Whilst this is a wonderful language, it has some drawbacks to it as well. This is one of the better interpreted languages on the 84+ made by a third party; it's less useful than BBC Basic ported by Benryves, but it's a lot easier to pick up and work with. My thoughts:
It's dandy to write programs for it, since it uses the built-in BASIC editor, and it a super-big drawback to include the
Grammer language interpreter with it; it's annoying, but there could be worse.
Language Design: 8/10
It actually has a nice language with a rich set of commands and, as the vision goes, a bit more natural to work with than other languages (hence the name.) There are a few sliced bread routines in there (seriously, particle effects taking up 4 command slots? And they still have very little point? If the language is too slow to do it on its own, why make new routines when you could instead have inline assembly or something?), but many of the routines *are* useful.
Interpretation Speed: 7/10
It is pretty fast for an interpreted language based directly on the TI-BASIC tokens, but it isn't as slow as it says it is -- it's not nearly comparable to Assembly or compiled Axe. But it's a lot better than TI-BASIC!
