Go Space Mines
Command Line Space Mines Simulator Game ported from BASIC to Gogit
This is a port to Go of a BASIC strategy/management game called Space Mines. The BASIC code was originally published in 1982 in an Usborne book titled Computer spacegames. In the same year the game was released on tape for the ZX Spectrum 16K, click here for more information and a download link to the Spectrum tape image.
go build and then execute, you will be presented with output like so:
Year 1 There are 47 people in the colony You have 4 mines and $ 799 Satisfaction Factor 1 Your mines produced 47 tons each Ore in store: 188 tons Selling: Ore selling price: $ 9 /ton Mine selling price: $ 3487 /mine How much ore to sell? 188 How many mines to sell? 1 You have $ 5978 Buying How much to spend on food? (Appr. $100 EA.) 2000 How many more mines to buy? 0
The aim of the game is to survive 10 years in office; the original printed source contains variables for total amount of food and food price. However, it doesn't actually use them.
I have included scanned copies of the original source for page 24 and page 25 of the book this game was published in.
