CardboardBox Posted February 12, 2022 Share Posted February 12, 2022 (edited) I decided to port Wordle to the Atari 2600. I've currently implemented all the features I wanted to but I'm open to suggestions. Instructions: The computer secretly picks a word. You have 6 guesses to find the secret word. After you make a guess, each letter tile will change color to indicate if it matches the secret word. Green means the letter matches and is in the correct position. Yellow means the letter matches but is in the wrong position. Grey means the letter doesn't match. Controls: Left/Right: Select letter tile. Up/Down: Change Letter of selected tile. Press Fire: Make a guess Hold Fire, move Left/Right, Release Fire: Swap 2 letters Select: Reset selected letter tile to "A". Reset: Go back to the title screen. P1 Difficulty: Right = Normal Mode, Left = Hard Mode. On hard mode, guesses must agree with the colors of previous guesses. P2 Difficulty: Change how each guess is initialized - Right = Use previous guess, Left = use "AAAAA" Color Switch: Toggle Music - Color = On, B/W = Off If you have a SaveKey, the title screen will show number of words won, number of words played, current streak, best streak, and distribution of how many guesses it took to win. Use left & right on the joystick to navigate between the different stats. To delete your SaveKey data, hold reset and select and press fire 10 times. Note: since I don't have a spot allocated on the SaveKey yet, it uses a page allocated for scratch space, and thus may be overwritten if another game uses the same page. Warning: If you press reset or turn off the Atari in the middle of a round you will lose you current streak. A key next to your score indicates it is safe to power off the console. Edit: I now see I'm not the first to do this! I hadn't seen VCS Words until after I posted this. Download: word_guess_v1.3.bin ? NTSC word_guess_v1.3_PAL60.bin ?
