[WHAT IS 486?]

It's a game where you can fight, drink, dance, steal, lift, drive, and bet on fighting robots...all as a square. 

486(pronounced "four eighty-six" ) is named after the popular processors of the mid 1990s I grew up on. I blend a lot of game play elements from games I love like Dragon Warrior, GTA, Adventure, Defender and Myst.  

The entire game was programmed in Qbasic64.


I told my friend, "I bet I could make a video game!"
Three years later...here it is.


ARROW KEYS  - Moves the player.
I - Accesses inventory.
ESC - Menu and to quit game.

The rest is self explanatory and indicated on screen.


1) The goal is simple: 

Get the Global High Score.

What makes it unique is how you go about that. You could drink at the bar to gain rep, go dance at BEAT BEAT EVOLUTION or beat up everyone you run into. Entirely up to you. Yes, the SCORES ARE GLOBAL so challenge your buddies across the country!   

2)Time is always against you. You constantly need energy to maintain top speed and food / supplies to stay alive. 

3)Get REP or get DED. Rep is your leveling system and allows you access to new areas and makes you stronger. 

4)Travel wisely. The world is full of dangers, travel smart and well prepared. 
Stores with X over the doors mean they are not accessible. 

It's a good idea to watch the credits.
