MAKE5 Board clearing puzzle
« on: January 10, 2021, 08:10:35 PM »
Here's a simple little puzzle game made on a lazy afternoon.  It's a close copy of one I was playing online.  You arrange the big colored balls in a row (5 or more) to erase them.  More balls appear randomly on the board.  Keep clearing the balls to make space on the board.  See how high a score you can get before the board gets full.

EDIT: Updated the colors and Game Over box.

Code: QB64: [Select]

Hi Dav.. The balls wouldn't erase for me. Is it a complete block of 25 large balls (ie 5 x 5) or does just a row a/o column of 5 large balls cause it to erase?

They weren't erasing for me either until I realized might be difference between yellow and green. ;-))

You have make a line of 5 or more balls of the same color to erase them.

Too close for detecting differences specially right after I get up:

Yeah, I think I should adjust the colors again - on my old laptop it's sometimes hard to tell close colors apart unless I'm viewing the screen at the perfect angle.

Thanks Dav - Works great. Not sure where my mind was - so obvious now that the game called for 5 of the same color. Sometimes the obvious is so hard to spot.

@Dav  and surely you meant to change the colors in 9PM edit?

Here is distinctive set:
Code: QB64: [Select]
  1.                     CASE IS = 1: r = 255: g = 64: b = 64 'red
  2.                     CASE IS = 2: r = 0: g = 128: b = 0 'green
  3.                     CASE IS = 3: r = 64: g = 64: b = 255 'blue
  4.                     CASE IS = 4: r = 255: g = 255: b = 0 'yellow
  5.                     CASE IS = 5: r = 255: g = 255: b = 255
  6.  

Hey Dav, if I set up 4 going horizontal and 4 vertical and then put the 5th for both where they meet, shouldn't that clear both, 9 pieces?

Green at the meeting place:

Those colors look perfect, @bplus. I edited the code and put them in.  Thanks! 

Yes, you are correct - the game should be set up to clear both of those, but I didn't get around to coding it in.  Made the same mistake with the 10x10 puzzle.  I will get working on it when I get back home tonight.

Edit: also, the original game i was playing only allowed pieces to move if they had a clear path. The only way i can figure to do that is adapt a floodfill routine i used for another puzzle.  I may do that.  I was reading about shortest path algos, but they are a bit beyond my understanding at the moment.

There are different kinds of paths:
Any path as long as it goes from A to B no matter how round about or a path that has to fit inside the rectangle that contains the 2 cells at corners (which makes sense to me for this game)?

Can you only move horizontally or vertically or allow diagonal?

I bet those little circles have the purpose to block your paths.

I was thinking this game reminds me of Click O' Mania again you had it by another crazy name some time ago and Tetris again and 10x10 :)


Anyway the image to remember in shortest pathfinding is to imagine an ever increasing square qrid around your start cell the first group represent the first step you can take, 4 or 8 neighbors depending on stepping rules the 2nd 1 cell larger on all sides is the second step... continue outward until the board is covered. For each cell in the new frame not stepped on yet you see where you can step to from there. You make a temp array and label all places you can visit in 1 step and then label all places where you can visit in 2 steps.... keep going until you hit your target cell or can't step anywhere else from where you've been. When you hit your target cell you backtrack 9, 8, 7, 6... 1, start.

Thanks you, @bplus.  I'll chew on that a while.  And thanks for the link - I had forgotten about that one.  (the original game only allow Hor/vert, not diag).

Back home.  Will get cracking on it...
