  1. That's why I'm garbage at these games-- I swear I tried everything. But I had only done PEEL APPLE and it suggested I shouldn't do that if I was going to eat it, so I ate it. Then I went and ate 10 more and as luck would have it no giant worms in any of them And yes in the US we have crotches... here a crutch is the thing you stick under your arm so you can get around with a broken foot. But I'm going to start using crutch your way.
  2. Hi Garry I am Seeker of Magic. I am Outside Cave. I'm carrying an apple, a dry branch, a sharp knife. I see an ugly troll scratching its crutch. I'm terrible at these games-- maybe a hint, do I have what I need and am I in the right place? Also is 'crutch' a misspelling or is that an Australia thing? thank you
  3. Excellent, I did not think of scaling that way carlsson. I did try to think of using ^ but I'm not so good at this. Anyway I like to see the better ideas.
  4. @carlsson RE: random number -2, -1, 1, 2 Expanding on @dmsc method for atari basic a=(rnd(0)<.5)*2-1:a=a+a*(rnd(0)<.5) is one more character than a=int(rnd(0)*4)*2-3:a=a-(a=3)+(a=-3) but i'm sure there is a better idea.
  5. You've given me a flashback to 1985 when I was playing the 2600 version on a 13" black and white television (doo doo dooo do doo doo doo [:doink doink doink:])... I don't know if it is any incentive but I will try it out on the a8 if you finish it
  6. This was my 3rd or 4th try, must have gotten lucky because i tried 20+ more times and can't beat it. 108356 Also accidentally made this roadsign, which sums up my experience trying to improve my score:
  7. I am pretty sure, this way madness lies

  10. thanks @ilmeniti made it through the lesson, very interesting results... I learned a lot. Somehow I missed the handy links at the top of the page to the various steps of the code, and I am as bad at searching on github as i am on this forum. @sanny i should probably RTFM thanks
  11. I couldn't find 'benchmarks.h'. Is my implementation wrong? I'm getting 533 ticks instead of 528 at Step 01 of your guide, @ilmenit This is 'git clone' current version. i added to your example-- typedef unsigned int word; word ticks; void start_benchmark(void) { ticks = PEEKW(18); } void end_benchmark(void) { printf("Ticks used: %d\n", PEEKW(18) - ticks + PEEK(20)); } sorry if obvious or beginner error. edit: 'git clone' of cc65, not your repo... and should have said I also do "#include <peekpoke.h>".
  12. This is a good video showcasing some beautiful games I need to try out. I recognize a bunch of names in the credits... I don't participate on YouTube but still wanted to say "I'm a tough guy! :-)"
