Socoder -> Wednesday Workshop -> #099 - The Balloon Challenge

Tue, 08 May 2007, 16:56
Wednesday Workshop #099 : The Balloon Challenge
Time until Deadline

Week : 9 May 2007
The Reason : We're nearly up to 100! Let's celebrate with balloons! (Plus, you know.. 99 red balloons, and all that!)

The Challenge : Create a game with balloons in it!

Extra Info
Yeay! Balloons! (I had to double check my spelling of Balloon for this week's challenge!)

Weekly Rules/How to Enter
You have until Tuesday Night/Wednesday Morning 00:00 BST to submit your levels. ^ See Deadline Link! ^

Wed.Workshop is at SoCoder.co.nr. If you can read this, you're probably already there!

Stick your entry underneath this post, leaving a link to your zip or the source of your game, or whatever. (I really should get round to that Upload thing, shouldn't I!)

If you can't figure it out, or have a really rubbish server, send it to Jayenkai@Gmail.com and I'll stick it straight onto the SoCoder (Official Wed.Workshop) site.

Entries will be collected during the week, and then entered into the next week's voting. (If there are any entries..)

Please try to keep all entries within small file sizes. 2Mb is the average maximum for files.
Additional Rules are available at the SoCoder (Official Wed.Workshop) site, under the list of previous workshops.

Last Week's Games
Last week...
Only Jayenkai bothered to enter..
He spent about 3 hours trying to make something sound "Heavy Metal" like before he gave up and grabbed that unused Lotus3 track he'd made many months earlier.

Fruityloops + Jayenkai = rubbish Heavy Metal!

If you'd like, you can give the game a comment and a little score by heading over to the Workshop page.

No celebrations?!

Just under 8 hours left (0C in hex), so if anyone wants to get an entry in for a sure-fire win, now's your chance! (So long as it's not "Tap space to pop the balloon!" or something stupid like that!)

Tonight... #100!

Tap space to pop the balloon (or something stupid like that)

took all of 2 minutes to write if you accept it cool, but I doubt you will!

There are 10 kinds of people in this world -

( Insert 16 remarks about to what extent people know hex here )

Found out about the contest yesterday. I wrote much of it during school. It's called "Pokey" (for lack of a better name) and it is a typing game. You must type the letters that appear next to the balloon to move in that direction, avoiding the needles (white lines) and getting the gold (yellow blocks). If you go into the source you can change the amount of letters of the needle speed (clearly marked), or just about anything else that you want.

Onety-one red balloons, floating in the summer sky, onety-one red balloons, onety-one balloons go by...

Looks like just the one entry, then.
Congrats to Irondirgible for his winning entry!

Half an hour left to go.

Are you all excited!?
