As you may have read in the thread Merge 3 Games , with the help of MrFish I expanded my tenliner "joyas" to a full game.
I ported the game from TurboBasic to FastBasic to include as an example in the distribution, so it is written completely in FastBasic, and the source is available to expand and modify.
The game is a variation on the match-three pieces kind of game, there are 3 main game modes with two difficulty levels each:
- Moves: in this mode, you start with 15 moves and gain one move at each power of two points (2, 4, 8, 16, etc.). When you run out of moves, the game ends.
- Timer: In this mode, you start with 15 seconds, and you gain one second for each three pieces matched, two seconds for each four-match, three seconds for five-match, etc. After the time runs out, the game ends.
- Hard: This is a combination of both above, you start with 15 moves and *loose* one move each second, but gain moves on matches.
Also, there are "+" versions of the moves with increased difficulty: the pieces that match at the start of the game don't add to the points.
Attached is the XEX and the source, you can compile it with the fastbasic cross compiler or type in the Atari IDE.
All the graphics are drawn by MrFish, the code is by me.
(simple) suggestions welcomed!
