ansi-terminal-game: sdl-like functions for terminal applications, based on ansi-terminal

[ game, gpl, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

Library which aims to replicate standard 2d game functions (blit, ticks, timers, etc.) in a terminal setting; features double buffering to optimise performance. Aims to be cross compatible (based on "ansi-terminal", no unix-only dependencies), practical. See examples folder for some minimal programs. A full game: venzone.

Readme for ansi-terminal-game-1.6.0.2

[back to package description]
==================
ansi-terminal-game
==================

`ansi-terminal-game` is a library for creating games in a terminal setting.

Goals
-----

- be cross platform (linux/win/mac). If you plan to have your executable
  unix only, I invite you to check brick [1] or other, more expressive
  libraries.
- be simple: no curses/ncurses/pdcurses/etc. dependencies, all
  functionality built on a standard input / ANSI terminal base.

[1] http://hackage.haskell.org/package/brick

Learn
-----

- run the basic example with `cabal new-run -f examples alone`;
- check the source in `examples/Alone.hs`;
- open the 'Terminal.Game' haddock documentation (start reading from
  `Data.Game`).

A full game can be found at:
