u smell nice
So why not posting the game algorithm thingy that I made on my calculator, hum?
It's written in TI Basic, so you'll need a TI calculator that's programmable, so.. like TI-80ish. I've got a TI-82+ if you're wondering.
And if you have a Casio for some reason, then your life is less happy, but hey, nobody is perfect [/bias]. Plus, I don't even think that it's as known as the TI in the wild world.
You're gonna have for quite a time to copy this, it's 1,700ish characters long.
If you have some trouble finding a specific character, then.... ask or something.
Also I feel the need to mention that underscores are spaces. Ye.
So, what is the game, how does it work, what is the meaning of life and all?
Well, the game is gonna basically display a series of nine 0s to you, with only one of them being a one, like this: "000100000", or that: "000000100". Each combination of 1 and 0s represents a number between 1 and 9, depending on where the 1 is on the line. So "000000001" is 1, "000000010" is 2, "000000100" is 3, and so on and so forth.
You goal is basically to enter the number that you see in your screen, so... you see "000010000", and you type 5, and your life is happy, and you can continue.
Now, a game that simple would be super duper boring, of course, bear with me.
The game can randomly add or remove some numbers from the number that is displayed. So before displaying the number with 0s and 1, the game can display something like "+2", or "-1", and you'll have to consider this in the number.
For example, the game displays: "+1" and "010000000". The number is an 8, because the 1 is the eighth starting form the right, but
you'll have to add 1 to this 8, as shown by your screen, so you'll have to enter 9 instead of 8, and then the game continues. (note: you can get more than one at once. For example, "+2", "+1", "-2", "000001000" will be 4+2+1-2=5)
Now this is fine and dandy, but there's a difficulty system. Every 20 points you get (20 correct answers), the difficulty will increase.
At 20 points, you can get "+3" and "-3" on top of all the previous additions and subtractions that you could get. So... "+1", "-1", "+2", "-2", "+3" and "-3" can appear before your number.
At 40 points, you have a chance of getting reverse numbers. The number will appear on the right side instead of the left, which means that it is a reversed numbers. With reverse numbers, you'll have to count the 0s from the left of the number instead of the right. So.... a normal "000100000" is 6, but a reversed "000100000" will be 4.
At 60 points, you can get doubles. With doubles, the 1 in the middle of the number will be replaced by a 2, meaning that you'll have to multiply it by two when counting it. So "000000200" will be 3*2=6. And then
, you apply all the additional "+3", "-1" and all. (note: you can get reverse doubles)
At 80 points.... man, you can get two numbers at once. So, on top of the additional numbers, the reverses, the doubles... you can have freaking two at once. The first has to be multiplied by 10, and then added to the second one.
Example: "-3", "+2", "+2", (reverse) "001000000", "000020000" will be 3*10+5*2-3+2+2=43
Now, you might be thinking right now that I'm super crazy and sick and stupid, and you'll be probably right. That gameplay sounds completely stupid and weird.
Trust me, I put a lot of thoughts (for once) into the gaming psychology, and I think that I've made a pretty "fun" game. I'm having fun, and I've showed it to someone who isn't as math-ish as me, and she asked me to send her the code 10 minutes after.
Have fun I guess?
