NEW:

The Bob Challenge!
Make a program involving Bob. It can be a 20 liner now, but it must be playable in some way and have some kind of story that others can add to/continue from.
===> This does NOT need to be a "text adventure"! It can be any type of game so long as it requires NO external media and involves Bob AND "You"!


Please state which version of DB you use as well.

I got 10 points and then Bob 'killed' me
Must get revenge on Bob

It's a fun little game if you want to amuse yourself for a couple of minutes.

Let the games begin.

So it is. The other one is neverending until you lose, and there's actually a point in playing (The score)

fun game for a 1 line text adventure. I modified it to guess automatically and got 250 points. It's pretty amazing that you can make a game in one line of code. One of the first programs I ever wrote was a neverending text adventure, but it was 3565 lines long.

woooooo hooooooooooo i finally got 10 points after like 20 tries...
lol funny and amusing for the absent-minded

For random guessing and control of the numbers in which you guess out of try this (sticking with 20 lines):


Note it is partially compressed as i hate compressing it, and i was making it fit.

That's hilarious! It seems like he kinda is caught by surprise and then he's like uhhh... 26? and then you get to kill bob. It could go on forever like that though. Here's the sequal to the sequal:

Bob's Revenge on Your Ghost



Feel free to make your own variation lol. It must be in 1 line though. Maybe next time Bob can have a relative!

The Return of Bob



[edit]
This is crazy... I got 40 points on the orignal in 1 try.
The odds of that are like 1:81

Yeah, the original can be tough. It's all luck.

@Code Dragon:
Wow 40 points! I must try to beat that!

In your new one it kinda steps out of the game. It's more of a story...

It was supposed to be a game, but I thought the print command word wraps, when I found that out I had to take out nearly all of the game elements to make room for the extra prints and stay within the 25 command per line limit.

@Xenocythe: Exactly.

@Code Dragon: Haha you're right it's almost exactly the same.

@Diggsey: Oh, and I think that that exceeds the 25 command limit.

Bob's Uber 1337 Zombie Ninja Warrior Zombie Clones Adventure


Its uncompressed, because I didn't feel like compressing it. Being 6 lines over 25, this one will fit in two lines instead of one. I was able to change its length from 37 lines to 31 though...

There are 6 outcomes, and this game isn't all luck; once you find out all the outcomes, you can find a way where you will win more. Using the best attacks, there is actually a pretty good chance you will win: 3:1.

And also, the zombie is faster than you. So if you both punch high (as an example), the zombie will kill you.

Cool. But, you forgot to end the game when all the million zombies die, but who's going to play that long anyway?

I was going to make a text adventure scripting engine that dissects strings and performs the correct actions, but it would have been to compilcated. If I did, it would allow extreamly huge text adventures in 1 line!

its a cool little game and all but i must say

one between 1 and 3 means it can only be 2 it can be 1 or 3 that would be between 0 and 4

and also you could easily add a little bit more like after you guessed his number
