The internal engine for the game rules though should be nearly identical.</p> <p>In DICTATOR you are the ruler of the African banana republic Ritimba and you need keep the different factions of the country - the army, the peasants and the landowners - happy while working tightly together with your secret police. Other parties you need to manage are the guerillas, the neighbor Leftoto, the Russians and the Americans.<br /> Try to grab as much money as you can and stay alive as long as you are able to.</p> <p>The complete manual of the game is down below in the comments.</p> <p>See here for more info about the original game:<br /> <a href="">URL world of spectrum info</a></p> <p>See here for a video of the game:<br /> <object width="640" height="400"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="400"></embed></object></p> <p>This is the C source code I based my version on:<br /> <a href="">URL github repo of c version</a></p> <p>I initially converted it to an iPhone app called LowRes coder in BASIC and then converted the BASIC code semi automatically to pico-8 - that's why the code doesn't look very lua-like...</p> <p>And I had to ditch the comments so that I came below the compressed limit of 15360 chars.<br /> (I had to replace my color constants also...)</p> <p>Have fun!</p> <p>PS: To be honest - I haven't tested it very deeply - so it could be that there are still some errors - feedback appreciated!</p> Thu, 11 Jul 2019 19:58:45 UTC 3D Dots 2 <p>Just wait a bit until the demo toggles the morphing to all objects.</p> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=65328#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_threeddots2-1.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=65328#p"> threeddots2</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=37527"> Toddl</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=65328#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> Fri, 21 Jun 2019 17:07:02 UTC A Tribute to M.U.L.E. <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=65221#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_atributetomule-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=65221#p"> A Tribute to M.U.L.E.</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=37527"> Toddl</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=65221#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>I converted an older LowRes Coder program to PICO-8.</p> <p>It's a tribute to one of the most clever 8 bit games ever made: M.U.L.E.</p> Sat, 15 Jun 2019 18:34:05 UTC 3D dots <p>Here's the shortened tweet version:</p> <p>b=0k=128<br /> s=sin<br /> c=cos::<em>::cb=c(b)sb=s(b)q=5+sb<em>1.8<br /> b+=.007srand(0)cls()for i=1,500 do<br /> f=-1+rnd(2)r=sqrt(1-f</em>f)p=rnd(1)d=r<em>c(p)y=r</em>s(p)x=d<em>cb-f</em>sb<br /> z=d<em>sb+f</em>cb<br /> e=y<br /> f=z<br /> y=e<em>cb-f</em>sb<br /> z=e<em>sb+f</em>cb<br /> g=7-(z+.5)x=q<em>(x+sb</em>.4)y=q<em>(y+s(b</em>1.5)<em>.4)z=z</em>q-20pset(x/z<em>k+64,y/z</em>k+64,g)end<br /> flip()goto </em></p> <p><a href=""></a><br /> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=64669#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_td_3ddots-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=64669#p"> td_3ddots</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=37527"> Toddl</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=64669#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> Wed, 22 May 2019 05:56:36 UTC
