We created the Lite version of DarkBASIC especially for you to test out DarkBASIC for an extended period of time. Although you cannot save an EXE file from the Lite version - all other features are fully intact including the complete on-line help, examples and access to the full command set. It's an extremely cheap way to test the "game programming" waters.
The Lite version is distributed electronically via a download link when you order, so you don't have to wait for a package to arrive in the post. You can upgrade from the Lite to the full electronic version at any time.
The following chart shows the differences between the two versions of DarkBASIC available. Please note that all three versions share the same system requirements.
