Eller's Megamaze

Post by GCHarder »

A Christmas Present for the group.

Based on the program...

viewtopic.php?p=19688#p19688

This version uses 128x96 resolution so it requires 32K Hires capable RAM, WRX mode.

A hardware demo video is here...

A 256x192 version would also be possible but I think it would be too hard on the eyes!

Merry Christmas;

Greg

Re: Eller's Endless Maze

Post by GCHarder »

Hi All;

Because Eller's Maze is created one line at a time and that line is not dependent on the previous line or the next it means that an endless maze can be created, see the enclosed txt file for more info. This program does that, it asks you to enter the number of lines for the maze. It will print a hard copy of the maze for you if you want to solve it, this is probably best done in an emulator which supports printer output.

Enjoy;

Greg

Looks like a similar algorithm to the one I used for my 3D Skeleton Maze game.

Looks very good. Nice work.

This could be used to recreate the Atari 8 bit game Diggerbonk. It was a fun little game that could be worth doing a ZX81 version of.
