DescriptionIn this entry to the second SmileBASIC Source one-screen program contest, one seed attempts to cross the sea with the aid of a wind spirit. The daitengu, feuding with that wind spirit for offering the help of the wind to anything but birds, sends legions of youkai birds to stop the seedling. The seed faces other dangers, too: fly too high, and the sun will burn it. Too low, and the waves will catch it.
You are that wind spirit. Carry the seed as far as you can!

Use the trigger buttons to call on a strong wind.
After failing and being washed away, use any face button to restart.
It's also nice to just relax and watch the waves.NotesIf you are running on an old 3DS and find that it runs too slowly, please try the following modifications:
- On the line beginning 1R=0WHILE, change D R,T-F/2:D R,T: to just D R,T-F/2- On the line beginning D:WHILE A, change the 8 in A<8 to a lower value to reduce the number of waves.
- On the line beginning ND(1+T/2e3) change 2e3 to 1e3
Additionally, if you find the visuals to be too dark, try omitting the region FOR I=1TO 399SPSET I,1SPCOLOR I,I/3<<24SPSCALE I,25,.1SPFS I,,I NEXTChangelog:
