Default I made a full functional text game

YAY!

I'm proud of making a text game.

http://members.optusnet.com.au/ksaho/Designs/game.zip

The source and exe are included. If anyone has anything to add or show me what I could do better and the like then please go ahead.

If you want to play with the source make sure you have a Microsoft C++ compiler if not then you can port it to another compiler by just changing void main(void) into int main(void) and make sure a return value is specificed.

I can't think of a story so maybe one of you guys can make one and just follow the same format under the play function as I have to maintain consistency unless you have a better way to do it.

What this game demonstrates:

Basic battle system

Random Battles

Random Monster statistics (2 monsters total)

Basic Inventory

Basic use of potions

Very Basic GUI

ALL CONSOLE!!!

The console is a win32 console environment so all you guys with 486s and whatnot will not be able to run it under DOS.

Default Congrats!

How long did you spend on it and what motivated ya? (I like programming so I could see just doing it to do it. )

That project itself taken about 20-30 minutes at most.

I just love coding in C++.

BTW: What did you think of the storyline?
