Hi everyone!
I have done a classic 2d Space shoot-em-up in 20 lines. Check out the counting of commands, it's a maximum of 25 commands x line! (If not so please tell me, I can cut something else).
Starscape, aliens firing, 3 parallax scrolling levels of stars, sound and music all included in 197k of Unzipped media and source.
Try out from the download button here at your right/bottom.
Tested OK on DBPRO Trial 1.05.
Alex



I hope code is within the 20 lines rules, otherwise tell me!

Jesus... That's impressive. You wouldn't have thought it was possible to do that in 20 lines. It fitted in 20 fine on my comp, though it did run a bit fast. Maybe you want to code HL3 in under a page next?

Yes, sir, but sir is not a rabbit, is sir?

Thanks for positive comments.
@KLU 007: I code from the age of 10 (now I'm 25) when I used my uncle's C64 first in Basic and then in Assembly. After that I started coding in C on PCs. This is my second work in DB(THE tool for game development) after the 3D Marble Run, by now I'm developing a full version of this shoot'em up (much more than 20 lines).
Please could a moderator or long time DB coder tell me if my source is without any doubt within the 20 lines rules? I counted no more than 25 commands for line. Thanks.

No problem. You made a big work for me, checking command counts for line.
