Rogue Golfing

2014-01-11 12:26:06

Doing some JS golfing (Link) during some kind of "Roguelike phase" comeback mostly because of Hack, Slash, Loot (Link) - a really accessible Roguelike I like very much.

Presenting Roguepuzzle! Try to swap letters in the labyrinth in order to WIN :) Use arrows keys to move. 192 bytes.

(onkeydown=function(e){x=40-e.which,(j=m[n=p-(x\%2?x-2:x*7-7)])&&j!="#"&&(m[p]=[j,m[p=n]="@"][0]),document.body.innerHTML="<pre>"+m.join("")})(p=17,m=" #####\n##.N.#\n#W.@I#\n######".split(""))

Want to make your own stages? Here you are a sightly longer version. 197 bytes (stage data excluded).

m=" #####\n##.N.#\n#W.@I#\n######";

Le regole del gioco

2013-10-20 09:46:20

A tris s'impara presto a giocare.
Due vicini di banco scelgono un simbolo tra croce e cerchio e lo dispongono a turno in una griglia 3X3. Chi allinea in orizzontale o diagonale 3 dei propri simboli vince.
Sulla carta la posizione centrale permette un maggior numero di condizioni di vittoria (due diagonali, una verticale ed una orizzontale) e, dopo poco tempo, diventa la posizione preferita dove giocare la prima mossa.
Col tempo, pero', si scopre che - se giocato con una particolare strategia - il tris non offre alcuna sfida: e' possibile, considerando alcuni pattern base di disposizione dei simboli, vincere sempre o pareggiare.
Per semplicita', nel linguaggio comune, queste tre considerazioni vengono identificate con la parola regole.
La prima e' una regola del gioco che, se violata, invalida la partita rendendola nulla e, se seguita, ne ufficializza l'esito.
La seconda e' una regola di buon senso che, se violata, riduce il numero di condizioni di vittoria e, se seguita, ne aumenta le probabilita' ma non l'assicura.
La terza e' una regola vincente che, se violata, riduce il numero di condizioni di vittoria ma, se seguita, assicura in ogni caso che non si raggiunga la condizione di perdita.
Nel corso della vita ci si confronta con centinaia di regole e le circostanze spesso non ci concedono il tempo di capire di quali tipologie siano: a volte ci si ritrova a violare le regole del gioco, rendendo vano tutto cio' che si e' costruito, a volte si crede di seguire una regola vincente ed invece e' solo una modesta regola di buon senso che non assicura nulla ed a volte s'incontrano vincenti in ogni caso che si spacciano strateghi di valore, che hanno solo scoperto dove il gioco sia rotto e che hanno tutto l'interesse nel mantenere il vantaggioso status quo.
Il saper riconoscere con quali di queste regole ci si stia confrontando e' vitale e tale coscienza la si raggiunge soltanto coltivando un personale e sensibile senso analitico e critico, che richiede cosi' tanto tempo per svilupparsi da poter coprire soltanto uno o pochi dei mille mondi regolati e mutevoli della vita.
Il mio contributo? Per quello che ho potuto valutare nella mia vita non esiste una regola vincente che regoli il senso critico. E, fortunatamente, nemmeno una regola del gioco. Esistono solo regole di buon senso e c'e' soltanto un altro mondo estremamente affine a questa situazione: il percorso per la ricerca del proprio senso critico in un particolare ambito coincide con quello della ricerca artistica. Siate, quindi, artisti nel vostro campo.
Sopratutto voi, nel mondo dell'IT.

Lazy Jones Pocket

2013-06-05 20:37:50

Ahh... Blast from the past. Just retrived a Lazy Jones (Link) remake I've made in 2001 and not-so-originally called Lazy Jones Pocket.

No audio but you can sing the song by yourself for added retro feel

Just Windows binary and no Delphi sources but it works surprisingly well under Wine. Fire button is space. Download here: (Link)

About me

I'm Francesco and I should be 44 years old now. Should be because this age is calculated by three lines of code and I could be dead now and this code can run forever. Never mind. I love computers and computer programming. I play videogames since the first day of the Atari age in Italy and I love them when are made by people. And this happens quite often, since there isn't - when I'm writing these lines - a machine which programs itself at this level of complexity - however should be interesting. How can be a self-programmed videogame? Something like Nethack? I love drawing manga, opensource and everything else is indie and made with love. Oh, I also love alive things. Bianca. But, seriously, we are in a world where machines sings that are Still Alive, so we can love everything. I also love friends. I've just a few of these little things and most of them are just chat contatcts. Who cares? Computers are made by people, used by people and transfer data made by people (eventually formatted to justified text by machines) so I'm (we're - as human) everywhere. And I love writing fuzzy things about technology, friends and me, if is alive. And I just love things? No. I hate the half of the things I've not listed here. If this was a classic personal blog of some frustrated teenager I should put you in the bad half. Cheese. You probably are in the good one - according my site stats.
