Wednesday Workshop


For a long long time, every single Wednesday, we used to have a little coding challenge.
A fun little weekly feature that started on the now defunct website CodersWorkshop, and served as the main reason for me creating this website in the first place.

Because of it's significance, these pages remain available, although the likelihood of us having any more Workshops remains somewhat minimal at best.

For now, however, you can relive the joys of frantic coding, and look back at all the past entires.

There are many entries!
Enjoy.

Wednesday Workshop #001

(15 Jun 2005)

The Five Object Challenge

Entries : 9


Using only Blitz's internal 2D drawing commands (Plot, Line, Rect, Oval, Text) to draw, you must create a game which only ever draws 5 objects onscreen per frame. You may not use CopyRect, or otherwise, to replicate more objects. A single Object = 1 single drawing command. If you use Text, you can have as many characters in that line of text as you wish.

 

Wednesday Workshop #002

(22 Jun 2005)

Foppy's Shoot-em-Up Challenge

Entries : 8


Foppy's sick of playing R-Type. He knows all the patterns off by heart, and it's no longer a challenge. He's had a hunt online, and can't find anything that feels "Just Right". You're challenge is to build the perfect Shoot-em-up for Foppy. But Foppy can't wait. So build that game quick!

 

Wednesday Workshop #003

(29 Jun 2005)

The Firework Challenge

Entries : 5


This coming Monday is July 4th, so this week's compo will be a Firework challenge. Your task will be to create a game which, in one way or another, features Fireworks as a main theme. (Meaning that Fireworks should be part of the game, and not, for example a game of Pong, with Fireworks in the background.) You can use any method you'd like to create the fireworks.

 

Wednesday Workshop #004

(06 Jul 2005)

Tainted's Light and Dark Challenge

Entries : 2


For this week's challenge, 'Tainted Instinct' suggested "Light and Dark", which had previously been a compo at ludumdare.com . So we'll nick that, then.. This week, you must make a game that features the theme of Light and Dark. You have 5 days. If you had previously entered the old Light + Dark compo, you may NOT reuse that game, and must make something else.

 

Wednesday Workshop #005

(13 Jul 2005)

The Moody Text Adventure Challenge

Entries : 9


Moody loves his games, but he also likes to read. Unfortunately, the last Text Adventure on the market was about 50,000 years ago... So, make him a new one!

 

Wednesday Workshop #006

(20 Jul 2005)

The Ignored Challenge

Entries : 0



 

Wednesday Workshop #007

(27 Jul 2005)

The Mouse Challenge

Entries : 8


Tainted Instinct seems to think that a game that uses the mouse, only, would give us some interesting games. I'm slightly worried by that, and am expecting nothing but "Whack-A-Mole" clones. Never mind, we'll do it anyway.

 

Wednesday Workshop #008

(03 Aug 2005)

The Lucky Challenge

Entries : 6


Are you lucky enough to win this week's challenge? You'd have to be with all of last week's Voting nonsense! No matter... Moody keeps telling us that he wants Games of Chance, so that's what this week's is. Fruit Machines, Card Games, Flip of a Coin, no matter what, so long as the winning is more Random Luck than anything else..

 

Wednesday Workshop #009

(10 Aug 2005)

TNT Guy's Buddy Challenge

Entries : 4


TNTCoder found an interesting Flash game online, which let you play with a small creature. After you've done so much, the game let you create scripts, to teach the buddy new fun things to do. The general idea was good, but there's no way we could all learn a new script language, and then get a whole compo going, within the allocated 5 days. So, instead, we decided that you should just code your own little Buddy, from scratch. You have 5 days to invent, draw, animate, and interact with your very own buddy.. This seems like a biggy, so get started as quick as possible!

 

Wednesday Workshop #010

(17 Aug 2005)

The Sports Challenge

Entries : 8


Sports!? Ten, to me, instantly brings to mind Daley Thompson's Decathlon. Strange but true.. So this week, being number ten and all, is the plain and simple "Make a Sports game" challenge. Anything goes, from "Bunch of real olympic events" to "Make up your own olympic events", from "Football" to "Super Deadly Ball", whatever you want, so long as it's Sports related. (Except Pong, of course!)

 

Wednesday Workshop #011

(24 Aug 2005)

The Crystal Challenge

Entries : 4


Another Moody suggestion, this time we're to step back a few years to when The Crystal Maze was on TV. Your challenge for this week is to design a puzzle, be it Skill, Mental, or..um.. the other two.. Your game must last for exactly 2, 2.5 or 3 minutes, and fit the style of the TV show. If you are unfamiliar with it, think "Fort Boyard", or just click here. Any further questions, post them below.

