Bad Apple in BASIC
SixBeeps (2335)

It's practically a meme to put Bad Apple on everything, from graphing calculators to Gameboys.

So, I figured with the recent addition of an image buffer to BASIC, it would be possible to continue the meme to places it's never been: on Repl.it.

This took me a few painstaking hours to make, but it was worth it (I think).

The process was to take a GIF, compress it to 50x50, read each frame's color data, convert it to Hex, then repeat the Image Printer's code for each frame. I think this might be a bit inefficient at the moment, but all I care about is that it works.

After all those hours,
it works.

This is great! Maybe, next, you could create a GIF to BASIC converter using the same method as in this!

@Codemonkey51 You should start learning BASIC! I made Pong and Snake already and I think it is a great language!
