Ok, here's the 20 line game I wrote in regular dark basic:

rem -- Welcome to Dark Crypt by J. Whiddon for the 20 line challenge!
rem -- You were sent to a dark crypt to rescue a damsel in distress taken captive by
rem -- the evil mummies.
rem -- game mechanics:
rem -- The damsel is randomly positioned in the crypt at the start of the game. Every successful
rem -- rescue adds 10 points to your score. Unfortunately the fog will get thicker and your
rem -- movement will get slower everytime you make a rescue. The mummies have the power to walk
rem -- through the walls and may come out at you when least expected.
rem -- The damsel and mummies are white and hard to tell apart, however, the damsel is always stationary.
rem -- The end of the game will come if you make contact with a mummy or you score the maximum
rem -- score of 200 points, whichever comes first.
rem -- good luck!

It cut it out part of the code, so here is where you can find everything.

There are media files that go with this game.
You can download them and the source code from this URL:

Well, enjoy!

Well, if you just take out:

It would be less than 20!

That's about right!
