Basic requires typing because it is a program. If you want to do some amount of typing, you can make games using Basic. Whether they are fun or not would be a personal preference though.

I'm guessing you're asking because you're playing with a 400.

A lot of games use the space bar to pause.

There are a few games that don't involve typing but do use the keyboard (Defender uses the spacebar for smartbombs, Miner 2049er for the elevators, Micro League Baseball to make your choices).

Try something like www.atarimania. to get a description of the game and/or instructions so that you can figure it out.
