#twoweeksofcode: Cardfight

This is part of the Two Weeks of Code.

Cardfight. Now this one I’m actually quite proud of.

cardfight

You can play at http://kryogenix.org/code/browser/cardfight/. It never got published because it’s not quite done; it’s a little hard to understand what you need to do, and I haven’t done the hard maths yards to understand whether there’s a winning strategy for player 1 or something. But this is one of the first things I ever built that actually felt like a complete app: proper use of audio, a full on game rather than just a thing which tested the basic concept. I still might turn this into a real thing that gets released, at some point, once it’s got a few more graphical touches around things like the victory and defeat placeholder screens.

Also, it can’t decide what its name is: cardfight is the codename for it (‘cos you fight by using cards), but the game itself thinks it is called “semichins”, which if I remember rightly was a clever punny anagram but I can’t remember what it was a clever punny anagram for, and besides I don’t like either of those names. Better suggestions are invited.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
