5 DAYS TO GO: pygame.draw challenge

<http://media.pyweek.or g/static/pygame.draw-0606.html>

THE CHALLENGE:

Create a game in up to 64kbytes of source code using only pygame (and python
stdlib). No additional libraries, no external files (even ones loaded from
a network). That means no PyOpenGL, no PNGs, no OGGs, etc.

Feel free to jump on IRC @ freenode.net channel #pyweek. I hope to have a
wiki up soon.
THE DEADLINE:

Start as soon as you read this announcement.

Human-readable, Linux-compatible, single .py file entries must be received
by ri*****@pyweek. org before midnight on the 25th of June, 2006. That's
Australian Eastern Standard Time, which is UTC +10.

Multiple entries are allowed. Teams are allowed. Monkeys are allowed!
Ponies, sadly, are not allowed.

THE RESULTS:

All entries will be posted to a page on the http://www.pyweek.org/ website.

Entry gameplay instructions and license must be included in the source or in
the game itself.

I will probably choose one of the entries as my favourite, and declare this
in various obscure fora and private email messages. No other mention of
rankings or favourites will be made.
THANKS:

Thanks to Phil Hassey for the challenge inspiration!

I've recently begun to teach myself pygame by making a bunch of small toys. My current toy is cellular automata displayer and I've gotten a bit stuck on the displaying bit. (If automata isn't the plural of automaton please forgive me.) The current automata are only binary and are calculated using 2D Numeric arrays. It had been my assumption that once the automata was calculated I could then multiply the entire array by 255 to get a nice...

Hi all, I am writing a snake game, but all is not going well... Two problems here. First of all, the little circles I use for my sprite images only show up as quadrants. Second of all, only the Head sprite for my snake shows up at all. Why? Here are the class definitions: ! /usr/bin/python

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Dear forum friends, With the development of smart home technology, a variety of wireless communication protocols have appeared on the market, such as Zigbee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc. Each protocol has its own unique characteristics and advantages, but as a user who is planning to build a smart home system, I am a bit confused by the choice of these technologies.

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
