Full old-"Gauntlet"-style mini-RPG, with monsters, mazes,
saving and loading (so you can come back to it later),
treasures, keys and doors, upgrades you can find or purchase,
all sqeezes into 18 lines.

this follows the rules for the 20 Line Challenge, as no line
has more than 23 commands on it, and there's just 18 lines.

it also requires a media folder download, which is 190kb UNcompressed,
which is legal for the 20LC.
(it's only 54k as a zip)

The vast majority of images for this game were taken from a tileset
made available by David Gervais, known here for The Artist's Challenge thread,
http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=67876&b=1
and to the "real" game industry for many years.

The rest of the images are from other public-domain sources.

Play it up, tell me what you think, and how far you get!

Ok that is the most addictive 20-liner I've ever played! I got up to level 4 before I had to quit and get on with some work.. but it was superb

Great stuff!

thanks everyone!
just to let you know, it automatically saves your progress,
and so if you just hit [L]oad at start-up,
it will put you back at the start of the highest level you've reached.

That's an insane use of 20 lines!

But all your 20-liners are like that, completely unfathomable as to how you manage it.

Wow. I must say, for a small game, supprisingly addictive. I have game maps from a game I worked on long ago... like 1988 to be exact, and you've inspired me to resurrect that game and redo it!

Oh, and I'm on level 7 now!

I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do. ~Hal-9000

i don't know...
sounds to me like you might have the media in the wrong place.

take out your set dir, and then change
a$="RPGmed/"+str$(t)+".bmp"
TO
a$=str$(t)+".bmp"
maybe that will help with wherever you have the media.
it loads all the bmp's as a series of numbers.
cuts down on lines considerably.

what it actually NEEDs is to have all the media in a file called
RPGmed that is INSIDE your temp directory,
or wherever you're running the code from...

it's nice that everyone is so into this.
i wonder if any has made it to the end yet?

good luck,
bob

I simply can't get onto your media for your famous 20-liners, IBOL. Dunno, but p'raps its because I'm not out of forum probation yet. Maybe somebody might mail the media on: lengmark@brg19.at. But don't bother if you don't mind.

P.S.: It says "Server connection has been set back". Anybody help or advise me anyhow?

Wherever you plan to go,
it's the next step you never know.
