=============

The goal is that this list contains a lot of Small Basic programs. We’re looking for interactive programs that are easy to use, fun, and have little to no learning curve.

To browse a larger variety of programs that are listed categorically, see Small Basic Program Gallery – Listed By Category. Categories include Games, Graphical, Math, Physics, Productivity Apps, Sciences (Other), Sound, and Text.

You should also come back later, because this list will evolve over time.

Leave a comment with more programs to add. We’ll need a name, a link to download it, and the name/profile of the developer. On TechNet Wiki, you’ll find a version of this article that lists even more programs. (This blog post is limited to interactive programs that are easy to use, meaning they have little to no learning curve.)

Thanks!

  1. This will help to find Small Basic programs.  I recommend following program IDs for S.

    STARGATES, SOKO, SNKBITE

  2. Hey there! I would like to see my Installere here. You can find it here:  timosbprograms.blogspot.de

    It is still an Alpha version. πŸ˜‰

  3. My analog clock with wood texture:

    VKC687

    Link: smallbasic.com/…/program

  4. User Ed says:

    Well Math Man is the only one who followed the guidelines. It requires zero hunting. So I'll add that one now.

    Please include a link to the program page where it can  be embedded (or the code can be grabbed).

    Thanks!

  5. User Ed says:

    Math Man, are you really 10?

  6. User Ed says:

    Nonki,

    Stargates wasn't running for me. What was missing? Thanks!

  7. User Ed says:

    Oh and any IDs or names will work, not just "S". I started with "S" just because that's what I found first.

    Thanks!

  8. User Ed says:

    I added "SnakeBite". Does anyone have a link to "Davey Wavey"s profile?

    Thanks!

  9. User Ed says:

    Nonki,

    I added SokoCUTE! Great game! Do you know who made it?

    Thanks!

  10. NaochanON says:

    kts99 made sokocute.  PLZ see here.

    blogs.msdn.com/…/sample-of-the-week-soko.aspx

  11. User Ed says:

    NaochanON,

    I added kts99 as the author. Can you link to the program page (with code) for your Space Invaders?

    Thanks!

  12. NaochanON says:

    Note: Invader game   HQB587  works very slow on web.

    So you'd better run it local.

  13. Here is the code for the current alphaversion of my Installer:

    http://www.mediafire.com

  14. User Ed says:

    Timo, do you have a program code for it like the others?

    Thanks

  15. User Ed says:

    NaochanON,

    I added the invader game and Dave Wavey's linnk. Thanks!

  16. User Ed says:

    Noah's blog has a bunch that I'm going through: sbprogramming.blogspot.com/…/programs_26.html

  17. Abraham says:

    Hi, Does anybody has a calculator in graphicswindow? Im working on one but Im stuck if anybody could lend me a code to understand it I would apreciate it

  18. Ed, I could play STARGATES.  Original article in Small Basic Forum is here.  social.msdn.microsoft.com/…/6c6dea16-fa11-4d24-84da-d422f3e17daa

  19. User Ed says:

    Anybody know who made 1942? It's a fantastic port!

  20. NaochanON says:

    I made a program list.   They are posted on "Post your sample source code here and get featured on our blogs! (1) to (4) and showcase (5) "

    PLZ see import code   SGX870 .

    (Sorry  programmer name is not written.)

  21. NaochanON says:

    Super Pong game is made by Litdev .

    I saw it in his sample directory.    http://litdev.hostoi.com/#

    NaochanON,

    Thanks! I added Laurent20 as the creator of the 1942 game.

  26. User Ed says:

    Link to NaochanON's program list: smallbasic.com/…/program

    Also, I added Blimp and Analogue Clock. I also gave Litdev credit for SuperPong.

  27. User Ed says:

    @Abraham and Rene:

    Here's a calculator in GraphicsWindow (from Alex_2000): smallbasic.com/…/program

  28. User Ed says:

    @Timo: I updated with your new download page. Can you get it in the program list?

    I also added Calculator just now.

  29. Which program list do you mean? I only know this one.

  30. User Ed says:

    Timo,

    I mean adding it to this site: smallbasic.com/…/program

    Thanks!

  31. Todd says:

    I have created a program to write whatever you type in with the turtle: XSQ487

    I also have a little game I created for year 9 IT assessment: CFZ796

    If somebody would like, feel free to do up the graphics for the game, at the time I only had access to what SB had built in πŸ™‚

  32. Here is the code:  TCQ854

    And here is the side:  smallbasic.com/…/program

    My description is not listeet there (ERROR?!). You will need the LitDev extension to use the icon function.

  33. Ed, it would be nice if you write at my Installer insteat of "by Timo So", "by Timo SΓΆ". Thanks!

  34. It would be very nice too, if you add my game CLICK THE BUTTON.

    Davies,

    Can you ask this with a ton more detail in the Small Basic forum?

    social.msdn.microsoft.com/…/threads

    Thanks!

  53. User Ed says:

    Spence,

    Care to explain your frustration? Thanks!

  54. User Ed says:

    I added the Text to Binary Converter from Amir. Here's the blog post where I featured it: blogs.msdn.com/…/text-to-binary-converter-small-basic-featured-program.aspx

  55. This provides a nice overview. I would like to have a similar list – not sorted by alphabet but by categories like Games, Math, Drawing etc. It would be nice to have a browsing possibility by categories on this site: smallbasic.com/…/program  also – so users can find a lot of additional help this way and study different script solutions related to some keywords.  

  56. User Ed says:

    True. I can't add a list to the site, but I can add it to this blog and the wiki.

    Would it be by category, then subcategory, and then alphabetical?

    Thanks!

  57. User Ed says:

    Based on this discussion with Rene, I added a categorical Program Gallery: blogs.msdn.com/…/small-basic-program-gallery-listed-by-category.aspx

    2D Universe, Gravity Field Simulation, Lace Drawing, Raytracer

  83. John says:

    Would be great if the entire gallery title and description were searchable. I have been adding #CKC to the program descriptions I publish (used for teaching) but I can't retrieve them using a search function. Not a huge deal because I write them down but if I don't I have to republish as I can not find a way to find programs I publish if I don't know the sysgen ID.

    And the categories I used when publishing are not listed in the Cat List on the Gallery page.

    Can you write some baseball games??

                                                 Thanks   a   lot

  87. User Ed says:

    Anthony, I'll give you a hoop. Head to the forum and click on the latest challenge thread (pinned at the top): social.msdn.microsoft.com/…/threads

    In there, suggest a baseball game for the next challenge. Then (knock on wood), the next month we'll have 1-3 solid baseball games!

  88. User Ed says:

    I added several Science related programs, Triple Six, and Small Block Builder.

  90. Alan Hughes says:

    I wish to try writing a simple program that could do the following:
    1. Allow the input of about 5 or 6 different items(mixture of text and numbers)
    2. Select one of these items which would then use one of 5 or 6 Databases to check and if not present then install this into the Database
    3. following that entry to return to select another of the entered items and follow the same procedure this time with a different Database
    4. repeat this until ready for a new input
    Years ago I did a small amount of programming in Basic and then after that in Dbase3 but whether that would help me or hinder me
    I am not sure.
    This is only for personal use for some minor record keeping for my hobby of Amateur radio.
    Would Small Basic be a likely program to try and learn for this.
    I would appreciate any comments, Thanks

    1. Alan, yes, Small Basic can do that. You can store the items in an array. There’s also an extension available for accessing a full database.

      Please ask questions in the forum, where they will help you out:
