2048 - BBC Micro Version

Postby Dave_E » Tue Jul 01, 2014 10:42 pm

Not sure how many people on this forum still read Retro Gamer but I noticed a passing nod to a new game for the BBC this month. Absolute devil to find it despite the pointer - it's hidden away in a blog posting with the equivalent of 'Download a project I wrote here' giving barely any clues as to the joys that indeed lurk upon clicking the link.

I've posted a quick review here:


And to save you the trouble of trying to find it, here it is attached. I'd be surprised if this game does not achieve a cult following.

That's the one written by Eben Upton, founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation. IIRC he did it as a nod to the 50th birthday of BASIC. Of course he then cheated by using some assembler!
