NEED a basic game idea that must follow certain requirements. Details are inside post

  1. Apr 28, 2012 #1
    I need an idea for a simple game in basic (i was told it cant be battleship for some reason) to program. I do not want whoever reads this post to give me the coding for it i am just looking for ideas. It must use loops, IF-THENs, and inputs and those 3 things are the only things it needs to have. I have been trying to think of an idea for a SIMPLE game to code but i am not very creative.

    PLEASE RESPOND ASAP PLEASE!!!

    Tic tac toe.

    That being said,

    10 PRINT "You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike"
    is in Basic, isnt' it?

    Some of the more modern variants of Basic dispense with the line numbers.

    I know. I was trying to be as basic as possible.

    Do an RPG game that is text based. Based on the user response you send them a corresponding text line back.

    Requires a huge list of text of possible responses and the ability to compare strings

    Can you go recursive in simple basic? If so, you can make the computer a very strong opponent in tic tac toe.

    NIM might be a good simple game to try.

    Every recursive algorithm can be converted to an iterative one, so in general it doesn't matter whether the language allows recursion or not.
