Amiga Blitz Basic was originally developed as commercial software under the name of Blitz Basic and then Blitz Basic 2 by Simon Armstrong and Mark Sibley of Acid Software in New Zealand. It was later re-released as freeware under the GNU General Public License. More recently Bernd Roesch and others of Amiforce have continued development of the editor and compiler, under the name AmiBlitz.

AmiBlitz has continued to grow and evolve, adding many features that allow for more modern coding styles and techniques.

However, this means that the AmiBlitz development environment has higher requirements than the original Blitz Basic environment on which it's based, so for developing on an unexpanded Amiga, getting hold of the older Blitz Basic 2.1 might be simpler.
