Cemetech Contest 18 Results Announced
Published by jonbush on January 22, 2017 at 1:14:04 PM CST | Discuss this article (16)

It is my pleasure to present the official results of Cemetech Contest #18: Winter Wonderland.

Over the course of four weeks, the contestants were each tasked with creating three programs - each with a unique theme and purpose. This contest resulted in the creation of nearly a dozen entries, spanning three different platforms and four programming languages - many of which are now available in the Cemetech Archives.

Despite the chilling properties of last week’s submissions, I have succeeded in reviewing all of the entries and have reached a decision. I have been quite impressed by the high quality of the programs submitted for this contest, and I would like to extend my congratulations to all of the participants.

First place is awarded to Pieman7373, who created three entries for the TI-84+CSE in Hybrid BASIC. Pieman7373’s submissions include an adaptation of Concentration, a cupcake simulator, and a database of elemental freezing point:
  • For the first week of the contest, Pieman7373 created a matching game which requires the player to match any identical snowflakes to clear the board. This game features 18 different snowflake patterns and is sure to provide plenty of mentally stimulating gameplay.
  • Considering the fact that cupcakes are an essential component of any party, Pieman7373 has created a “cupcake simulator” that will enable calculator users throughout the world to design custom cupcakes suited perfectly to their needs. If you are an 8-bit cupcake fan, Cupcake Simulator should surely find its way onto your TI-84+CSE.
  • For the final week of the contest, Pieman7373 created a science utility that conveniently displays the freez(e)ing point of the elemental metals. The program includes everything from commonly known metals like lithium and aluminum, to less commonly known metals like “Bisμth.” Freezing Point is currently available in the Cemetech Archives.

Second place is awarded to PT_, who created three programs for the TI-84+CE in ICE - a programming language that PT_ has also developed. These entries include the spectacular Snowball Struggle and a sliding puzzle.
  • In Snowball Struggle, the player attempts to destroy bouncing snowballs while avoiding being crushed by one. Snowball Struggle features 17 levels, and is available for download in the Cemetech Archives.
  • For the second week of the contest, PT_ created a sliding tile game where the player must unscramble an image of a present by sliding tiles back and forth one at a time. The game is easy to use and features a built-in scrambling routine.
  • PT_’s third entry was intended to provide fun and excitement as the faces of various Cemetech members (including myself) freeze over in the frigid winds of the Polar Vortex. Unfortunately, a bug in the ICE programming language rendered this entry inoperable.

Honorable Mention:

We would like to recognize the outstanding efforts put forth by the following Cemetech members:
