AmBored++ is an esoteric language written by Is this the Krusty Krab. It is a Brainfuck derivative written in C++ which adds more commands and features primitive graphics. It was named so due to the fact that I am bored, so I am making this for fun, and because it has more features than AmBored.

Features

AmBored has an array the size of 256 by 256 cells, each cell represents a color.

Another two feature of AmBored are a stack, which operates like a normal stack you probably studied in school, college, or your room at night instead of sleeping, and a buffer able store a value to be used later.

Syntax

The syntax is classic Brainfuck syntax, with a few changes and additions.

CMD Description
> Move the memory pointer right
< Move the memory pointer left
V Move the memory pointer down
^ Move the memory pointer up
+ Increment the pointed cell
- Decrement the pointed cell
[ Jump past the matching ] if the pointed cell is 0 (black)
] Jump back to the matching [ if the pointed cell is nonzero (not black)
, Input a number and write it to the pointed cell
. Refresh the screen
( Push the value of the pointed cell to the stack
) Pop the top value of the stack to the pointed cell
@ Assign the value at the top of the stack to the pointed cell
$ Pop the top value of the stack without writing it to the pointed cell
{ Rotate the value of the pointed cell to the left
} Rotate the value of the pointed cell to the right
/ Store the value of the pointed cell into the buffer
\ Write the value of the buffer to the pointed cell
[number in base 64] Store the color corresponding to the number in the pointed cell.

Interface

As mentioned, the output is a screen of pixels, each with the color stored in them. There is also a command to refresh the screen. This is because the screen needs to be refreshed manually, to prevent the user from seeing the whole process of changing the frame.

Why? Because I said so.

There are 64 possible color combinations, with each pixel taking 6 bits and each color taking 2 bits of a pixel.

Ay btw

If you create something serious with AmBored, please send it to me at harambethereligiousgorilla@gmail.com so I can add it to this page and give you credit.
