My History Using C++

I first used the C language on a Commodore Amiga back in the early 90s using the DICE compiler. I created a few small programs for myself and friends, mainly mapping software for the play-by-mail games that I used to play at the time (Monster Isalnd, Dungeon Quest, Keys of Medokh etc.), although I did try to create some basic games as well.

Back then I didn't have access to the Internet so nothing ever got published (and probably never actually got to the stage of being publishable anyway). When I bought my first PC I moved onto the Visual Basic / Delphi route of programming and it wasn't until about 2016 that I started thinking about coding in C again.

I opted for C++ as that was integrated into Visual Studio that I had been using for developing in Visual Basic and I thought I'd give a few small problems a go. I created a few programs for solving some Project Euler problems and then came across a course on Udemy that included the basics of C++ and signed up.

My first public release is a very simple word based code-breaking game but hopefully I'll get the chance to create more work soon.

Released July 2018

This is a complete game but currently has only 10 different words of each length to guess so probably won't keep you occupied for too long but I do intend to spend some time improving this and making a more advanced version with better options when I get time.

It works very similar to my Code Breaker game but is a console-based game and so doesn't include any fancy graphics or saving of statistics.
