    DronS 1.1 released.
    light cycle game updated.
    n00bey has released an updated version of his light cycle game DronS. For those new to these sort of games light cycles featured prominently in the film Tron and have since become the basis for one of the trifecta of hello world [of games] along with pong and tetris. Play is geared around 2 or more players (cpu and human available) but it resembles the mobile phone game snake or if you prefer nibbles.bas.
    This game is 3d "wireframe", DLDI is necessary for saving configuration files (instructions are to create a 0k file called DronS.cfg (case sensitive) somewhere on the memory card).

    I thing I don't like about this game is that you can't tell what's around you! There should be some sort of bird's-eye map so that you can actually tell what's going on rather than just randomly turning every time you get close to a wall/opponent.

    Yeah, youre right =| I'll make a minimap ~ But it will take some time, I have to think about how, because the arena size isnt fixed....
    But first there will be another version with some various improvements ^^"
