Biography: I am an amateur programmer.  I used to program with one of BASIC language on an 8-bit micro computer when I was a college student.  In 2010, I started to program with Microsoft Small Basic.  And I’m interested in making Go program and conveying the fun of programming. Now I am a moderator of Small Basic forum and a member of Small Basic Community Council.

  

It started in the May Small Basic Challenges from LitDev:

We had this community challenge…

Community Suggestion (By Ed Price)

  • Write a Dragon Game. It can be any game where you try to slay a dragon, whether it is a text-based game, graphical, or a combination. You could also make the dragon the hero.

 

You can see Athasak’s Small Basic game here: Small Basic – Thar Be Dragons!!!

 

On May 11, Nonki got his project started:

This is my first step for community suggestion by Ed: HMP803.

Screen shot of a program Dragon and Turtle 0.1a

 

In that version, it’s just an animation of the dragon moving. No interaction yet.

 

Nonki followed it up with a new version on May 12:

This is my second step for community suggestion by Ed: HMP803-1.

You can move Turtle with mouse.

 

Nonki returned on May 18:

This is my third step for community suggestion by Ed: HMP803-3.

You can throw stars by clicking mouse.  This is still alpha version.

 

This is my fourth step for community suggestion by Ed: HMP803-4.

  • Turtle is always moving
  • Move mouse to rotate Turtle
  • Click to throw a star

Screen shot of a program Dragon vs Turtle 0.5a

This is still alpha version.

 

In this version above, you can’t yet hurt the dragon.

That leads to his latest version, on May 20:

This is my fifth step for community suggestion by Ed: HMP803-5.

    • Move mouse to rotate Turtle
    • Click to throw a star targeting Dragon’s head
    • You can throw 10 stars at a time

 

This is a hilarious game, and it’s fun to see the Small Basic turtle be involved!

But a warning is that this pretty hard!

Thanks go out to Nonki for a fun dragon game!
