I wrote a game in the C language that runs in command prompt.
It uses the wasd keys to move a 0 around in a sea of *s.
You can enter up to 6 wasd keys and then press enter.
This allows you to move one square at a time or move many squares at a time (which I like to call teleporting).

Link to code executable:
The code text file includes comments in which I do my best to explain the program.
I encourage you to build on this basic code. Try adding 7s that chase your 0 and 9s that attempt to protect your 0 but get eaten by the 7s.
I've only been with them for 2 Saturdays, but the Junior Knights Program at UCF is where I learned to program in C. I thank them them for all they've taught me in just those 2 days.
