I have written a small game called Cows and Bulls (Version 0.02) using Action!.

You can see the game rule in this site. http://en.wikipedia..../Bulls_and_cows

 

Source code and .xex files are attached.

Very nice!  Thanks for the introduction, I've managed to miss out on this game my entire life!

 

Some questions about the rules:

 

Please see the attached screen shot - I (eventually) scored 3 bulls - which I believe means three correct digits in the correct sequence, yet the game did not end or acknowledge my brilliance. :-)

Also, the article you quote mentioned that the typical game uses 4 digits - are you planning an upgrade?

 

Anyway, nice work!  Please keep writing!

I'm pretty sure that the bull and cow counts are backwards from the Wikipedia article.

Also a tip for players: all digits have to be different. You will get some odd looking counts if you have duplicate digits.

Yes. The counts are backwards so it will be fixed soon. And all digits should be different. Digit checking feature will be added in the next version. Thank you. :)

I am currently studying Action! programming to improve this game and being planning to make another games.

So I have several questions about Action! programming. Please check it out and help me. :)
