New Game Development Idea

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about working on coding (when I have time) a new game that's playable via serial connection whether it be modem or telnet.

 

I want to work on something simple at first to get the concept down and then we can use the main code as a primer if you will to develop other 2 player games.

 

I am thinking of maybe Checkers at first maybe a new version of Battleship or Risk eventually.

 

Even maybe 'Global Thermal Nuclear War'! :-D

 

Any other ideas?

Assuming that you are using BASIC, you might want to consider learning from taking apart old basic games like the ones found:-

Byte magazine published a range of excellent programming books, I am sure you can find them on the web.

 

Also checkout the David Ahl ( the founder of Creative Computing magazine) game program books.
