Some simple command line games created with Lisp, so that I would have some hands-on experience writing my own, since Land of Lisp is mostly about reading Barski's Lisp.
I got the ideas for these games from this scan of an 80s game magazine.
- Diamonds Prints out a series of diamonds
- Dice Rolls dice, tracking results, and displaying the distribution
- hilo The computer guesses a number in 1..100, you have 6 tries to guess it
- literature-quiz You can put problems into it, it will then quiz you to see whether you know the answers
- russian-roulette There's a 5 in 6 chance you'll survive the round. You get 10 rounds :P
$ clisp diamonds.lisp
$ clisp dice.lisp
$ clisp hilo.lisp
$ clisp quiz.lisp
$ clisp russian-roulette.lisp
This code is unmaintained.
If you do something interesting with it, let me know so I can be happy.
