Article Translation –

The cold season is coming (?). At times like these, warm food, like ramen, is especially delicious.
Because of this, I’ve made this Ramen Shop game, perfect for these cold days (?).

– How to play

Use the GJKN keys to move the cook and get the ramen bowls at the top.
Afterwards, deliver them to patrons with their hand raised.
However, there are also tummy-grumbling pigs chasing the cook around; dodge them to the best of your ability and deliver all the ramen to your patrons.

– Program

I’ve added a lot of things to this, so it’s like Kage’s face (fugly). You shouldn’t refer to this program too musch if you’re new to programming.


Dr. D: Listing 1 is very well done. Every column of values is padded to the highest possible value so as to keep them all neatly aligned. It makes it easier to read them that way!
Recently, I’ve been seeing a lot of submissions in which the author isn’t afraid to omit, say, for the value “0A”, the “0” and only write “A”. This completely breaks the readability of the columns.
