700 Cycle Special
DynamicSquid (863)

This was way harder than I thought.

So for my 700 cycles special, I thought I'd making something like @CodingCactus 500 cycle special, but just with a little more story too it.

Well that was a mistake.

Turns out, text based games are not my thing, and this is probably the last time I make one. They're repetitive, and hard to test. I actually had to remove some parts cause it took too long.

Anyway, good news. 700 cycles!! At the start of the week, I only had 500, so thanks to all who upvoted my stuff!

Upcoming projects (in order):

  • Pacman (in 2 weeks, hopefully)
  • Space Invaders (2 weeks after Pacman)
  • My Own Run & Gun Game (2 weeks after Space Invaders)

Hmm... I like making arcade games! Might just do that next time instead of a text based game.

And I'll try to release something every week. If it's not one of those three arcade games, I'll figure something out.


Well, back to this game. It's about collected squids. You travel through different biomes collecting squids, and you can fight with them to. Buy bait from the shop if you run out, and explore new biomes to collect squids along the way.

Oh, and in the last biome, I turned all you guys into Squids (well, the ones who commented on this post at least). Uh... so, don't be surprised if you caught yourself.

Well, enjoy!

@Rithaquick Oh sweet! Glad you like it :)

btw u might need to make an 800 cycle special @DynamicSquid

DynamicSquid (863)

@Rithaquick oh lol :) well, I don't want to over do it. You see, my original plan was a 500 cycles special, but I got to 700 before I could finish it. The next one I'm doing will be a 1000 cycles special

I love how one of the damage things is

null pointer exception

But cool project! This is so much better then me trying to make one in java because I barely know java lol

DynamicSquid (863)

@NoelBryan Oh thanks! Glad you enjoy!

I tried to get to the 5th area so I could catch me but I ran out of time (had to do something else) :( @DynamicSquid

DynamicSquid (863)

@Codemonkey51 Aw... want to see what your squid's description is?

@Codemonkey51 I did too.. I eventually caught myself:

@DynamicSquid Np
I code in Python, but at school we learn C++ so I also learned a little C++ ;)

DynamicSquid (863)

@DannyIsCoding Oh really? That's cool. In my school we learn Java. It's sooo boring. Oh, and just a question, is your school coding class too easy for you?

DannyIsCoding (406)

@DynamicSquid Yes. I mean I like that I learn C++ beside Python, but we started the lessons like in March or so and we didn't even get to if else statements or functions or loops or anything like that.

DynamicSquid (863)

@DannyIsCoding Yeah, I find that many self taught students like us have a huge advantage in computer science classes

DannyIsCoding (406)

@DynamicSquid Yup. I wonder how the schools choose wich programming languege to teach.

I love it! And you added the Squid Squid! <3

johnstev111 (70)

@DynamicSquid It's impossible. You need the thirty squid type to progress into the open ocean, but there are only 25 squid types preceding it. Also, I can't seem to get the Average squid

DynamicSquid (863)

@johnstev111 You can catch multiple squid of the same type...

johnstev111 (70)

@DynamicSquid Yes I know... but you need thirty different types of squid to progress.

johnstev111 (70)

@DynamicSquid Weird... Because I had ~40 squid and it said i had only 24... I had 24 types

DynamicSquid (863)

@johnstev111 Oh, I see what's going on now. Thanks for pointing that out! It should be fixed now though. Thanks!

johnstev111 (70)

@DynamicSquid Also, thanks for adding the Fire squid and Stev squid!

johnstev111 (70)


Thank you for fixing the bug!

DynamicSquid (863)

@johnstev111 np! glad you caught yourself :)
