Programming language for the Commodore 64. An extended version of the default Microsoft BASIC that was in the c64's ROM.

What he said on the left. But the bummer was that unlike the vanilla flavour of Commodore BASIC, Simons's Basic could not be compiled- and even worse required the presence of an add-on cartridge before programs would run.

Thus whilst Simon's Basic captured my attention with it's extra graphics commands, soon I moved back to the standard BASIC and used the PET Speed compiler to convert programs to zippy machine code.
