A rough and ready "Simon Says" game I hacked together in a few hours. Use the arrow key to play the appropriate triangles and follow the sequence. What high score can you get?

I am inordinately proud of the code that draws the triangles as I got it right first time.

nice. I like the dithered fade-in effect.

Thanks, the dithering patterns are taken from the dithering post in the Pixel Joint basics thread.


I thought about doing it programmatically (i.e keeping the base colour and then writing directly to video memory to fade in the highlight) but in the end I just drew the 6 tiles per colour I needed as easier to do than working out the code.

Fun! Perhaps one comment though: I was kinda confused by the up arrow being the lowest note and the down arrow being the highest note.

That's funny, the note-to-position thing is something I didn't think about that much but the current positions 'sound' right to me but now you've mentioned the up/down dichotomy it's thrown me into a confusion of possible arrangements I could do
