There was an old solitaire board game, years ago, called Time Tripper. It was a hoot to play – a grunt in Vietnam (contemporary when the game came out in 1980) falls back in time and finds himself fighting Romans and dinosaurs and all sorts of things. I mentioned the creativity behind it HERE. Anyway, the game is up and you can play the current cobbled version (its still being worked – not complete, but free, all the same).
You can track down the free versions on our Facebook page devoted to the project by clicking HERE. The game and everything will be under the files area. You’ll need Excel to run it.
I really enjoyed this effort – am still enjoying it. I’d forgotten how much fun game development is, especially on a low-graphic/high-speed-development environment like Excel. The spreadsheets work well for presenting data and doing background grunt-calcs, and VBA is good for doing game flow tasks.
Anyway, if you want to see if you can dodge arrows while dialing the flux, go into FB and pull down the freeware. And if you don’t do FB on principle (which I can respect), post me privately via my contact information on the left-side menus and I’ll email you a copy.
