Retro real-time strategy with Pascal & Assembler

Throwback time video

This is “War”, a 2D strategy game inspired by Dune 2D and Warcraft 2D. A MS DOS application written in Pascal + a lot of ASM. Unfinished due to hardware HDD crash (that was the age without CDs and pendrives :-/). The Exodus game was the version coded by my friend, for Amiga computer, which actually went to the stores. I only have a few test versions left, compiled and still running on DOS Box.

The biggest challenge was the path-finding algorithm, which, in order to be playable, had to be divided into parts counted every picture frame. Otherwise it took up more than one frame in the assembler making the game unplayable. 1997
