I'd like to start a series of challenges for http://box-256.com/ starting with the first challenge, “BIG SQUARE II”. After this one I'll add another for "CHECKERBOARD" and so on.
- Complete the BIG SQAURE II challenge in the Box-256 emulator (either on the website or download the program if you run Windows)
- Post back here a screenshot of your working answer
- You MUST include the code in plain text so that others can easily copy and very it’s operation.
The winner will be the least amount of instructions used (just the instruction calls, either by name or opcode, the arguments to them are not counted as JMP takes one argument but MOD can take three).
I think in the future contests we can add some additional bonus points for use of coding tricks and we could include the argument count too. I wanted to start basic to get the ball rolling.
I think we should put a stake in the ground and say two weeks from today we announce the winner(s, there maybe be mutliple entries with the same instruction count).
