Welcome to Ping's Space War!
Use the arrow keys to move your space ship, X to fire and Z + arrow keys to aim your space ship.
@einar-st, you have just recreated one of the absolute first games I made on the TRS-80 lore ago.
>=- 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
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.
