I find it strange that in this forum of challenges, very few actually get participants. Lachie put it best when he said that the reason is that they are too open and often too uninteresting. So here's a challenge that's not only somewhat narrowed-down but also interesting and rewarding!

Remake Space Invaders!

You can use either QB or FB for this challenge. Bonus for sound and gamepad control. The compo begins now and ends on April 15th, 2005 at midnight AST. Team entrants are allowed. I don't care if you rip graphics and sound effects, this is not the Boy Scouts. Cheesy

The Prizes!

Aside from the typical "Winner" bitmapped plaque, the winner will receive a free domain name of their choice and free hosting for a year at DBS (total value: $93.59US). The runner-up will also get a bitmapped plaque. If either the winner or runner-up fulfill the bonus requirements, I'll throw something extra in as well. Cheesy

To Adosorken:

Hey man, that sounds like an *awesome* challenge right there!  Cheesy  You know something, I’ll bet that that “Space Invaders”-based challenge thing there was something that you have always wanted to come up with someday from at least a couple of years ago, ain’t it?

Even though I am currently busy on a couple of other projects here (and two current versions of my new FB palette library are in the bag already so far!), I would be real interested to see just how this challenge turns out, Ado!!  Wink=b

See you later, and I hope your new challenge here turns out to be a smashing success!!!  :king:

No, this is a new idea I had last night. When SJ came up with his FB 48 hour compo, I tried to put together a Space Invaders game to enter the compo with but didn't have enough time to finish it. Then I thought that perhaps a Space Invaders compo would be a great idea, since it's a rather simple game that's not very demanding on the coder and leaves a whole ton of room for expansion. So...anyone up for it? Cheesy

Can it be a 3D game? Kinda like instead of just going back & forth, you can also go into the screen?

2D or 3D, 2.5D if you want... Cheesy The idea is to come up with a game that carries the basic mechanics of Space Invaders, but not a clone...so anything new is certainly welcome. Cheesy

Yes, true, but your cost is less than $93.59, other wise you'd never make a profit...  Smiley

does it have to be professional or can we use the DATA command to bit map?

[edit]Never mind, i've found my bmp loader made by ymp or something like that[/edit]

Do whatever you want, the only rules that you must follow are that it has to be in either QB or FB, and it has to be Space Invaders. The way you code it is your choice, not mine. Cheesy

heh, well I was going to do one, but...with the DR. over there...I don't know...

heh!  Cheesy  I was going to do a pixel that you move that must shoot other pixels with more pixels! lol  :lol: jk

But 3D, that's awsome....mabey if I knew more ASM I could make a 3D library...that would accually be fast on a QB...heh

Taking Dr_D's history, its going to use FB anlong with OpenGL... He deff knows loads on that thing.. Mitth, when you finish SpaceMerk, deff check his FB OGL Demos! Smiley

Wonder if SpaceWarp would qualify? I did demos yes, but I never got to ever building the actual game yet...  :roll: .. doesn't matter either way.. [edit]hmm, wait, Space Invaders doesn't have a ship in it, or am I messed up, heard of it, never played it.. :Huh: [/edit]
