Home BASIC is a BASIC language cartridge for the SC-3000. Unlike previous iterations of the software, Home BASIC offers the first meaningful upgrades, as well as demonstration software. It is also the first BASIC cartridge to work on both the SC-3000 and SG-1000. The cartridge features 4 options from the main menu.
