Apple II Game Tournament – Lit’l Red Bug and Flapple Bird

Jul 16, 2015 @ 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Organized by Michael Sternberg & Dagen Brock.

There will be two games in this year’s tournament:

1) Dagen Brock’s “Flapple Bird”

“Flapple Bird” is the lo-res masterpiece created by Kansasfest attendee, Dagen. Each contestant will play a minimum of three rounds, retaining their highest score.

2) Bob Bishop’s “Lit’l Red Bug”

Contestants will play the game, “Lit’l Red Bug”, created by Bob Bishop and published as a type-in program in the January 1981 issue of Creative Computing (pp.128-131). Game paddles will be used as input: one for steering and one for throttle. All participants play one round. The players in the top-scoring half go onto the next round, continuing until a round of two players meet to decide the champion. The initial order of players will be determined by a seed round where players submit a single-round score individually. The highest-seeded player will go last.
