Today is Game Boy's 30th anniversary in Europe. To celebrate, I ported the first ever game I made, QPong to PICO-8 on GameShell which looks very similar to a Game Boy. This is the closest to making a GB game without doing it the hard way using C or Assembly!
QPong is a quantum version of the classic Pong. In this game, you need to construct a quantum circuit to control the paddle position. Spooky quantum phenomena like superposition and wave function collapse show up in the game if you place H gates on the circuit.
W, A, S, D: move cursor
Z: Place/remove Hadamard gate
- X: Place/remove X gate
Please read my blog post for details about the game and everything about quantum computers!
