The UDG king has returned! Though they're probably a modern reference I haven't heard of, I'm going to guess South Park.

Fortress is an interesting seeming game, but umm... how does the attacker win? The instructions do not explain :)
I gave Plumbers a try. The characters are obnoxious and the gameplay is arbitrary. Crap! (Nicely implemented though!)
I don't think it's possible to beat the computer, and that's probably the whole point of the game.

Regards,

Shaun.

I was going to to an unofficial tie-in simulator type thing as one of the next challenges, I'll make that announcement today.

Looks like it’s only possible to score any points by pressing a key at random times. The way the game logic works (as far as I can tell from a very cursory look), is it detects a keypress only after the color of the screen changes. I even deliberately slowed emulation down to ten percent and pressed and held a key as soon as the color of the screen matched that of the border. The game only acknowledged the keypress on the next color change.

Hint: Since colors change randomly, sometimes the same color is displayed twice in a row (possibly even more). Perhaps, once you press a key when the colors match the first time, if the next color happens to be the same as well, you’ll get lucky.

The game truly lives up to the competition’s name. :D
