Hello everyone!

I hope you don't mind me opening a topic for round 2 of the competition, not to clutter the original post which I think should be about round 1 entries, announcing winners, post-results comments, etc. For round 1 participants you can vote here: http://games.freebasic.net/forum/index.php?topic=626.0

To remind everyone on the rules:
* the entry must reference FreeBASIC in some way, the FreeBASIC community, or its members (it can be more or less related to gameplay, a backdrop, a vague theme, you can toy with the horse mascot for example, make a cyberpunk RPG where you hack using FB, you name it, …)
* the entry must be compiled in FreeBASIC
* source code must be provided with the entry
* all libraries wrapped for FreeBASIC are allowed (FBgfx, GL2D, OpenGL, SDL, ...)
* the competition entries must be submitted via email or in this thread before the 29th of April 2019, 18:00 GMT (EXTENDED!)
* the winner will receive 300 $ cash prize paid via PayPal or Bitcoin or Etherium; the runnerup will receive a 100 $ cash prize
* in case of donations during the course of the competition, prizes will be increased
* all entries will be evaluated by competition sponsors (those who forked their own cash), while one category will be based on community votes
* teams are allowed
* non-original work MUST be credited (music, graphics, story, ...)
* to be eligible for round 2, you must have not (or any team member) actively participated in round 1

Once more, if you are developing for round 2, be so kind to share few words about your work and what we can expect.

I am participating in Round 2 here is my Work In Progress (WIP)
https://github.com/gothon/FBPoL
There are some prebuilt executables in the Bin subfolder.



Currently there is not much you can do as I need to work more on the game engine and the player programing has no front end!  However you can zoom & rotate the orthogonally rendered Voxel scenery.  Does anyone see that block of code printed in the console?  That is not my program, that is YOUR program.  As PlayerN you are the developer of software that can be used to control these Robots.
Code: [Select]
BotGo 2, "", (MultiKey(75) - MultiKey(77)), 0, (MultiKey(72) - MultiKey(80))
Hint, there are some enum constants used here that are displayed numerically:

BotMoveTo = 2
SC_LEFT = 75
SC_RIGHT = 77
SC_UP = 72
SC_DOWN = 80

'ToDo: Make Implementation & Write Documentation
Sub BotGo (Action As Integer = BotMoveTo, Target As String = "", X As Integer = 0, Y As Integer = 0, Z As Integer = 0)

Some additional keys to control the main program:
 - Press Esc to exit
 - Press Alt+'~' to cycle window size (eventually you will get a screen sized window, and if you have multiple monitors it will eventually cover all monitors!)

FXG861, very nice work on that entry. Got canned two times at level 3, though. Time limit seems to be the biggest obstacle so far.

How did you generate the female voice? Nice stuff.

Lachie, Thank you for your nice comment.

For the voice, i am using a plugin that use the Windows Voice System

You should practice more with the game because the real challenge start after Level 4   ;)

A Hint: Keep Bounty for Next Level

Since the Closure date is soon but not there yet, i decided to make a little adjustment in my Game.

So i increase "a little bit" the life time of each level.

I don't want the game difficulty to be judge mainly on a timer limit.

Please save the "Freebasic World" and achieve all 8 levels.    ;)