 

Wednesday Workshop #012

(31 Aug 2005)

The Bladed Challenge

Entries : 2


It's time to code a sword! We've already had a Shoot-em-up challenge, so this week you're to make a game whereby the main character is holding a sword. Code an onslaught of enemies, and let the player slash away.

 

Wednesday Workshop #013

(07 Sep 2005)

License Month - The TV Edition

Entries : 2


99% of games nowadays are either Sequels or Licensed games. In light of this, this month is License month. For this week's challenge, pick a TV show, and then make the worst game you can, which still vaguely resembles the TV show. Just like the professionals do!

Wednesday Workshop #016

(28 Sep 2005)

The Colorful Challenge

Entries : 5


This week's challenge is to create a game whereby the main purpose of gameplay will revolve around the use of color. The colors can be used in any number of ways, but must be integral to the gameplay in one form or another. Try to be as creative as possible.

 

Wednesday Workshop #017

(05 Oct 2005)

The Good vs Evil Challenge

Entries : 3


This week, you must make a game in which there's very obviously One Large Baddie.. In the style of all classic platformers/shoot em ups End of Level baddies, make a game whereby your character must fight against a big old evil super bad guy.

 

Wednesday Workshop #018

(12 Oct 2005)

The Water Challenge

Entries : 4


This week, the theme of Pirates was suggested. Although I think that's a good idea, it does seem a little limited. So, we'll make it a Water challenge instead. Your game must involve water. Be it boats in water, pools of running water, or whatever, your game needs plenty or it..

 

Wednesday Workshop #019

(19 Oct 2005)

The 7-day Challenge

Entries : 2


OK, a slight change this week. For the next 7 days, you must try as hard as you possibly can to create 7 different games. They needn't be big, or clever, but they also can't all be variations of the same game. Otherwise, there are no limits to the games you can make.

 

Wednesday Workshop #020

(26 Oct 2005)

The Halloween Challenge

Entries : 2


It's Halloween on Monday, so this week's challenge was a no-brainer. Make a Halloween themed game.

 

Wednesday Workshop #021

(02 Nov 2005)

The Fire Challenge

Entries : 5


"Remember, Remember. The 5th of November" The date that UK citizens celebrate a plot to blow up a government building. Or, something to that effect. This week being "Bonfire night" week, I thought we'd have a "Fire" challenge. Make any game you want, with lots of fire in it.

 

Wednesday Workshop #022

(09 Nov 2005)

The Racing Challenge

Entries : 2

Wednesday Workshop #025

(30 Nov 2005)

The Useless Challenge

Entries : 1


In the spirit of useless seasonal gifts, this week's challenge is to create a game that LOOKS like it could be really interesting. Something that shouts out "Buy Me" from the store shelf. Something your Gran would pick up, and find instantly amusing, but which ultimately turns out to be a rather dull experience after about 5 seconds.

 

Wednesday Workshop #026

(07 Dec 2005)

The Board Game Challenge

Entries : 1


Create a board game on the computer. It can either be a brand spanking new game, or a remake of a classic. Or why not mix and match older games to make a new one.

 

Wednesday Workshop #027

(14 Dec 2005)

The Xmas Party Game Challenge

Entries : 3


The last of our Xmas themed challenges is a rather simple one. Create a game that is both a "Party Game" and a Xmas themed game.. I'm not going to be too specific as to the rules of this challenge. My idea of a "Party Game" is essentially one which can be played by multiple players, all together, all at the same time, with extremely simple rules. But, read the rest of this topic, and you're bound to see differing opinions on this matter. (ie another "Party Game" could be Truth or Dare, in which the players take turns, rather than playing together.)

 

Wednesday Workshop #028

(21 Dec 2005)

The Fascinating Challenge

Entries : 1


This week is Christmas week. As such, most people will be spending extra time with their families, and such. At the same time, more people will be at home, instead of work/school. So, this week's challenge is simple enough to make quick entries, but interesting enough to get everyone to bother.

 

Wednesday Workshop #029

(28 Dec 2005)

The Pong Challenge

Entries : 12


Make Pong. HOWEVER.. Your game of Pong may not be 2 bats, 1 ball, 1 line, 2 scores, black and white, basic, generic Pong. You must add something else into the mix. What you add is your own choice.
