Pac-Man implemented in Excel

Saturday 1 November 2003

This has got to win some kind of award for the most complete game implemented on the least-capable platform: Pac-Man for Excel. It’s a complete, playable, faithful implementation of the arcade Pac-Man game, written in Excel macros, with pixels of the game displayed by changing the background colors of minutely-sized cells! I’m flabbergasted. I don’t even know enough about scripting Excel to be able to read the code this guy has written.

Wow... THAT is just too cool! Not very useful, but VERY cool... :-)

Wow?


Cool?


Pixel mapping through an MS Excel spreadsheet? That has to be the best example of a bad choice of implementation technology that I have ever seen (other than a Lotus Notes driven website, of course).



Give this guy a nickel for his wasted time.
