I remember I played a “Lotus Turbo Challenge” game on my TI-86, but that one was written in ASM. It's admirable that someone wrote such a game in BASIC, despite getting some help from FLIB. Of course, this game is slower than the ASM 86 one, and less complex.

I think that this game has a quite a few issues, even for a beta. When you quit the program, your home screen gets messed up with random gibberish, though maybe that's because I have an 89 Titanium that is not compatible with my version of FLIB. You cannot win or lose a game; you just lose. I am not quite sure if this type of game can be made as successfully in BASIC as other types of games. Of course, FLIB does help a lot, but it's just not enough to give this game the speed it needs.

This game is only a beta, but with almost two years since its last public update, it's probably going to remain this way. “Lotus” in BASIC is a bold and daring project. Only for having the courage to try to do this in BASIC, the author deserves our respect. I give this a 5/10.
