Nice, that already must have been a lot of work.

Thanks! It certainly has taken quite a bit of time.

Wow! Super-nice! I really like it - surprising with the graphics level, you have done a great job... I like the 'Assembly Age, then the 'Quick Basic Age"... I like how the progression through languages is... you have done a good job here!

Thank you! I'm still working on a singleplayer ai and adding more content to the FreeBASIC Age.

@Boromir:
Can't wait to see how you implemented the multi-player... I am looking forward to playing with your code and seeing how to apply it towards my own endeavors!

I'm working on something but, alas, I don't have anything to show just yet (been working mostly on architecture). As soon as I have something to look at, I'll post it here (hope I can reach the deadline, though)

hi,

here's the title of my entry: "Impossible Victhorse" :)

@Boromir
Your graphic style is very original. At first glance I didn't realize that it is made using ASCII chars with parallax effect.

Current look of my game:

I am finally making some progress, but still so many thing to do:
* More work on the engine
* Images / animations (e.g.: The orange circle is the player)
* Adding Sound
* Scoring system
* High score list
* Settings screen
* Fix a bunch of bugs
* Etc.

I like the use of the Horsehead Nebula in the background! nice touch!

But I am confused... when I first saw your screenshot, I thought 'Hmm, some sort of scrabble + tetris thing... but then you said the orange dot was the player..... whats he doing and what are the letter blocks for?
