Lost in the Mighty Jungle

March 14th, 2009

Well, I’ve failed the 7DRL competition – I simply didn’t have enough time to get a working title out.  Maybe with just a few more hours…  But alas, the hours have been scant this week, and I could only devote around 14 hours to the project (about 5 last sunday and 8 or 9 today).  I managed to get Simba wandering around randomly generated jungles with inert hyenas for him to claw or bite at.  If anyone wants to see you’re welcome to check out the Windows exe and source here – perhaps of use to people learning Pascal, as it has many of the basics of a simple roguelike engine.  Anyone who’d like a simple gander at the failed results can check out this pic:

Many many things missing, but oh well – or Hakuna Matata, I should say.  Will hopefully spend a bit of time getting it finished in future…

    admin :Effort was of course worth it, Joe, and I will keep the project up in future. My only regret is not having more time to work on it, since it was both fun and informative.
    Eric, not sure how useful the code is as a library, but go ahead and use it if you like. I think it will likely serve others better as “example code” to look at, rather than real code to use, since not all of it is perfect. Could be a basis for better stuff though.

    thank’s, I will be splitting it into different units to make alot if it independent from the graphics..

    I was looking at this and thought it would be a good program to take apart and turn into a library maybe or at least break into units for practice.. (at least some of it)… I am not done yet but I did add it to some more free pascal text routines that I have been saving.

    But the effort of trying was a learning experience, I hope.
