BattleZone such a cool console with the tank controls too ;)

So you decided on what the comp is going to be?

Yeah, pretty much decided. I think no matter what you choose you'll never please everyone :o but I'd like the comps to be as open as possible to let creative juices flow.

I've also decided to make the prize fund different, guaranteed and not requiring donations ( there are some donations left from before which will be used in this comp ). I'll be adding £100 for every person who enters up to a maximum of £1000. The final prize with then be split equally between the top 3 winners.

The comp and details will be posted soon ( within the next 72 hours max )
Mac mini ( 2018 / 2020 ), 3 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i5, 16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4, 1TB NVMe, eGPU Radeon Pro 580 8 GB, LG Ultragear 27GL83A-B 27 Inch
Mac mini (2020 ), M1 SoC, 8 GB LPDDR4, 512GB NVMe 
Commodore VIC-20, 1.1Mhz MOS 6502 CPU, 5KB RAM, VIC ( 6560 ) GPU

Until the next time.

This is actually a really good idea. We've only broken ten entries once, I think, so this could be a great way to encourage new entrants to participate for the first time as they're very likely to get at least some reward for their effort.

Battle zone got remade.

Look's like I'll need to dust off my old line vector code.... of fake the whole thing with warping sprite meshes.

one button

Only for game play, but title menu's can use Nav and select buttons.

Tank auto moves, tap a key to change direction, hold key to start a shot and release to shoot? Tank on rails?

Some one button ideas I read a while back ...

I was thinking that it could be done something like tempest, but obviously a different perspective. You're always turning right, and you go the opposite way when you hold down your button. Firing is automatic.

Not mention one can use timers for additional functionality.

One button - more suitable for smartphones. For a computer, this option will, of course, limit and give "voltage" to the coders ("how can this be done ???? ...").
As a result, there will be specific gameplay. And someone will invent an inconveniently controlled game system.
But if the theme is still "One button" - well, you can get a new unusual experience. :)

If you think creatively then having only one button isn’t as restrictive as you think it is. Just think of it like a mouse but without using it to move a cursor.

One-button game is a very innovative idea. Well done. I believe that very creative entries will be submitted by members. However, it is not an easy challenge as well. Anyway, the final results of the contest may be very, very surprising. Sure.
