The Stock Market Game 2010 (Beta)
« on: February 02, 2010, 06:32:50 pm »
Because I was on hiatus from TI BASIC programming for a while, I thought I'd build some simple little games to get back into the swing of things.

The Stock Market Game 2010 is the sixth iteration of the stock market simulator game series I started back in 2006 (but never really released online). The object of the game is to make as much money as you can in the time allotted. You start with a meager $10,000. You can play for 30, 60, or 999 days. You can invest in 6 different stocks that appreciate and depreciate differently across each day. The game will tell you how many shares you can buy or sell of a given stock when you select it. The game also automatically saves your progress so you can quit and resume playing later (so long as the TSMG6 list remains untouched).



If you find any bugs or have feature suggestions or tweaks, let me know. I'm contemplating adding taking out loans (for "buying on margin" or something similar) and growth trend graphs for each stock. However, this will only add to the size of the game which is already pretty big (>6000 bytes). Good ideas? Bad ideas?

Also, I'm planning on making a "Deluxe xLIB Edition" which sports fancy non-menu() graphics. Since this one will be >9000 bytes, would it be better to just add extra functionality to this version?

Yet another great game released today!  SubaruZX, it's nice to see you have a program released. I can't wait to try it, so I'll be able to play it by the end of the night. ;D

It looks great from just the screenie. :D

Nice I remember playing a similar game before, except that instead of stock exchange stuff, it was some stuff that was... erm... kinda illicit :P
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Hahah, yeah, I know what game you're talking about ;)
You could consider TSMG2010 to be the "school/work safe" version of that particular game, albeit a rather inferior version. I haven't played that particular game in a long while though so I can't really accurately compare the two :P

Oh, and coming soon: The Stock Market Game: Internet Meme Edition! Trade Rickrolls, Tay Zondays, blue lobsters, and MORE as you try to make the most money through internet memes!

j/k :P

I have to try that type of game...

I don't think it needs fancy menus because it is really just an extra and adds nothing to game that is strategic/luck. (?)
So I would go to playability and save memory.

I propose to make the menus in grayscale and in 3D. And also make them controlable by a PS2 mouse.
