BASIC in Linux--several questions...

Hey there,

I'm looking for a version of BASIC for linux that meets (most of) this criteria:

*Good for making games
*Freeware (As in, no money involved)
*Easy to install

Anybody know of one?

Or you can use Python and Pygame which isn't basic, but at least as easy and similar syntax.
