The Golden French Fry -- need beta testing

Archived from groups: (More info?)

I wrote this game today, and wanted to have it beta-tested. Not for a
competition or anything, but to work out some of the bugs in it. It
hasn't been run or compiled yet (I'm on my brother's computer), but
it should work in QBasic or GW-Basic (assuming the lines aren't too

Anyways, here is the source code:

    Have you considered posting the code to a website, as opposed to
    cut-and-pasting into newsgroup messages? I can't possibly be the first
    person to have suggested that..... I tried to glance at it, but I get
    linebreaks in my cut-and-paste.

    Also, might a better course of action be to run it yourself and work out any
    major kinks, before recruiting assistance? Just a thought. I've been
    programming for almost seventeen years, and I can scarcely write a
    quarter-page of code without a typo of some kind, let along no bugs at
