gadlor says ...

great fun! not very innovate, though.

Cosmologicon says ...

conio.h isn't portable!

Problem Machine says ...

How do I beat the grue?

Kimau says ...

Bravo for the best joke entry I've seen so far.

fydo says ...

Nice work, haha. ;)

nilsf says ...

As Cosmologicon mentioned conio.h isn't portable, however I was able to compile it mentally and play it using only my mind!
But I still lost. Maybe I'll try to beat it again later.

Green Point says ...

The shortest game...

Eckolin says ...

Too hard for me.

badlydrawnrod says ...

Hmmmm. I wonder why I liked it so much. I'm tempted to backport it to TRS-80 Level II BASIC.

Like the humour.

Entar says ...

Hehehehehe, ha ha, heheh.

mjau says ...

=)

Morre says ...

It would've been easier to appreciate the joke if you'd actually seen the message - I thought it just crashed on me, since I didn't run it from the command prompt, and the program exited straight after the loss message.

I'm giving you a few points in "Community" for blogging even though you're not really entering. :)

gimblll says ...

Oh, I get it! It's a puzzle game, you have to modify the source to win? :)

philomory says ...

Hilarious. It's not a very good game, though, is it? ;)

noonat says ...

I laughed out loud. TWICE.

Almost says ...

Heh

Endurion says ...

Can you post a walkthrough?

I'm stuck at the second grue ;)

ondrew says ...

The game is fun, but the source code is funnier :). Probably first time in this compo!

Jonny D says ...

The atmosphere was ruined because my console is white instead of black...

Jacob says ...

Excellent use of the hex constant 0x100000.
One of the best uses I have encountered.

Keep up the good work!

mklee says ...
