Basic fast tunnel
« on: August 23, 2010, 08:34:09 pm »
I wrote a small fast tunnel game in TI-Basic.  It should run very smoothly, and last I checked, it wasn't very buggy (though that was a week ago).  Tell me how it is :)

Not too bad, but I lost the game. :(

I remember I did one a few years ago that ran at about 8 FPS on a regular 83+ and 16 on a 15 MHz calc, but since it pre-rendered the track before the race starts, it took an insane amount of time to load at first.

Not bad. The key pressing is a bit slow but that's about it. Only thing I would change is add in a score and change the token for the tunnel. Those periods make it really hard to see sometimes, for me anyways. Would it be possible to make it get smaller as it goes too? And does Ztrumpet have a tunnel game for HGP yet?

Yeah, it would be a nice addition for Ztrumpet's Homescreen Game Pack because I don't think he has a tunnel game yet.

He actually does, but he only has 4 new games so far, and he wants five for each release, so it's not in there yet.  ;)

Ah ok. I figured he would but just checking. Hey _player, I got bored so I optimized it and shaved off 30 bytes and put in scoring. Mind if I post it?

Ok, here it is. I based the scoring based on how far up the lane you are, so the farther up you are the more you score but the lower you are the less you make.

That mine?

Edit:
Ah ok. It happens when you're holding up while you hit the edge. It happens in _player's too. I don't know how to fix it though since I didn't completely go over his code to understand it.

6 for each release. :)

No, the reason is because I'm bogged down with my Axe entry and I've been busy lately.  I'll have more time when school starts, though. :P

Wonderful game Player!  I'm downloading right now! ;D

Nice game!  I was inspired, so I made my own.  Here it is, at 244 bytes, ZTunnel!  Enjoy at your own risk. ;D

-----------------------------------------
edit (70 minutes later):
Wow, after playing your game more I discovered that I could press up and down!  Nice touch!  Excellent job! ;D

Problemo :(
There's an easy fix to this.  Instead of making the string 128 characters, add a row of spaces behind it.  In other words pad it with 16 spaces making the string 144 characters in length. :)

Ah, thanks for the info.  I completly forgot to test that x.x  (plus I haven't touched this game in a while x.x)  Ztrumpet, that games looks very nice :)  Did you say that you could move up and down in yours?
