Petit Computer and SmileBASIC are two fun looking applications that let you program a Nintendo DSi or 3DS handheld in BASIC! Both were created by SmileBoom and are distributed in Nintendo’s eShop. You can check out Petit Computer on the DSi today, and SmileBASIC on the 3DS later in 2015. These bring back fond memories of programming games in QBASIC!
We have brought back BASIC, a programming language fondly remembered by anyone who programmed computers back in the day. In the golden age of BASIC, it was easy for anyone to write a program. Now we offer you this exact same capability, but this time with the advanced features of the Nintendo DSi™ system. Everyone can easily enjoy creating their own original programs, from those who ever dreamed of being a programmer when they were younger, to the young programmers of today. Many programs are included to ensure that you can fully enjoy using BASIC. The included programs were also written in BASIC, so you can add new features to them in order to enhance your games. You can also take the programs and data you create and convert them to QR codes that can be shared with friends who also have Petit Computer on their Nintendo DSi systems.
