Thanks for all the comments; I'm sorry for the delayedresponse. I was a groomsman at a wedding and it took far too much of my time.
you'll also need a negation if statement: "Ift here is NO WALL at position".
There actually is a NOT statement but I didn't put it in thedemo because I didn't think it necessary to demonstrate the idea.
It was really fun playing around with this. Thanksfor the time. Nice to see with how few statements you can write a completesolving algorithm
Thanks. You're algorithm is actually better than mine but that'swhy I wanted to develop this. The idea of sharing each other's answer to aproblem until the best one is found. That's why I think an AI battle game willbe the best because there are lots of strategies that one can find to counterother strategies.
This is a very intuitive concept! I really like it.As other people said, the main issue I see so far is that there's no way totell the character "if there is NOT a wall at a position..." And ofcourse I expect in the full thing you wouldn't have the same number of each ofthose tiles and such. But anyway, it's really nice. Reminds me of a coupleflash games I've played, except even more creative because this hinges on ifstatements while most similar games just make a robot do something in sequence.(regardless of conditions)
Thanks, I love the robot strategy games like light bot
but I think the way I did the visual programing is a better way to show how programming works. I added other statements like a loop but found that justusing an if statement works the best.
Another (perhaps more limiting) approach is a grid-basedgame. I forget who it was, but someone made such a game where the goal was toprogram fighting robots. Around 4 years ago, I liked the idea enough to createa similar game.
Unfortunately, I think games of this type are notparticularly popular except to those of us who already enjoy programming. Despite that, these kinds of games can provide hours of educational entertainment.
Sorry but I'm unable to play your game but if you can giveme a .exe I would love to try it out.
I know what you mean about the popularity, I tried to get myroommates to play it but they found the idea boring.
I was thinking there would be puzzles like this maze as tutorials. Some of my ideas so far are:
- Sorting numbers
- Sudoku salver?
Any more ideas would be awesome, please do not hesitate togive any feedback
