I've programmed a one player strategy game called 'homeyg's Nuclear Wars.' Even though it is without graphics, I have implemented text colors in this one. I need some people to test it for me, give suggestions, give ideas about what else to add, whatever. If you want to see the code, say it (but it's highly uncommented).
Here is the link to the zipped .exe.
The game has a short tutorial, so you're not completely lost.
