After falling in love with the idea behind BitCoins, I wanted see if I could incorporate it into a flash project.
I came up with this (currently small) flash bitcoin tournament game.
The idea is fairly simple.
The player pays an entry fee into the jackpot to play.
At the conclusion of the tournament, the pot will be split amongst the winners.
If things go well and theres some interest behind this, I'll probably flesh out a more defined site offering heads up and smaller scale tournaments.
If youre interested, check out the Beta site here:http://pigames.dyndns.org
This test run will be finished at 11:59PM EST time on May 6th
I'd strongly recommend playing a few practice games before actually playing in the tournament to get a feel for the game.
The game itself is very simple in design. Its a trivial math game. The objective is to click on the blocks to create a sum of 10. The faster you do this, and the more blocks you use, the higher your score.
The game ends after 1 minute.
I tried to come up with a game that focuses more on 'skill' than any type of RNG.
I'd recommend pausing your miners if playing this from your mining machine. It uses both Box2D and a particle engine (CPU heavy).
I'm also going to be releasing this game into the wild to drum up some BitCOIN awareness (my Facebook games generate around 250,000 views a month).
As for the backend....
Im using a 3rd party leaderboard system for keeping track of scores.
The user ID will be the payout address for any winnings.
I'm also using a 3rd party tool to 'hide' the scores from memory hacks.
The swf file itself is domain locked, encrypted and obfuscated.
There is no account system and no need to supply an email (its completely anonymous) - just make sure you supply the right payout address.
