Rebel This is a short little demo of a side view action game I started working on in 2012. In this game, you control Mr. Face (surprise) just like in the Wry series. You collect gold diamonds and jump on bad guys heads. The game comes with four levels but also a level editor so you can make your own levels. (REBLVLED.BAS) If you want to replace the main four levels with your own, use the level editor and create levels starting with the name LEVEL1 up to whatever you want. Also make sure to set the DIRECTORY constant in REBEL.BAS and REBLVLED.BAS to point to the directory where the levels are located. This is probably one of the more polished games on here.

Frenzy Frenzy is another game I was working on in 2012. It's a simple "run to the exit before the bad guys get you" game. With each level the enemy's speed and target accuracy increases. The levels are all randomly generated. The game isn't finished, but it's still a nice quick vintage arcade style fun.

Dragon Slayer DEMO v0.1 This is a short little demo of how the battle system and menu's work on this RPG I was working on. In the demo you start with all the weapons and armor just to show you how they all look/work. As of now, it's a little unbalanced and hard to start off. (if you try legit). Unfortunately there most likely will be no final version. All help and further info is provided for inside the BAS file as comments. Have fun!

Hellbent: An ASCII RPG Demo This is a pretty far in developement demo of Hellbent. In this demo it has multiple save files which you can save up to 3 characters with. You can walk around the town, talk to villagers, and teleport to level areas. The whole "Ruins" area is complete and you can replay it as many times as you want leveling up your character and making more money. There's not much else you can say about it.. you have to EXPERIENCE it. (that was lame) NOTE: You can extract to any folder, just make sure to run the "install.bat" file first!!!

Numb - The Stupid Adventures of Jolly R This is the long awaited and finally finished game of "Numb"! It took me way longer than it ever should have taken anyone to release this hunk of garbage. This is a fine example of a one week/day project expanding over 4 years. I'm happy that it's finally done and I hope all you are too. This is a text based comedy game like Wry 1 but is only one story. The game does not suffer from stack space errors like the Wry series does. I hope you all enjoy this game, it's not that bad. (Well on a technical side it is, but it's still fun).

Nukem's Delete Program Version 2.3 This is version 2.3 of the original Delete program, both versions made a LONG time ago. This version includes the ability to delete more than one program at a time and it has a confirmation message making sure you want to delete the selected file. Also a more "Windows" look. (or "Doors" if anyone remembers that. :P) I am NOT responsible for any file you delete.

Nukem's Mad Lib Program This is just a regular madlib thing I made years ago. Ever use a mad lib book? It's like that. This can be very funny but unfortunately there's only one story. It's still worth a download for a little bit of humor and fun though.

Rolling Dice This is a basic guess the number game, where you guess what the die is going to be. It's sorta basic.. well very basic. All I did was take what i was learning in my boring school class and make my own program. Well have fun. (if you can).

Terror -=Fear the Unknown=- Demo This is the second demo of Terror I released. It's the old version of how the game was made, not the version you see in the projects section. It's still quite interesting and worth a look. In this version it's a first person shooter style look where you figure out a short puzzle demonstration inside the mansion. There are a few interesting versions of this game in the NE Archive if you care to look.

Text Game As the name states, this game is just a regular text based adventure game, or comedy. (...in a way.) It's pretty lame and I should probably take it down. I only wrote it because of a request of another Wry like game. It ended up being more of an advertisement ruse than a game. It's only 1/4 of Wry 1, but in this game, not every wrong path kills you. It also the titles screen has a nice "seizure inducing" blink too it.

Wry: A text based Comedy This is one of my favorite games I've every created. It has 4 episodes (1 secret) and many places to explore (source and in game!). It's hilarious. This used to be named "Lost" but ended with "Wry" because of Groovy Concepts releasing their now infamous RPG before I could finish my project. It's definitely the best Text/Comedy game I've created.

Wry 2: Grimace This is the sequel to the NE/SC classic Wry, it's no longer a text adventure but more of a side view action game, still has a funny story. The game also has a good amount of secrets and cheat codes. It's just awesome. It still has some bugs. But what can you do? (besides fix them). It's also 3x's the size of Wry! (in amount of lines of code, not gameplay). Be warned though, newer computer speeds can hinder game play. Try to use an older computer if possible.

Wry 3: Stale Demo v1.0 This is the second version of Wry 3, which is currently on it's 3rd reincarnation, it has less to do than the original demo but is programmed much nicer. The current version of the game is some what of a mixed version of the two demos. (Just programmed a lot better than these!) It has 2 "screens" that you can walk around, jump, and shoot enemies in. Also you can explore the whole menus. It's a very early version on the game but it's better than the last demo.

Zelda (very un cool game) This is probably my first game ever made. It's based off the Zelda video game series. It's a text based "adventure". Honestly, it's not good at all and is very short. I only really keep it on the site for historic reasons. The games says 1996 but the last modified date on the source was early 1999. So I might have started it in 96 but I know it wasn't released until this website went live in early 99. Eitherway, take a look if you want to see the earliest example of the style the spawned the original Wry game.

A Beefian Tale

Submitted By: Erik
This is probably my favorite Qbasic game of all time. It's the game that single handily inspired the whole Wry series. It plays and acts just like Wry (because that's where I was "inspired" from). I just had to post it because it's just THAT good.

Going Home (demo)
By: Puckdropper
Submitted By: Puckdropper
This is a text adventure made by Puckdropper that's similar to Wry and just as bizarre. There's multiple directions on which you can go in your adventure. It's a cool program, even though it's still not finished. You should check it out.

Jared's Subway Adventure ver.2.1 DEMO
By: Blurred Vision (Retna)
Submitted By: Retna
This is an action game based on the commercial with Jared in it eating sub's and staying thin. In this game you are warped into another dimension by a cult and you must get the subway sub at one side of the screen and bring it back. The whole time you're jumping over water and climbing ladders. There's only two levels in this demo, but it's still awesome.

Scrolling demo!
By: JMB
Submitted By: JMB
This is a cool pixel by pixel scrolling demo by JMB. It was a demo for a RPG project he's was working on around 1999 that, like most QB RPGs, never materialized. Definitely worth a look. BTW, I'm probably the only one left where you can still get this file. (It's from way back when he still had Umbra Soft.) A rare find.

Qbasic Compilers/Interpreters:



Microsoft Qbasic 1.1
By: Microsoft
Submitted By: Erik
This is your basic Qbasic IDE (no pun intended) that came with almost every computer in the early 90's. It can handle plain text .bas files and do almost anything you'd ever want to do in Qbasic. The only thing it lacks is the ability to compile programs, it's strictly an interpreter.

Microsoft Quick Basic 3.0
By: Microsoft
Submitted By: Erik
This is a pretty rare version of Quick Basic. There's nothing really special about it besides that it's old. It works just like the other Qb's on this site just with a slightly less "polished" look to it. I do like the "CTRL+R" shortcut to run your program though.

Microsoft Quick Basic 4.5
By: Microsoft
Submitted By: Erik
This is the "Professional" version of Qbasic and was hard to find for a number of years. This version lets you write bigger programs, but best of all you can compile them! That's right! You no longer have to worry if your final recipient has Qbasic or not, they can just run your compiled executable file! Though there are exceptions, like the "CHAIN" command tends to crash out compiled source codes but it's still good. It also works as normal interpreter.
