One Key Games

The challenge? Create a game that only uses one key. That means the key you use to control the game is the same used for moving through options and quitting the game. And, no, you can’t use the mouse or joystick. Just one key. Talk about constraints!

Read through these messages and try out some of the early entries. It should be interesting to see where this goes.

I am guessing you mean "can't" use the mouse. I got a 2d drving/ shooting game. You hold in the button to go and, when an enemy comes, let go of the button and shoot, or just let go then tap it.

Good catch.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
