Weekly Rules/How to Enter
You have until Tuesday Night/Wednesday Morning 00:00 BST to submit your levels. ^ See Deadline Link! ^

Wed.Workshop is at SoCoder.co.nr. If you can read this, you're probably already there!

Stick your entry underneath this post, leaving a link to your zip or the source of your game, or whatever. (I really should get round to that Upload thing, shouldn't I!)

If you can't figure it out, or have a really rubbish server, send it to Jayenkai@Gmail.com and I'll stick it straight onto the SoCoder (Official Wed.Workshop) site.

Entries will be collected during the week, and then entered into the next week's voting. (If there are any entries..)

My entry for this week, a nice happy firework shooting game.

Called R1 incase I decide to make any more this week (which can then be R2, etc)

I made one too!
141-rectangle-rts.rar (1.1MB)

For a laugh, it's entirely interpreted in real-time by by scripting engine. I get about 10FPS, which isn't too bad for a 200-line script*!

* In my defence, that doesn't mean my scripting engine is unusably slow - I was looping through it fast enough for it to render each frame, which isn't what it's really meant to do

Heya, been meaning to enter one of these for a while ever since I found out about the site Work demands have been rather high lately -.-" Oh well, nice to meet you all and here's my game;
Rectangles Download
It's for the DS, so will need an emulator or hardware.

Played Ben's for a bit, I've always liked that game but can't play Jay's as I assume it's in BlitzBasic, which I don't have the tools to play with I guess

Anyways... Guess I'll see you all around

Nice to see a DS game, for a change!

Welcome to the site

(My zip, same link, now contains an exe)

Here is my entry. Yes I made a game and yes I also used Blitz Basic too. I'll be having myself committed tomorrow.

Entangled rectangles. I used Freebasic

This was nearly white rectangles on a black background but I thought I'd add some random colour into the mix which lead to the name...

Oooh! Oooh! Second entry!

I wanted to do something more interesting code wise but still managed to knock this up in one evening. A little lateral on the rectangle aspect but, well, everything you see (apart from the text) is rectangles...

I give you Rectangle Racer

Not the most original of ideas but it's the first time I've done anything even remotely like it

Did this in about 30 minutes to an hour. It's quite terrible, but I said I'd make an entry.

Just took a look at my second entry and discovered that it wasn't resetting properly! Each time you started, the difficulty started where it left off las time. A quick "count=0" later and I give you the new and improved (bug-fixed) Rectangle Racer Version 1.1

Now you actually stand a chance of beating your first score

Come rain or shine...

Bump! I just noticed that the games still haven't been uploaded. Last weeks WW, The Phone Challenge, also seems to be missing on the WW pages.
