xx A new programming competition of SyntaxBomb.!
« Thread started on: Nov 15th, 2017, 06:22am »

Hello,

I notice that there is a new programming competition. This is the third game programming competition of SyntaxBomb.

All programming languages are wellcome in the competition. Yes... use BBCSDL to write a nice game for this competition! Then the full potential of BBCSDL can be shown!

I see that the competition is for a 'retro' game running at 320x200 resolution and a fixed 16-colour palette. I doubt that the "full potential" of any programming language is going to be demonstrated by that! The skill of the designer/programmer will be tested for sure, but not the language.

Now, a competition for a game that runs in a Teletext (Videotex) display mode really would show off BBC BASIC: the only programming language with a teletext screen (MODE 7) as a built-in feature. grin

ok, I see. I don't know whether Basicboy will make a game for this competition. However, other BBC Basic users may want to program their games for this competition. I find this useful video. This video may help them in game design!!

In addition, this video will really help you! Yes, making a successful game for this competition by you will really make BBCSDL more famous and more popular in the programming world!

Yes!

In fact, although mode 7 is a text mode with block graphics, creative text-based games can still be made in this mode!!

ok,

There is an entry made with BB4W! However, that author is not David Williams!

Ooh, interesting! The BB4W Links Page already has a link to the author's site.
