memset 0x801 - You are a being of pure electricity, whose job is to write zero bytes in memory
Version: 1.0.0memset 0x801 is a game inspired by Micro Fun's Miner 2049er, a game released in 1982 for the Apple II (and various other systems). It takes place on a microscopic level inside a computer.
Operating System: Mac OS X
You are a being of pure electricity, whose job is to write zero bytes in memory. This is accomplished by simply walking over each byte in the level. Once you have zeroed all the memory in the level, you can proceed to the next.
You may run into compiler warnings lurking in the level. Don't get too close to them, or you may trigger a bug that will corrupt memory and delete you. If you pick up a source file, you'll have a limited time to fix the compiler warnings.
Strings and pointers allow you to travel from one block of memory to another. Strings can be traversed at will, but pointers only go one way, and take you to their destination immediately if you walk over the bytes from which they originate.
You can also jump for short distances, but be careful not to fall too far - as an electrical being, you are very unstable, and too long of a fall may destroy you on impact.
