It's been a while since there's been a sizable competition around here, so I decided to make one. (Plus, I just got my laptop back from routine inspections and it's been a while since I posted.)
So, here's the challenge:
Make a program (or series of programs) that does the following:
- can move a character around the screen
- Either the map scrolls, or the map loads a new screen when you hit the edge.
Keep in mind, it doesn't have to have any actual content. Just make some maps where screen one is all 1's, and so on.
It can be on either the graph screen or the home screen, it doesn't matter.
- The engine tests the space you're about to move to to see if you can move there. How, I'll let you decide.
At the end of this, if I'm able to, then I'll upload my version of this, which is a mostly finished game engine that I spent roughly 6 months on before forgetting most of the code.
Yes, this is essentially making a game engine. Be creative!
