TIS-100 is an open-ended programming game by Zachtronics, the creators of SpaceChem and Infinifactory, in which you rewrite corrupted code segments to repair the TIS-100 and unlock its secrets. It’s the assembly language programming game you never asked for!
The Tessellated Intelligence Systems TIS-100 is a massively parallel computer architecture comprised of non-uniformly interconnected heterogeneous nodes. The TIS-100 is ideal for applications requiring complex data stream processing, such as automated financial trading, bulk data collection, and civilian behavioral analysis.
Despite its appearances, TIS-100 is a game!
Print and explore the TIS-100 reference manual, which details the inner-workings of the TIS-100 while evoking the aesthetics of a 1980’s computer manual!
Solve more than 45 puzzles, competing against your friends and the world to minimize your cycle, instruction, and node counts.
Design your own challenges in the TIS-100’s 3 sandboxes, including a “visual console” that lets you create your own games within the game!
Uncover the mysteries of the TIS-100… who created it, and for what purpose?
TIS-100 is an assembly language game from the developers of games like Space Chem, you have a system to do your assembly ,you have a number of compute nodes on your screen like a spaces were you can give instructions, a register to perform mathematics, a back up register and communication channels. for each level you get a task that you need to perform, for example: read a value from input X , double that value and put it in output X, it's very simple and everything you need is on the screen , you move the read value into the accumulator box and then you add the accumulator value to whatever is in it (which is the value you just added) and then you move the accumulator box to the left side where you see the arrows between the nodes , and so on until you produce all the values that are on your checklist to the right , if one of the values is not correct it means you've made a mistake and you have to back up to the point were it needs correcting. I didn't think I would enjoy this type of game , but it's a really fun diversion and teaches you a lot about thinking like a programmer , it's graphics are very simple doss like black and white font, this game might not be for every one if you think you could be into this type of game it is a nice way to spend some time and work your brain.
