Factory Theta
« on: February 05, 2010, 04:28:59 pm »
Here's Factory Theta, a game inspired by Builderboy's Factory.  You are working at a factory where they are testing the new Theta Warp Cannon.  It takes the crate from the bottom of a stack and plaes it on the top of the stack.  Gravity pulls the crates down.  Once you have 5 crates in a column (up down, like 2nd to Y=) they are moved on to the next area, and you get $100 for them.  You also recieve $5 for each crate you handel.
There are 5 difficulies, plus a Survival Mode.  Enjoy!

Edit: By the way, press 2nd to use the Theta Warp Cannon and Mode to pause.  Use the Up and Down arrows to move the theta warp cannon. :)



Edit: The program in this post is not up to date.  Scroll down to the last post by me on this page to find the up to date version. :)  Thanks!

Nice one.

A xlib'ed version could provide some nice graphics with the feel of ASM, if well coded I think.
Just wondering that PuzzlePack can be ported to TI-BASIC with the same quality.

I know somewhere there's an xLib Pegs by Harrierfalcon.  It's really neat.

ehehehe I knew it could be done.
If weren't the loading times, it would pass as an ASM game. ;D

Yay!  I like it ^^ I can see how you were inspired a bit, but it actually is quite a bit different from Factory, definitely original.  Good job!

Thanks!
I need to find a little more speed in the "shifting and searching" code.  Any tips?

:O I got an error on Easy speed Fast

For(Q,15,N-3,-1
[A](2,Q->U               <- right here
For(L,3,6

Q was zero, and this is what the board looked like



I got quite a bit of gameplay in before it broke though ^^

Yup, I found that one too.  I need to change it somehow.  I'll look into it, and have a fixed version up today or tomorrow. ;D
(I think the problem is shifting while having 14 tiles in the row, or something like that.)

Thanks for playing! :D

*Bump*

Here's an update.  The bug fix was this:  I had N-3 where it needed to be N-1.  Ooops. :)
This version also has a fun little Easter Egg.  Since it's based off a Builderboy game, I'll let you guess what button to press.  Plus, it's based off Factory, so it occurs in one of those spots... ;D

I just tried this and love it! Pretty addictive. I like the tetris style puzzle except different. Pretty original and pretty fast too. Good job on this :)

One bug tho: Survival mode seems to be the same as novice x.x

Smart man + dumb woman = affair
Dumb man + smart woman = marriage
Dumb man + dumb woman = pregnancy
2. OFFICE ARITHMETIC
Smart boss + smart employee = profit
Smart boss + dumb employee = production
Dumb boss + smart employee = promotion
Dumb boss + dumb employee = overtime
3. SHOPPING MATH
A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need.
4. GENERAL EQUATIONS & STATISTICS
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
5. HAPPINESS
To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little.
To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.
6. LONGEVITY
Married men live longer than single men do, but married men are a lot more willing to die.
7. PROPENSITY TO CHANGE
A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.
8. DISCUSSION TECHNIQUE
A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Girls = Time * Money (Girls are a combination of time and money)
Time = Money (Time is money)
Girls = Money squared (So, girls are money squared)
Money = sqrt(Evil) (Money is also the root of all evil)
Girls = sqrt(Evil) squared (So, girls are the root of all evil squared)
Girls = Evil (Thus, girls are evil)
