FROGGER: (A) jumps
PUTT-GOLF: (B) hits ball towards cursor
ALL FOUR GAMES PLAY SIMULTANEOUSLY!!!
GAME ENDS when time expires
TOTAL SCORE = Total of all games x Bonus
BONUS = number of non-zero games
i.e., if 2 games scored then total score gets x2 bonus

Ok, Lt. Cmdr. Data, I’m checking you for a charging port or MagSafe connector or something. Not only can u code these tiny masterpieces like a Swiss watchmaker.... but you probably can play all four at the same time and do pretty well, can’t you? This is like fourth grade all over again, going to a new school for the gifted thinking I knew my stuff, and suddenly being surrounded by far superior minds.
But I love it. This program. And this community. I suck so bad at these games, I may have to hack it to just start out with 2 at a time and work my way up hehe 😜

Thanks for the fun compliment :D and yes, this community IS a fun place :)
I recommend doing the frog until you get a few points, then stop and leave it alone... if you do play it again, never risk dropping the score to zero...
And, after some practice, i can actually almost play the top 2 games pretty well... it takes anticipating where the ball will go, and getting the paddles set ahead of the ball... then tweak their positions at the last second... in the event that both need tweaking at the same time, get the pong one set and let the brick on miss, as its easier to build up points on the brick game..
Then, the golf game STARTS each round with 5 pnts, then each stroke subtracts one point... it should be fairly easy to at least end with 5 points no mater how badly you play that game, and there is no pressure on that game

Cool ! I don't really get the golf one, but playing pong, block breaker and 🐸 at the same time is really fun

Golf isn't finished yet... sorry ....
Currently the cursor circles the ball at varying angles and distance to the ball... WHEN golf is finished, hitting (B) the ball will travel towards the direction of the cursor, the distance of the cursor to the balls initial position effects the distance the ball will travel..
Also, the red pointers simulate slope, so the ball will be slightly effected in the direction of the pointers...
But currently Golf is only half made...

It is perfectly acceptable to edit your copy to suit you, i do it often ;)
You can use SKIP1: SKIP2: etc with GOTO SKIP1, etc, to choose or bypass any game u want ...
Also, each game has its own adjustable speed, and these will NOT effect the other game speeds...
Each game has its own numbered speed control variables... for PONG
WAIT0=(WAIT0+1) MOD 4
IF WAIT0=0 THEN
Change MOD 4 to MOD 3 to speed it up.. change to MOD 5 to slow it down...
As each game has its own speed control, just tweak each MOD # to a speed you prefer... slower speeds may be easier, but it can slow down your ability to add points... also, especially for PONG, a faster speed may cause you to overshoot and miss more often...
I recommend adjusting one game a little at a time, and test carefully... keeping the settings you like best :D

My high score on the bonus method is 444...
Can anyone beat that :)
(Hint, i scored 1 point on frogger, left golf alone, and then played both PONG and BRICK)

Thanks :) ... lots of practice from original lowres in that one ;)
