If you played the "classical" “Bored Generation” for the TI-86 (ASM), then you know what to expect from this game. While both of these versions of “BG” (BASIC version and ASM version) have the same game objective as the original 86 game (whatever that objective might be), they both are inferior to their 86 counterpart. The ASM version looks worse than the 86 version - the little guy looks nothing like the cool gangster with the backwards hat that we all grew up to love ;) The BASIC version is withered with domain errors, so there really isn't any purpose in playing it. The BASIC version is also too slow to be playable. The "routines" used in the BASIC code are inefficient and full of “lbl” and “goto” statements. The author should use logical loops instead, since they do cause the program to run faster.

Overall, this earns a 2/10 score.
