Fake text mode Snake on Itch.io
Nice game! I got to 354 points!
But what do you mean by fake text mode?
It's regular haxeflixel. Each character is represented by two tilemaps, one for the background color, and the foreground characters. So I took code page 437 (like you see in dos or dosbox), and modified it a bit (the characters are 10x15 instead of 9x16 or something else). Also had to be a bit tricky because haxe doesn't deal with characters, and worse yet, they deal with UTF8 strings. I have 256 characters of the ascii + extended sets, which is put into a string. Since I can't get the asciii character codes (to index the characters in the tilemap), I have to get their utf char codes, put them into an array with the index being the ascii code. So one character may have a code of 9621 (or something like that), and then I assign it to index say 178 which is equivalent to whatever 178 is in ascii.
Anyways it's just a bunch of stuff where I can write text mode text into a regular haxeflixel sprite.
