Programming Groups Hold Pong Contest
Posted by Michael on 21 February 2004, 01:12 GMT

Programming groups Greenfire and Maxcoderz are holding a programming competition. Briefly: You create a pong game for the 83 or 83+ using either ASM or BASIC. Based on several criteria including graphics and gameplay, the winners will be posted on the front pages of the two sites.

83? BASIC? What kind of lame excuse for a contest is this!?

If someone manages to write a good BASIC version of Pong, I think they deserve to be recognized.

[Addition] ...and I thought the FLASH APP contest was pitiful. This contest doesn't even have real prizes; if the programs were featured on ticalc.org, that might be different, but I've never even heard of these other sites, it would be like posting winners on <i>my</i> website (yes, I know HTML is not allowed), that averages less than a measely 20 hits a day.

Other than my ranting, I'm glad to see someone finally hold some contests, and my salute goes out to you. It also gave me the idea to hold my own contest, and you can expect one from my website to be held over the summer, with all linkable calculators supported and T-shirts for the winners.

By the way, someone needs to review Vector Space.

Both Greenfire and Maxcoderz have some of the best programmers around. Remember Fire Track 2? That'd be Greenfire. Just browse the sites, look at the screenshots of the games they are developing. Those guys are REALLY good.

Indeed, and I am working on Metroid for the 83/83+ right now.

Thanks for the compliments :)

I retract everthing I said. I was feeling REALLY sick and in a bad mood when I wrote it, and I still am really sick, but a little more level headed. Oi. :P

Well, if the program is good enough to win the contest, it probably will be featured anyway.

They could write it in BASIC and use ASM routines.

The reason why I'm not participating is because pong sucks.

Actually that's the reason why I'm participating. I am not really a pong fan so it'll be quite challenging to make a variation on it that will be cool.

Heh, good idea. Make a completely different type of pong and beat out all the horizontal pong games :)
