a little friendly competition[not actually a contest]
« on: February 22, 2011, 07:33:32 pm »
hullo everyone.
i thought a little friendly competition may be in order so as to keep our minds sharp and fingers nimble. basically someone(in this case, me) names a fairly simple challenge. this challenge has to be the creation of some game or solving of some problem that can be approached from multiple angles, and at the same time can be finished in a day of so. the "winner" (whomever's program is the favourite of the other people who participate in that round) gets to choose the next challenge(or can defer if he'd rather not, in which case whomever else wants to can propose a challenge).

this is not in any way intended to be an official contest; the purpose is simply to toss around ideas and to show people how many different possible ways there are to solve a problem. because of this, language used(or even platform) don't really matter. feel free to use anything from TI BASIC to python. just keep in mind that, in order to pick a favourite, your competitors have to actually be able to run your program :P

ok, here is a simple one to start us off: create the most difficult, but still theoretically playable, tunnel game in existence.
mine is attached below. (note, this program won't run properly in an emu, as the display method it uses relies on actual hardware. i included a screenshot anyways, though XD)

That actually looks pretty cool, reminds me of that tunnel clone in the Axe contest last year for some reason :P

Yes but It won't let me load any programs to it so it kind of sucks.

Alright, spent about 2 hours on this, I think that's enough. I promise once you've gone for about a minute your adrenaline really gets pumping, this game gets insanely hard. At that point you can't even tell where you are in the tunnel when the screen is shifting, you just have to guess and move up and down based on the contours of the blur on the screen. ;)

CRAZYTUN.8xp is the game. It's bloody insane, I'm still shaking from playing it. This is seriously the most invigorating calculator game I have played. Ever.

CRAZYSRC.8xp is the Axe source file.
