lc3-2048

An implementation of 2048 created using LC-3, an educational programming language.

Quick Start

To execute LC-3 programs, they must be assembled into an object file and loaded into a simulator. The tools necessary to do this can be found on McGraw Hill's website for the LC-3. The following instructions are for *nix operating systems, but the concepts are similar for Windows.

  1. Download or compile the lc3tools. If you're using Mac, you can easily install them via my Homebrew tap:

    $ brew tap rpendleton/homebrew-tap
    $ brew install lc3tools
    

    Alternatively, you can compile them yourself.

    $ unzip lc3tools_v12.zip
    $ cd lc3tools
    $ ./configure --installdir /path/to/install/dir
    $ make
    $ make install
    
  2. After you've installed the lc3tools, you need to download the project and assemble the object file. You can do this using lc3as.

    $ git clone https://github.com/rpendleton/lc3-2048.git
    $ cd lc3-2048
    $ lc3as 2048.asm
    
  3. Now that the object file is ready, all that's left is to load it into the simulator.

    $ lc3sim 2048.obj
    ...
    (lc3sim) c
    Control the game using WASD keys.
    Are you on an ANSI terminal (y/n)? y
    +--------------------------+
    |                          |
    |                          |
    |                          |
    |                     2    |
    |                          |
    |   2                      |
    |                          |
    |                          |
    |                          |
    +--------------------------+
    

    After starting the simulator and loading the object file, pressing c will start the program. The game takes advantage of ANSI terminal features, so if you're using a *nix operating system, make sure to press y when prompted. Otherwise, press n to avoid seeing garbage escape sequences.
