thankfully, FUZE Basic seems to not support labels, so that can finally die. If the Switch version is free, we could have a SmileBASIC killer
    We don't need a SmileBASIC killer when SmileBASIC is already dead. ;) At least outside of Japan. Fuze to me already wins simply because support for it in my country will actually be a thing while SmileBASIC will not.

    Twitter's translate is bad so I don't know for sure but they might STILL be trying with Europe and overseas updates.
