Cactus Simulator

I hit 500 cycles recently. YAY, thanks!! Although I probably have about 50 cycles in ask questions where they haven’t selected my answer as the answer after admitting that it was the answer to their question :(

So here is a 500 cycle special!


`

How to play:

All instructions are explained in the game, but I’ll give you an overview anyway:

  • You are given a choice of what cactus you would like to be. All are found in The Cactapedia
  • You are then given an overview of your chosen cactus
  • Now the actual simulator starts. You (as you are told) make your decisions monthly. You can either: increase root length, stem height or number of spines.
  • You have to balance your decisions so that none of your stats fall to 0 (you die if they do).
  • You need to survive for 5 years (60 months)

Thanks to @xolyon for allowing me to use a function that they made which that the text can be printed letter by letter.
Also, for their colour codes tutorial which allows for colours with no imports, YAY!! :)


Have Fun, and if you do: don’t forget to upvote! :)

You should add the random chance of your cactus being dug up because of construction. Then you would instantly lose the game. And then the chances of it being relocated.

@ike_fite that seems really unfair and unlucky, perhaps if the location was an option (e.g risky location high water and sunlight)
as this is good for balance

@xolyon it would be very (I mean VERY) low like one in 100 or something.

@ike_fite on a relative scale of death those are high chances , (1/100 chance of dying in a car accident) but on a game this size i thnk it suits

@xolyon I get what you're saying. You will drive more than 100 times in your lifetime. 1/100 basically means you are bound to die in a car accident. I probably should have thought that through more.
