The Ultimate Guide To Text Games

So Hello and I’m going to teach you how to make text games. You don’t know what text games are? I will explain later.

You Dare Not Edit My Wiki.

Thanks @Captain-Gim for the line.

Let’s start.

What We Need To Know For The Text Game.

What text games are.

Text games are games that can be represented with only text, and don’t require detailed visual graphics to still work. Text games include things like Rock-Paper-Scissors, or Guess The Number, both of which don’t require any fancy graphics or feature any complex gameplay mechanics.

Example of Text games.
  1. Rock paper scissors.
  2. Treasure Hunt
  3. Atari Breakout
  4. Guess The Number

Treasure Hunt. Let’s search for some Treasure.

Making The Treasure.

Start By Making A 7X7 of text that looks like a X Emoji.

Collecting the Treasurer.

Put a button like this.

Now Put all of these buttons where the treasure isn’t there.


Now put coordinates.

Now that you put the coordinates let’s make the button for the treasure.
Here’s how it should look.


Now put a pop up that says.

Why is this both TUG and a MOON guide?
TUG means The ultimate guide, adding “MOON” suggests that there are others. Pick one or the other, it makes more sense.

I like using MOOn in the name of my guides.

Okay Il take the MOOn part out.

why is it a wiki if youre not supposed to edit it?? genuine question i thought the whole point of wikis is theyre community built. unless im tone deaf and that parts a joke.

I’m gonna propose a different definition for the text games:

Text games are games that can be represented with only text, and don’t require detailed visual graphics to still work. Text games include things like Rock-Paper-Scissors, or Guess The Number, both of which don’t require any fancy graphics or feature any complex gameplay mechanics.

Well I was looking at text game and that what I got.

oh and were talking about different type of text game.

Uhmmm i think cuz moon wanted to be able to edit this multiple times without haveing an “edit time limit”

The ball device doesn’t support the ability to have a downwards gravity, as far as I know. Also, if I remember correctly, the ball in atari breakout does not have any gravity, and simply bounces around at a constant speed. I guess the best way to make this would be to give the ball no friction, or, make a text display and program the game on that.
