Tenliner Challenge - #0 Gokivader

Even though fukenko is part of the jury for the Tenliner challenge, his enthusiasm for this challenge was so great that he couldn't help himself and also created a tenliner. Of course, since he's part of the jury, his entry won't participate for the prizes and is only intended for your enjoyment and as a reference.

Fukenko created an MSX version of the PC-6001 action game Gokivader, porting it and condensing the original source to 10 lines of MSX-BASIC and even adding extra difficulty levels. The aim of Gokivader is to stop all Gokiburi's (cockroaches) from invading planet R800. The game can be played with the F1-F5 keys, and it runs on any MSX1 or higher with 8kB of RAM.

A nice and difficult game (keep pressing the wrong F-keys Wink However, I'm not so sure this program should be seen as a "reference", since it uses machine language to scroll the screen. I really like that all other entries have managed to do great things without resorting to machine language and entry #1, retromania, shows that you can do a downward vertical scroll just fine with BASIC only... Just my 2p.

Kudos for rewriting the scroll without using machine language! And it still plays just as nice Smile
