[ti-basic] Lazer I: bringing attention to an old game.
« on: May 05, 2015, 04:08:03 pm »
Ages ago, when i got my first calc in algebra, i made a game (and never bothered to learn how to solve quadratic equations, but then again i can just make a program to do it for me :P ). It was a laser simulater/puzzle game written in pure basic. When i got my own calc a few months ago, as i had been inactive for more then half a year, i decided to polish up the old game and start making a new version in axe. As i learned about omnimaga when i re-imagrated to the calcs as my main programming platform, the game was previously only available on ticalc.org . Link: http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/459/45934.html
The ticalc entry has more screenshots and a read me, but i will quote the readme here:
Code: [Select]
A fun game-position  mirrors to bounce a laser(s) and hit the target(s). current version (v 0_45) includes emitters, detectors, mirrors , walls , and portals!!!
HOW TO PLAY:

I have played this of my own accord before minus a few little control issues (IIIRC) it was actually rather fun to play and such. That being said, I can recommend this game if you like this style puzzle game.

Bump. Topic has bean cross posted to CW and Cemetech.
I am looking for level designers to design five levels for this game. As I plan to reuse levels from lazer 1 in lazer 2 you will be credited in both games.
Here are the requirements:
     The level must fit onto a 6 by 6 tile board.
     The level should contain a healthy mix of tiles.
     The level should be challenging.
     The level can contain several emitters, but beware, they can couse lag.
Here is a list of tiles:
     Air: just air.
     Mirror: can be spun by the user, reflects lazers. One of the states a user can set the mirror to is a "null" state, meaning the lazer will pass through the mirror with out reflection.
     Emitter, when the user presses the fire button all emitters will simultaneously fire a lazer. The emitter can fasecup , down, left, or right.
     Detector: when all detectors are hit with a lazer the user wins the level. They can be hit from all sides.
     Box: blocks a lazer. If hit, the user fails the level.
     Portals can teleport the user to any arbitrary tile. Portals do not have to "linked"
Other:
     Hitting the edges of the map is an automatic fail.
     Lazers can only travel in four directions: up, down, left or right. They can not travel diagonally.
     A lazer can still be traveling across the board when you win, just all detectors have to be hit.
