    There's no theme this time.
    Shouldn't the theme be "April Fool's"/joke programs? Because I know if I submit a joke program against real ones I'll lose.

    The person who advocated for no themes is now asking for a theme? Lol you've gotta make up your mind. Nah, it's so short. Since the voting is all going to be done on April 1st, you might have a better chance of winning if you go with the spirit of the day. But if you have a different idea that you think you can win with, I don't want to stop you from doing it.

    If you think you can win with it. Although, that's kinda a waste of a key in my opinion.

    No, for this one you have to make the whole thing from scratch.

    Nope; this contest is all about what you can make from scratch in this short amount of time. Edit: You can use any built-in stuff you want, like sprites/music/etc.

    Yeah that's fine. As long as when people download it, it's just SmileBASIC code (which I'm pretty sure most compilers do)
