Title: [Contest 2013][BASIC] My Last Minute Contest Entry - Wargames
Post by: Juju on November 06, 2013, 01:19:46 am
So this is my Last Minute Contest EntryTM. I'll tell you right now, you won't believe how this game is awesome. This game will destroy your childhood.

Lemme explain. This is based on an obscure game written about 20 years ago that was shipped with BSD, which is in turn based on the critically acclaimed 1983 movie Wargames. The goal is simply to try not to lose. I came up with the idea, made and submitted this about a day before the deadline (just to make sure I won't start it 30 minutes before and submit it at 11:58pm), hope you'll like. If you can handle it in the first place, that is.

Now some reviews (because they need to review every game in existence):

Quote from: PC Gamer
This game is very faithful to the movie, therefore it's the greatest thing to ever happen to mankind since Justin Bieber.
Quote from: GameSpot
Holy shiiiiiit that's a game
Quote from: Game Informer
Yep... a game.
Quote from: DJ Omnimaga
I lost

9 bachelors ├Ęs computer science out of 10 agree, this is a game!

You want a download or some pics? Nope, you must wait after the contest is finished! >:D I don't want you to get to the hospital before, you might be injuried from the sheer awesomeness of this game.

There's a bug though: this game won't start any global thermonuclear war. Use it with caution!

I know, but BasicBuilder still exists, plus there are normal programs much larger than Flash apps. :P

Nope, and it's actually slower than regular BASIC when you use multiple programs.
