View Full Version : A game from a script
08-26-2003, 01:19 PM
Heres a challenge. A simple game from a single script.
and heres my starter. I put it on a html page cos its about 200 lines.
Its based on the popular game Mastermind where you have to choose colored counters to crack a code.
We have this game everywhere in the UK - I'm not sure if it is as popular in the states.
But if you don't recognise it then say and I'll explain the rules.
BTW - If it doesn't work please say because I can't check it from this computer as it doesn't have flash on it.

wait till tomorrow, and you got an answer (I think it will be something..., let's first see if it works like I want) :D

about 12 hours of pure scripting later...
it's done (ok it's a little bit more than 200 lines, but I could reduce the linecount by reducing the details, removing the notes and my little copyright ;) )
make sure not to have the yahoo ad text selected
(be happy, i first wanted to pose the whole code in [ AS ] tags here)
(just wanted to say, we're waiting for other games :D)
Very cool, mcGiver! :D I love that game, I used to play it on my old 486 SX-33, but it was called Monkey :) As a matter of fact, I wanted to do that game in Flash, but never got the time to do it... :(

guess thats much better than mine. Didn't know how to play it but it sure looks good - clouds etc.
better than the crumby graphics on mine.

hmm, better graphics do not make a better game. I like yours too
how to play it:
hold down left mouse button to incrase Firepower , move the mouse to set the direction to fire, relase left mouse to fire
here a version with some little AI (just some Math to make him fire in the right direction)
you can make the game harder by reducing the stupidity
(if you set stupidity to 0, every 2nd bullet hit's the target)

McGiver that's super cool;) scorched earth is one of my all time favorites. in highschool i used to go get stoned with my neighbor and play it on his p75...damn that thing was fast:)

Hey yeah, I figured out how to play yours and its a cracking game.
Your right better graphics don't make a better game but better graphics means more skilled programming - thats what I meant. My graphics compose of just a simple line. Its a bit too late to change it now - better graphics would mean an entire reworking.
