    Amazing job, I really appreciate the complexity of your game so far: programming these movement patterns and petscii graphics routines using prog8 I love galaga and this could be a very fun game to play if it is fleshed out a little bit more, and adding some sound effects to it to top it all off Hence 4 out of 5 stars, still a bit room for growth edit: updated to 5/5 stars because the recent versions improved many things and sound effects have also been present for a while now!!

    I have no idea what anyone would complain about. I was able to score 7 whole points on Brutal. This is a perfectly faithful adaptation of the classic "Dark Souls of tapping" title it seeks to emulate. 5/5, will tap again. And again and again and again, until I make 8 points.

    I played it yesterday. Déja-vu Galaga :). It was fun playing. Very nicely done! Some tips: - try to make more aliens. - more bullets to be active simultaneously. - aliens to fire more. - more levels, I could play the 12 levels without issues. - try maybe to bring in more colours. - maybe larger bullet types?

    4 out of 5, since if it had sound and if it was a complete game it would get a 5/5 from me for sure. It is looking promising. And it also plays nice. Nice PETSCII look and feel, and responsive. I love Galaxian and Centipede type of games, so I will keep an eye on this one.

    Outstanding editor! I have been using nano on the command line for years when developing, and this like solution is so intuitive and natural to use. I will be working on the ROM integration next so it can be coupled with the cc64 compiler being developed. Thanks so much for porting to the x16.

    Wow! What a blast from the past! I remember playing this on the Apple II/e in Junior High in the 80's. Thanks for bringing it back. Needs to be adjusted for inflation and maybe have the police drive up and fine them for operating without a vendors license.

    That blows my Mind. Really Impressive and I thought the Commander X16 isn't capable of running 3D Applications.

    Well, this is a paradigm changer! Now we can compile C code directly on the Commander, no need for external compilers.

    This could be the beginning of a REAL built in BASIC programming editor. Very nice work.

    Great demo Stephen. I also linked the getting started on X16 links on the github page. Especially: http://skilldrick.github.io/easy6502/ and https://skilldrick.github.io/easy6502/simulator.html . I tinkered with 6502 Assembly as a kid, but didn't get very far. The X16 has me keen to remedy that. Your code looks really well documented, so I'll be looking through that and trying to figure out how it hangs together and how to work with the X16's graphics.

    Great game, didn't expect it to have so many levels! I actually got to the 16th one before I remembered I wanted to check out the rest of the site. Would recommend!

    Wow! Really nice! Congrats on the splendid work. Stuff like this makes the X16 hit all the right nostalgia points. Cheers!

    when I try and run it, it just tells me that it uses a custom KERNAL and if I press any key, nothing happens EDIT: it is now fixed and the game is really cool!!!

    A simple game fairly well done. I'm not sure how good of a clone it is of the original, since I've not played that version. The tracking of which letters are not in the word is a nice feature, plus the highlighting of those that are helps a fair bit. The difficulty (and challenge) would increase if this panel was removable - maybe as an option. I'd make the following suggestions - allow the user to cursor over to a location and enter a letter at that position rather than always having to start at the first box. Also if the letter is in the correct location autofill it in all the subsequent lines rather than force the user to re enter it. Finally move the display to the centre of the screen. On my 76 inch monitor if is too far left I believe this game is well done, but it isn't my type of game.

    If program crashes in the emulator use -ram option to specify RAM size. Default is 512 but we need 2048. x16emu.exe -ram 2048 -prg STNICCC.PRG

    Reminds me more of Gyruss on the Atari 2600 than Galaxian, which is a good game btw.

    Classic game like the original. I got close to beating the first level on my second or third try.

    Wow! Very cool demo! How did you do this?

    Very impressive stuff! I ported a simple raycasting routine from an existing C routine to x86-64 assembly to see if I could beat the compiler (and I did but not by much). The thing used quite of lot of floating point math. Nothing a modern x86 CPU can't handle but with the 65c02 you have to be very clever! Well done!

    What (TomXP411) said! Amazing! Thanks so much for this. Looking forward to hammering on it, and to see how far it will take the system.

    This looks good. It's reactive enough to be playable. I'm sure adding game elements will slow things down a bit further, but this is very impressive! The strafe-move doesn't seem to work for me , but I don't care!

    I'm really impressed with this! It looks very promising, so one day, you might actually achieve a full port of Wolfenstein 3D.

    The nostalgia is strong with this one! And that's a LOT of BASIC code. Good work!

    Kinda fun, the delays before being able to move on could be tweaked or eliminated imho. (In other words, why have a delay before presenting "press space to continue"?)

    Great start to an original point-and-click adventure. I enjoyed the mechanics, the characters, and the aesthetic. Good stuff. Looking forward to future versions.

    My comments are regarding the version of the game uploaded today on Aug 26, 2020. This is a great start. I got stuck in the scene with the hay until I read the help about controls and used the hidden control bar. Later, when I escaped the cage, it gave me a thrill of success, which I don't usually feel from games in general anymore. This is transporting me back to a simpler time. The cavies are cute and their names made me smirk, especially Winifred. The music is soothing. Having said that, I'm currently stuck in the scene with the table that has the dog food and water. Nothing I click on seems to do anything, even using all the actions in the hidden control bar. Can't even back-out of the scene -- I'm a prisoner there. Since this is labeled an alpha version, I don't know if it's possible for a player to get farther than this or not. Back in the '80s or '90s, I gave up on these point-n-click adventures because it became too frustrating when I had no clue what to do next, and would spend hours trying a million things that didn't work. As simple as your game is, perhaps it could still benefit from a hint button in the top menu bar, that gives advice based on what scene the person is in... even when you (as the creator) think it's obvious. As for me, I'm new to X16. Downloaded the emulator just today. EDIT: You asked if I tried mousing over the table top. Prior to your message, I had tried clicking on the 3 boards that are in the center and toward the top of the table, which produced no result, thus I concluded that clicking on the table top does nothing. After your message, I noticed hovering the mouse pointer over certain boards of the table changes the pointer style. Then I removed the boards but still couldn't solve the puzzle. Found your YouTube video and then did what you showed, and that worked. To me, that's as random as can be, because a cavey would never be capable of doing those manipulations. Well, that's why I am bad at point-n-click games. What made more sense to me to try was to lure the goat over to the food dishes by "talk"-ing (chortling) at the food. And, bump the table legs to tip the containers over.

    Nice simple game. You could add a score by giving the user a certain number of points per block visited and then subtract points for visiting a block more than once.

    Really great to see the improvements to this and incredible that it supports the mouse through the web emulator, just as it would a PS/2 mouse on the X16 itself. Great job! (A small suggestion: The sound of each hit could perhaps be pitch-tuned randomly each time very slightly, within a semitone each way, to add more variety to each hit... Just a thought.)

    I followed all announcments of this game in the Facebook group. It was interesting to observe progress and I very much like it's current state. Thank you for a fresh look on an old classic game with yet new expirience!

    Incredible work! It works great, even in the web emulator with mouse support. Nice work!

    Loved it!! Giving four stars because the sound is missing. If you could nail the sound I'll give it 5 stars, keep it up RE: See I gave five stars!! Also: I am running it on emulator in Windows, graphics are not working correctly(Screenshot attached). I am not sure if it's windows' emulator or something else.
