Tower defense: very in.
It would be neat to have such a game where competitors
could write the code for defensive as well as offensive units
in the manner of Robot Battle. Robot Battle had a stripped
down programming language to code your robots.
The game price to purchase such a unit
in the game would
increase as lines of code increased. People could deposit
their own creations for others to use in the game or keep
certain ones for their own use, possibly in online
The price piece would be the great equalizer: I suspect some
of the units in robot battle had many routines which they
could use depending on the circumstances - total amount of
code was not a consideration.
The heyday of robot battle was really before online gaming
took root. I think maybe the time for this has come again.
Or very possibly it already has come and I am not paying
This game had a predecessor for the Apple II as well. [bungston, Sep 23 2012]
||It should be called Hexadecimation because, if I recall correctly, the robot is oriented hexadecimally.
