Bobstones computer game
« on: February 18, 2016, 02:22:41 AM »
A few weeks ago, I was searching the Internet and came across this book:

https://ia800507.us.archive.org/15/items/More_BASIC_Computer_Games/More_BASIC_Computer_Games.pdf

(may take a while to load)

Notice at page 26 a game called Bobstones.  Out of curiosity, I compiled it and played it



Overall, I found it to be both interesting and disappointing.  It can be a fun game to play when you have a few minutes to spare, but unfortunately it deviates a lot from the version of the game mentionned in the book and seen in the series.

I'll make my own version in C / C++, how does that sound?

I'll find somewhere to upload the source and executable, expect it this weekend, if time permits.
