Here’s my take on Triple-X.
In the end, I’ll keep track of days survived and days without food/water for a final score. You die after failing to solve the code three days in a row (presuming rule of 3s for survival). I may create a txt file to save the Top 10 scores with initials like old arcades.
It started off as an idea for a diet – have to crack the code to get a snack, hence “Snack Time” (I snack too much so it was the first idea to come to me!). So that subtitle might change, but kinda diggin’ it at the moment. It’s a bit of a juxtaposition with the life-or-death concept.
This is just after adding the ASCII title:
Will update at the end or if I run in to a problem. I’ve had some coding experience before (a course in C++ 20 yrs ago at uni, some perl utilities off-and-on through career, and some python) so I have a basic working knowledge. I don’t expect to run in to anything I cannot figure out or use my Google-Fu to beat.
Not sure where I’m heading by taking the course. It’s mostly for fun since I’m semi-retired. But if I git gud maybe I’ll make some extra cash with my own app!
