Ei mãe, 500 pontos!
Terry Cavanagh, o criador do jogo, liberou o código fonte do consagrado VVVVVV, tanto para a versão desktop quanto mobile. Esse maravilhoso ato foi em comemoração aos 10 anos do jogo.
O código desktop foi transcrito para C++ com base numa versão anterior em Action Script:
"The desktop code is the version that was ported to C++ by Simon Roth back in 2011 and later updated and maintained by Ethan Lee, while the mobile code is written in Actionscript for Adobe AIR and is based on the original v1.0 flash version of the game."
Alguns comentários extras do Terry:
"Looking back through it myself all these years later, I find it really funny how much of it is basically just the same parts copy and pasted over and over, with the values changed. This basically makes it impossible to read and maintain ten years later, but back when I was in the thick of it, it made it really fast to iterate and add new things. I’ve gained better habits over the past decade, and I’m definitely a better programmer now -- but it does seem to take me longer to do things."
