UNO for the Ti99?

Recommended Posts

Was there ever a version of UNO made for the 99? UNO is one of my favorite card games and really would love to play it on the 99.

Something I have wanted to do since I was a teen.  On my list of "never got around to do."  Have a bunch of assets done up but never put it to keyboard.

Kinda off topic, but i can't see starting a thread for it:

Was a Skipbo game ever made for the 99?

 

While i'm at it: How about DOS, the "sequel" to UNO?;)

I never knew there was a sequel, love that it's called DOS I'll have to check it out.

Never heard of either game, I'll look into them. I enjoy programming games of logic & luck.

speaking of card games, I working on Mille-Bournes card game. It's another translation from a Atari 800 game I did years ago.

When I get time I'll have to read the wiki, the rules seem pretty deep. Might also get me into a wiki-hole of card games.

Wiki makes it sound worse than it is. I play the 2 player version, simple to program.

Love Mille Bornes! It was my favorite game growing up and still have a copy of it. I can envision an AI algorithm for it that could play a mean game. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Mille-Bournes is a very fun game.  Back in the day, Loadstar published a version of it called 1000 Miler for the Commodore 64 that I played a lot (and still play in emulation).  Some of the rules were slightly changed, and it graphically depicted the hazards and the race, but it was quite fun at the same time.  Seems like it could be done in Extended BASIC pretty easily with some modifications for the resolution of the 99/4A.  It something I’ve thought about trying to do since the 64 version is written in BASIC.  The graphics are of course all POKEs and whatnot, but the logic of the game is in BASIC.

I like UNO. There is a spin off card game called "O'NO 99".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O%27NO_99

 

For its name alone it would make sense to have a TI-99 version :)

well, I guess then I better finish it. :) And yes, the Atari version I have does play a mean game.

Oh, I still have my Mille Bornes cards too.
