X vs. O

Wumperdinkle Sniy


I'm making a new game for the Odyssey 2. This because I got real bored.


The title screens switch between a screen with x's and a screen with o's. First I plan to make a simple tic-tac-toe game as an Easter egg. You'll move the joystick to the desired space, and press ACTION to use the center square. I'm imagining something like the Tic-Tac-Toe game on the Channel F.

If you click on the link above and download the zip file, I've also included the code for the game. Which shows a lot of code crammed into less than 500 lines. I have about 1,300 bytes left in the starting bank for the tic-tac-toe game. I think I can pull it off (keep it all in the bank) if I make it a 2 player game.

So if a tic-tac-toe game is an Easter egg, what is the actual game? I don't know yet. But that's okay. I often start Odyssey 2 games without knowing what I want to do. One thing I learned by attempting a Legend of Zelda-type game using the letter Q (and another adventure game starring a lowercase i) is that it's not going to be terribly long. I need to think of something to engage the player for a while.
