Have you ever wanted to play games in a couple clicks in ComputerCraft?
Strafe is a Steam-like game distribution program where you can download and play games easily.
To install games, you simply click on the “Install Games” tab and then you click on the “Install” button of the games you want to install.
When you’ve installed a game, click on the “Downloaded Games” tab to view your local game library and then click on “Play” to play the game.
This program works on all devices that have a color display with a minimum width of 26 pixels.
You can scroll through the games with the mouse wheel or with the arrows at the right side of the screen.

Download:

– Gold Runner by nitrogenfingers
– BBTetris by Bomb Bloke
– Minecraft Chess by nitrogenfingers
– Snake Maze by nitrogenfingers

– BBCards by Bomb Bloke

If you want to have your game in Strafe, it has to follow these rules:
– No absolute paths.
– No fake loading times.
– No prompts during installation.
– It has to be functional.
– And most important of all, it has to be fun.

If you have recently updated your game or if your game has been misrepresented in any way, please send me a PM.
If you want to change the banner of your game, PM me a new banner (24 x 5) in NFT, SRF or PNG (screenshot) format and I’ll change it.

Could you add FlappyPixel. If you say yes, I'll finish the interface these days and notify you when it is ready for distribution.

offtopic:// First!

Yes, if you add some menus and balance the gameplay :D
My biggest problem with FlappyPixel is that the game is unresponsive.
When you click, it takes way too long to get higher.
And the game goes too fast, you don't have enough time to react.

I know Strafe is used for games, but can you please add my minimap program? There are no other app stores as it seems. Pastebin: G7SmdMKD
Banner: mKKa3yQq

I'll add it as soon as possible, but your banner is in NFT format, which is a binary file.
Pastebin doesn't support binary files, so please upload it to something like MediaFire or convert it to SRF format using the Surface API and this script:
os.loadAPI("surface")
local surf = surface.load("banner.nft")
surf:save("banner.srf", "srf")

Now I even got a +1 on my Flappy Pixel post. I'll have it done by tomorrow (have to study today).

Master of procrastination, I am.

This is really nice!

Could I maybe have Strafe in my upcoming OS? (may take a while before I release it)

Great Job!

So I was looking at your screenshot of a pocket computer showing BBTetris in the banner, and thought to myself, "BBTetris doesn't work on a pocket computer"...

I've patched support in (v1.0.6, for your banner), but still, I don't see much point in suggesting users download scripts onto a system that outright can't run them. I suggest filtering your downloads list.

While testing Strafe itself, I also noticed that 1) it doesn't indicate which tab is selected very well (a different shade of grey behind the text would do wonders), 2) you can scroll past the end of the banner list, 3) it doesn't show any scripts from ROM as being installed (worm, adventure, etc), and 4) it doesn't pause when a script it executes has finished (meaning errors such as "don't try to run me on a pocket computer!" can't be read; I suggest a "script finished, press any key to return to strafe" prompt).

Thanks for the very useful feedback!
I'll add everything you said in the next update.
