To sum it all up.. "Holy freakinÂ’ crap!!" This program is one of the finest works in BASIC that I have seen in quite some time. With amazing functionality, this program will surely help to create many a title screen for me. With many drawing functions, this program is at the top of my list, and it will stay on my calculator for sometime to come.

One problem I have with this program is that when drawing any type circle, it is confusing at first. To make the circle larger, you must press the up button. To me, it is natural to press either right or left. This could be fixed with a simple "or" instruction placed when sizing the circle [which I have done on my calc..]. I wouldn't say this is so much a bug, but had I not went into the source to see what was up, I would have surely reported this as a bug. I recommend, though it isn't necessary, to make circles be able to be created by pushing right and left or up and down. It is just more natural to me.

Also, the fill function, though it's a great idea, is a tad flawed.. it seems to never fill in all the way and takes a drastically long time to do it. Suggestion: Take it out.

Graphics: 10/10
Speed: 7/10
Usefullness: 9/10
Overall: 26/30 (87%.. Good Job)

This is one of those drawing programs. Or at least that is what I thought when I downloaded it. But this program has a lot more than just a drawing space. You can make squares and circles, and basic shapes. You can invert the screen, and many more things. And the interface of the program is really neat. So if you are willing to give up a little bit of memory for functionality, then download this program.

Controls-9/10 You'll get used to it
Memory-6/10 Big!
Usage-10/10 Cool interface
Overall-9/10 Really cool, try it!
