Did you see break-dancing will be in the 2024 Olympics?
I did not, incredible
I have this vision of a bunch of 50-year olds with pony-tails reliving the '80s.
Sounds like an episode of Futurama!
Next will be competition Yo-Yo’s.
You will have to compete with those classic Coke / Fanta / Sprite ones from the '80s.
I wonder in the break-dancing if you can compete in teams and have a real uprock competition.
At this rate they’ll be adding Irish Martial arts, wrasslin and bowls next.
This is a particularly fun read:
Olympic kite flying anyone? Pigeon racing maybe?
How about ‘strange spellings of Olypics’?
My keyboard probably needs cleaning again.
You do know you can edit the title though, right?
It would only have taken two clicks and a single keypress to rectify.
Yeah … but where’s the fun in that?
I’m already surprised when they introduced “mountain triathlon”. Now the bike manufacturers are going to be stretching their minds to build carbon-fiber mountain bikes so the sportsmen (and sportswomen) can carry them uphill faster
Perhaps they already rolled a few out to the road.
Arduboy Jam of unofficial/wacky Olympic sports anyone?
That could be cool.
I am not so sure how to do the breakdancing game though.
Really? That will be interesting to see.
A rhythm game would work. (E.g. Arrows flying across the screen.)
Failing that, there’s that dancing plant creature game I mentioned a while back. (I forgot the name again, so clearly it’s not a very memorable title…)
Could do a quick-time style game, where pairs of button combinations make different breakdancing moves, and a sequence is shown that the player has to input before a timer is up. More button combinations are added as you progress to increase the difficulty, and the timer can be decreased as well for a harder challenge.
I think I should do it on a Arduboy some time later. The entire “i hate this game”, you know. Or what that resembles it.
Oh yeah, that could work! The graphics would need to be a looot better than that though.
I’d never heard of this game before.
It reminds me a bit of The Impossible Quiz (an old Flash game from the golden era of Flash games - the late 00s).
Since it’s essentially a collection of minigames, I don’t think you’d fit many minigames into a single
.hex. To be able to have lots of minigames I think you’d have to make use of the FX chip and some sort of bytecode-based scripting language.
What I actually meant by ‘arrows flying across the screen’ was something like Dance Dance Revolution.
That could be fun! I’ve seen a couple games like that for arduboy from a while ago, BiriBiriBeat and DDRBoy
Neither had I.
One of my friends were watching some “interesting” things on Youtube and so I heard of it.
And, think it was 2019 summer sale (discounts are crazy), I used some leftover $ in Steam and purchased it.
(I could ask for refund since this “software” have no copyright protection, but I don’t regret this … $2, I think.)
I thought the graphics are quite okay. It’s their style.
I might, or I might not.
I probably won’t fit a lot, but there only need to be that much for it to be compelling.
