Background

A long time ago I was given a TRS-80 Model 100. I spent a ton of time learning how to program it and writing little programs in its dialect of BASIC.

One of the games I recall making was like this one - flying through blocks that you have to avoid. In particular, the blocks moved in a discrete fashion down the screen, which allowed you to time your moves.

This game is intended to look and feel similar to (how I remember) playing that game on the Model 100.

Note: the "spaceship" is not part of the Model 100 character set, so I did cheat there.

Really liked the game.  I've never had Model 100, so for me this game throwbacks to the old 9999-in 1 pocket tetris :)

 It would be nice to add some sound to the game. 

P.S. High score 283 ;)

Thank you! That's a pretty good score!
