@einar-st, you have just recreated one of the absolute first games I made on the TRS-80 lore ago.

I used >=- and as -=< as rockets on each side of the screen that could move up and down vertically. They could not move horizontally though.

The keystrokes were q and z to move and a to fire. Your opponent was controlled by the computer.

The shot was just a long line of --- and when you hit your target it just said, -+=*=+- to show a sort of explosion.

But it worked ! I even remember my Dad taking the TRS-80 to Octoberfest and there I sat down to do both coding and show others the games I wrote and saved on audiocassette.

Good times. Gold star for the memories.

I think there is a bug:

  • Start the game and fly player 2's ship through player 1
  • Position player 2 in front of player 1
  • Player 1 can no longer shoot player 2

@phil, you're right! There was a typo in there. I fixed it. Thank you :)
