Here's the next ghost of my programming past. My previous post was about the "final project" for school, which I dated to May of 1996. This is older! I left a comment at the top of the file:

Ka-Boom! by Tony Lieuallen Started: April 29, 1995

I know this was originally done for a competition in the computer club I was a part of, displayed at the annual 4-H fair in August. It's fair to assume it was completed during the intervening four months, while I was 14 years old. The computer plays against you with decent AI. Given the simplicity of the game, it has a fair chance of beating you.

There's not a lot more to say that's not in the video. Just be sure to watch far enough to hear the awesome sound effects! See the source if you're curious: https://gist.github.com/1299983

You may use Markdown syntax in the comment, but no HTML. Hints:

  • An empty line between text will create a paragraph boundary.
  • Use angle braces around a plain URL to auto-link it: <http://www.example.com/>.
  • Use this format to create a link with different text showing: [An Example](http://www.example.com/).
  • Use backticks (``), not leading spaces to enclose a code block.

If you are attempting to contact me, ask me a question, etc, please send me a message through the contact form rather than posting a comment here. Thank you. (If you post a comment anyway when it should be a message to me, I'll probably just delete your comment. I don't like clutter.)
