Subject: ANN: Dungeons of Wor - a largish FRP example and a fun game, all in one!
Date: Thursday 11th February 2010 08:35:35 UTC (over 6 years ago)
Hello all, I just uploaded the first public version of Dungeons of Wor , a homage to the renowned three-decade-old arcade game, Wizard of Wor. While it makes a fine time killer if you have a few minutes to spare, it might be of special interest to the lost souls who are trying to figure out FRP. The game was programmed using the Simple version of the experimental branch of Elerea , which provides first-class discrete streams to describe time-varying quantities, and the main game logic is described as a composition of streams instead of a world state transformer. Developing in this manner was an interesting experience, and I'll write about it in more detail over the weekend. All the best, Gergely  http://hackage.haskell.org/package/dow  http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/elerea/1.2.3/doc/html/FRP-Elerea-Experimental-Simple.html -- http://www.fastmail.fm - The professional email service
