Blitz BASIC programming language

Blitz BASIC was a programming language (BASIC dialect) for the Amiga computer, made by Acid Software from New Zealand. A Blitz BASIC compiler is available for the PC, with a sister product, Blitz BASIC 3-D which allows the creation of 'three dimensional' computer games for the PC.

The popular video game Worms was originally written in this language.

Blitz BASIC competed on the Amiga platform with Europress Software's AMOS. Both BASICs differed from other dialects on different platforms, in that they allowed the easy creation of fairly demanding multimedia software.
