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!</p> <img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="/media/38844/qpong p8_0.gif" alt="" /> <p>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. </p> <h2>Controls</h2> <ul> <li> <p>W, A, S, D: move cursor </p> </li> <li> <p>Z: Place/remove Hadamard gate </p> </li> <li>X: Place/remove X gate</li> </ul> <h2>Links</h2> <p>Please read my blog post for details about the game and everything about quantum computers!</p> <ul> <li> <a href=""></a></li> <li>Blog post: <a href=""></a></li> <li>Tweet thread: <a href=""></a></li> <li>Source code: <a href=""></a></li> </ul> <p>If you are interested in make quantum games like QPong, please join us in the upcoming <a href="">IndiQ Quantum Game Jam</a> (Oct 3&ndash;6 2020) , held in conjunction with one of the largest online game jam LDJAM47.</p> Mon, 28 Sep 2020 18:04:50 UTC
