[On Castle Wolfenstein] Ok…maybe this one needs a little justification. A lot of people may have expected this to win. It was a fantastic script, don’t get me wrong! (“stop it! You are doing impossible things! What if reality find out?!” ;)) In particular, I thought the map showed exactly the sort of flair that would normally win. But we know you’re capable of this ;) you’ve set yourself too high a standard :P What can I say, it was a great script, but I’d be interested to see what else could be implemented - I liked the rockford entry for example for the many simultaneous actions.
For those unfamiliar with the title, Boulder Dash is a classic game from the 80’s. I used to play it a lot on my Atari 800XL when I was a kid. Since being hooked on programming, writing Boulder Dash clones (or derivatives) has become a habitual thing that I do when I get my hands on a new programming language. A friend (who incidentally is the author of BoulderCat) recently joked about this habit being my version of “Hello, world!”.
