Entry for the 2022 CGC. Is it any good or does it need tweaking? (Very raw)

Post by Crayon21 »

It's finished for now but I want a second opinion

I want to get the score displayed on the top right and for bullet holes to appear on the targets but I don't now if that would be possible given my skills.

In Heck, there are two options for perpetual torment:

Eat the Puckerberry and suffer for eternity:
drink nothing but a cocktail of The Last Dab and Mexican Cake blended and served with
habanero slices

Well, some crapiness I already see:
1) Score is shown against the text, not nice alined
2) FIrst target must be hit with A(why???) second with Y
3) Display on next line, not on top, will cause a SCROLL in the end
4) Second target to be hit with INPUT, not INKEY$
5) program that does each target with a new piece of code and not a loop

Extra options:
A) Make the game crash once in a while, IE test next target with a number and read VAL INKEY$, will crash on a letter
(not monkeyproof)
B) Text errors (GREAT vs GRAET or GRATE)
C) A fancy title for the game that says BUY ME but is SHIT when you have it ( I wrote C.U.M.S. and won the compo!!!)
ULTIMATE, SIMULATOR and sequelnumbering is extra score. My game was THE COMPLETE USELESS MACHINE SIMULATOR (Short CUMS). First title was USELESS MACHINE SIMULATOR, Added COMPLETE for the sexy name

Well,

Title is good, gameplay really crap. I don't know what to do without scanning the list,
but only 2 targets doesn't make a game to me.
