Simplicity like no other

"I think its most attractive quality is simplicity, a quality that no other adventure creation language possesses."

Walt Sandsquish

 

IF Languages are like vehicles

EmailPrint

"I-F languages are like vehicles ... using Alan is like driving a zippy, easy-handling little electric town car -- it's often all you need to take you where you want to go."

Lelah Conrad

 

No weirdly arranged parenthesis

EmailPrint

"All those weirdly arranged parentheses, and semi-colons and strange curlicues hanging out in the middle of blank lines. Impossible. But when I looked at Alan I saw the light or, at least, English."

Eric Mayer

 

Even I

"Man, I just finished programming a little game with Alan, and let me tell you ALAN RULES!! It's so simple, *I* can program with it."

Rob Anderson

 

Easy to learn

Real capabilities

Eric Mayer (on his game HeBGB Horrors)
