This morning I've put Dodge Racer into an uncompiled autobooting ATR for ease of use. For some reason, it slipped my mind that I could do that last night. I'd gotten so used to the compiled autorun disks that I forgot I had the option.

 

I woke up with another small game idea, but it's my last day of Mardi Gras vacation, and I almost think I'd rather spend it actually 'playing' games.

 

Dodge Racer.atr

 

 

 

You should mention here that this is in Turbo-BASIC (I know you did in your video description), just for clarity. Also, I wouldn't call it "Atari BASIC" at the same time, it's a little confusing.

 

Interesting little game. Not bad for your first time programming.

You're right, I've changed it as far back as I can. I hadn't previously been drawing much of a distinction. Jumping to TB means I'm learning both at once--well not really, but TB documentation never seems to cover the AB stuff so it feels that way. The confusion is largely on my end.

Nice work Reaperman :thumbsup:

 

Wow. In ten lines of BASIC. Just Wow.

 

I was thinking of trying to throw my hat in the ring with something, but entries like this are a bit intimidating!

 

Amazing.

c'mon adam242 ;)

Here are the conditions of the competition:

- Call of machine language programs is not permitted ( X = USR ( 1536) )

- POKing is allowed (eg change the DL, PM graphics)

 

If poke is ok, how about DPOKE 10,ADR("ML-in-a-String"):DOS

 

Yeah, I know... Just joking :)

That's it actually. TBXL is Atari BASIC plus the additional commands and changes, syntactically. Any TBXL documentation is only going to talk about the additions, because all Atari BASIC commands are valid in TBXL.

I've learned a lot about scoring today, and I'd like to update Dodge Racer if I could.

 

Short of it is that I needed the 'high score' feature to feel more like it means something in this game. It really bothered me that players could just run back and forth in small (safe) spaces, racking up huge points, so I started out today by devising creative ways to kill them off for it. I tested a few--they worked 'okay'... But wait--that's not what they would have done in the 80's. In the 80's they would have thrown so many points at players for moving forward, that snatching points by being cheap would be a complete waste of time. Huge points motivate people to take huge risks. So I went that way instead.

 

There's now a lap system which increases a points multiplier. An audible/visible finish line granting these points/bonuses (it bugged me that I had an extra unused color), and perhaps most importantly a live score display. First lap obstacles are worth 1pt each, while completing the lap is worth 100, second lap 2 & 200, etc. (no wonder so many classic games use that scoring, it's hugely motivating and really easy to fit in tight spots). Somehow Level 2 is still squeezed in there. It takes 1000 points to see it--I haven't gotten there yet, but I'm close.

My second game for this contest.

 

"Abyss" - space trading game by Jakub Debski

Your father used to say: "The end of the world is not a reason to stop doing business!".
Now is the time to prove it! Armageddon has come in form of black holes that appear in the galaxy.

I have tried to put as much content into this game as possible. The game takes place in dynamic universe with economic price system that depend on supply and demand.
This means that with high supply the price is low and with high demand the price is high.

There are different ways to earn money in the game:
- Trade on colonized planets (A-J)
- Mine ore on unoccupied planets (o). This fills your cargo space with ore.
- Fulfill missions - get to the destination planet before time runs out (Planet-Day-$Reward)

Try to earn as much $ as you can before universe explodes (day 1000).
The game also ends when you are out of fuel. When fuel is low (less than 5) screen gets red as a warning and you can't mine planets.

Unloading of goods is possible only on planets that demand them. Do not get too many goods that nobody wants.
You can increase your cargo hold, but it's expensive. Warning: technicans are not able to attach new cargo hold modules when your ship is full (when you have no free cargo hold).

Beware of black holes (clubes signs). They destroy your cargo hold and it takes a lot of fuel to get out of them.

Abyss v1.1 - fixed bugs:

- GAME OVER text doesn't cover your money at the end of game.

- Fixed bug in internal game economy - goods on planets are properly modified.

Abyss v1.2. Changes:

- Balanced gameplay. Missions are harder and less rewarding so player has to focus on trading to get the highest score.

- Fixed title screen

Had a play on Abyss (v1.1), great Game :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

It was going well until I got greedy:

post-19705-0-58759500-1394636287_thumb.jpg

Now I've read the instructions above will play again on v1.2 - hope you've turned off that attract mode!

ABYSS...

Any reason why the color cycle starts to roll every 6 or so seconds after the game's been running a while? (I'm using v1.2 btw)

Is this based on some existing game other than DOS Drug Wars?

 

this title is great. I've been playing the shit out of it, even though I find the ship has a lag with the steering, i'm sure it's my setup.
