A couple of days ago I went through this French web site www.hebdogiciel.free.fr/ where you can find and download 2270 BASIC programs from the Hebdogiciel magazine. In short, Hebdogiciel was a famous weekly French computer magazine of the 80's, where enthusiasts could have their BASIC creations published, for a money reward (yes, the magazine was offering money for published good quality programs). The web site author typed and converted into disk image every BASIC program you'll find.
You can find the Atari BASIC programs here www.hebdogiciel.free.fr/ATARI.htm they are moslty 8bit BASIC games, mainly in French. Very interesting if you want to learn, or have a look at how BASIC was made.
Do not hesitate to click on every link on the left sidebar to list programs for your favourite computer. (Hint: "Télécharger" means Download). Each download comes as a ZIP file containing snapshots of the program, a text file with BASIC listing and a ready to play disk image of the program. "Pages pédagogiques" means "Edutainment programs" and "Les deux lignes" was a BASIC challenge where you had to create a functional program (whatever it does, but only the most interesting where kept) in no more than 2 lines of BASIC code.
I have an offer for you all: If you are interested by one or more games, and want it translated in English (provided it doesn't contains too much text, like an adventure game, or isn't an untranslatable word game like "Hangman") I can do it for you. Just tell me.

Always great to embrace another rich repository of downloadable software code for our precious micros AND with a translation service to boot thanks to the sort of guys we have here on the forum - top man, Klyde!
