TNT Basic has been released as freeware, according to a posting at iDevGames. Currently listed at version 1.3, TNT Basic is a programming language that allows for the creation of 2D sprite-based games. Some of its features include hardware acceleration, TCP/IP networking, and a tile-based map editor.

New features to the latest version are as follows:

  • Now freeware and open source
  • New windowed graphics allowing you to make a game that doesn’t run fullscreen
  • Removal of 16Mb file size limit – allowing use of more graphics and larger music files Bug fixes:
  • Fixed option, control and command keys not working with the ‘pressed’ command under OS X
  • Fixed crash when loading 256 colour images
  • Fixed key release events being lost if released when a file open dialogue box was on screen (OS X)
  • Fixed ‘frame oval’ crash if using a transparent pen and drawing off the edge off a canvas
Those interested in downloading TNT Basic will find a download link at its site. Instructions, explanations, and examples can also be found there.
