So, this is my contest entry: Whack-A-Color for the CSE
It shows you random color to look for, and then shows a 3x3 screen of different color squares. You must "hit" the square that is the color shown before the game starts. To hit the color, you will use the numpad. eg: if the color is on the top right, hit the [7]. For every color you "hit" you get one point.

Oh yeah, and there is a timer. :D

Scoring: The scores are displayed once the timer runs out, they are color coded, so RED<=5 points and so on.



The top right is the color to hit, and the bottom right is your score. Scoring is as follows:

BLUE    =    5
GREEN   =  10
ORANGE = 15
RED     =     20
Yellow    =   25
PURPLE =  30

That was definitively a fun entry. It gets quite hard at one point since you have to react quite fast while dealing with squares changing colors randomly. It also runs somewhat fast. For future improvements, I would recommend taking full advantage of the UpdateLCD commands to have everything be drawn in the non-visible screen area until the very last square. That would get rid of all flicker. :)

Thanks!
For some reason, it when I tried to fix the flickering, it left me with a white screen. I might have switched over before drawing. Whatever :)

I actually am thinking about adding more scores, like up to 40, because it wasn't that hard to beat, after you got the gist of the game.

That might be it. In any case if you ever need help on switching between GRAMs, post code in your topics then maybe I can help. It isn't too hard once you understand the concept, though.

As for higher scores that would be a nice idea, providing that BASIC speed doesn't prevent harder difficulty at higher levels.

Unicorn

I'll post when I decideto do that.  Thanks for the offer. And yesh higher highscres is definetly an option.
