I thought I'd have a go at some more simple games so I could concentrate more on the presentation. This one is a vertical scrolling skiing game. It's pretty standard however I have used a couple of utility programs to give the the game a nice look. One is a word processing program written in basic that justifies the text. This I have use for developing the instructions. It makes things easier and enables me to think more freely about the information I'd like to put in there. The second utility also written in basic plots giant 4x4 pixels on the screen a bit like the ZX81 fast enough to plot complex shapes in a matter of minutes! I have also developed a Python script that can convert images into a format that can then be imported into a basic program. Take a look at the pictures from the game. They are printed in seconds on the screen in the game as they are prepared pictures.
I will post the utility programs once I have some documentation on how to used them but in the meantime here is the game. I have been running up against the 'memory full' message so hope it is all ok now. There is a table of imaginary of skiers that you can compete against and try to get the fastest time. There is Skier 64 and Skier 20 etc. You will need to go through every gate. It is also a practice mode were you can time your run without being disqualified for missing a gate.
Thanks to TheBF for the sorting routine posted in the 'Fast Simple Combsort in BASIC' thread which I used in the program.
