I've been using Blitzmax for almost a year now (on my Mac) and it is a great product. It makes it easy to create games (assuming you learn some programming), and allows me to compile my source code for Windows and Mac. You'll have to search the web forums for a lot of lanuage info because the manual (or lack of it) makes tracking things down kind of tricky.

I've been using BMax for about 7 months now and it's excellent, tru it is a little daunting at first, but the community helps a lot.

Just give it a try. At first glance the syntax looks intimidating, but once you understand what's going on its perfectly simple.

Fantastic. I love it. Blitzbasic is what helped me finish my first game. Don't be put off by the apparent complexity of the feature-set! It's *extremely* easy to use, and very powerful. If you want to make games, try this now!
