A storm has hit a sea port and scrambled up all the shipping crates...
Use your crane to reassemble the crates in order, #0 to #99
It may take a few days to fix this mess, so your progress is automatically saved.
When you get them all sorted out, you will get a little party ;)
ARROWS move crane, (A) closes/grabs (B) lets go

"It may take a few days"
My time is 45:16 and that's with fooling around with the crane.

Wowzers! That is dedication! Myself i like quick little games to fill small gaps of time... by saving the game i can break the game down over a few days..
Thanks so much for playing the game, and the feedback :D

I am the sorting algorithm :D
SP4CEBAR 2022-08-15 13:56
Nooooo, 15 munutes in and I forgot to press "Save to my programs", so I pressed it to guarantee a save, but no, that quits it and discards the progress, I wanted to save it to tell you about box character 26 or somewhere near it that has a few pixels that stick out
SP4CEBAR 2022-08-15 14:22
54 has some extra pixels too
SP4CEBAR 2022-08-15 14:24
I've been staring at your lime-green ish screen for 25 more minutes, the blue "submit" and "attach" buttons look desaturated to my eyes now

Completed in 40:23
SP4CEBAR 2022-08-15 15:10
75 has an extra pixel too
SP4CEBAR 2022-08-15 15:30
I got 35:37 using a better sorting algorithm (with my brain)
This got me thinking: you could turn this into a really fun coding challenge:
You could make an API of subprograms to control the crane, and to sample container numbers (for example: sample 1 cell below the crane, or at specific coordinates)
Maybe some additional limitations would be fun
And a timer to be able to compare how well it did to other algorithms

Thanks for the pixel feedback, update fixed 'em
The re-editing of the number squares took more time than anything else... i think collectively i spent less than 30 minutes on the actual code...
You are welcome, and encouraged, to take this and remix it anyway you want to :D this was more just a fun challenge to make what i envisioned... i wont spill the beans on what i "may" use this for in the future, esp. since i may never get around to it...
but as is, it is just a raw concept that works, so feel free to tinker, repurpose, etc, whatever you envision ;)
SP4CEBAR 2022-08-15 20:54
Cool, good luck
Maybe you should've made a program to do the writing, I'm guilty of that too, I wrote 256 binary patterns by hand, those are really easy to generate in a program, but I didn't want to do character encoding
SP4CEBAR 2022-08-15 21:06
54 also has an extra pixel
SP4CEBAR 2022-08-16 13:11
And 52 has one too
was8bit 2022-08-16 13:41
Thanky kindly :) my tired eyes missed those :)

BTW, to see the colors closer to as i see them, turn your night time setting to "ON" on your display... if you have that setting ... i always have my devices set on night time mode as i am usually in a darkish room or am outside at night when i use them...
SP4CEBAR 2022-08-16 20:06
Yeah, I have that mode, it's on right now
You're probably a big fan of dark-themed applications too
was8bit 2022-08-16 21:29
Yea.. ive used dark/night mode so much that normal mode annoys my eyes ;)
SP4CEBAR 2022-08-17 08:57
Same, the first thing I do when I download an application is search for the option to enable dark mode
