The program competes in the PUR-80 category (each line of code with a maximum of 80 characters). To run it, simply boot the ATR, and enter: RUN "D:MC.BAS"; or if you boot with Basic enabled, then type LOAD"D:MC.BAS"

The third title for Atari in the NOMAM's BASIC Ten-Liners 2024 is «Falling Balls» by Marco "spotlessmind1975" Spedaletti (Italy).
