here is a small game I developped with a previous version of the best pocket programming tool ever made: Basic4PPC.
I'm working on a new version using imagelib.dll with better graphisms and features.

I just translated this one from french to english.

Even if "Merchants" is not fully finished and debugged, it's playable.

You are a merchant running all over the country to buy goods and sell them at a better price. Because roads are dangerous, you can recruit guards, warriors, bowmen and knights to defend yourself.
You can also make small money by delivering the king's mail.

To move from a town to another, clic on the town you want to go and you will see a green circle appearing around it. Then clic on the red arrow to proceed to next turn. And you will travel.

You can take the king's mail only in castles.
You can upgrade your level only in dungeons
You can buy mules to carry more stuff as soon as you are level 2
Each time you upgrade your level, you can hire some new type of unit (warriors, bowmen, knights) and you can trade some new kind of goods.

You can see only the reachable towns on the map. the other are hidden.

The game can be downloaded here:

Very good job :sign0188:. It's nice to see what is possible to do with B4PPC. It's a good motivation for me.
Maybe you can add a SAVE possibility.

Thanks!
In fact, I will not continue the development of this game.
I designed it with a previous version of B4PPC which was not featuring the imagelib.dll.

Possibilities of imageLib are really much more impressing!
I just finished a map editor (see image attached) to design easily maps with any tilesets and use them in my games.
I'm developping a small "framework" to use and display the maps made with "map editor".
The attached file "test.zip" contains a test of this framework, with a modern town map.
Use the pen to move over the map.
You must add imageLib.dll in the test folder to be able to use the program.
