Need more flexible keyboard control (Language Help)

I have been looking for a language to help teach my children to program. Basic256 looks perfect.

As a starter, my son wants to write a platform game with me. The problem I have hit is that the Key function:

[*]is not flexible enough to work with key combinations (e.g. hold left-arrow and hit space to run left and jump.)
[*]seems to introduce a delay between the first return and subsequent returns when a key is held down (i.e. just like when you hold down a key in an editor it pauses before repeating).

Is there any way to work around these limitations?
