> homage to the renowned three-decade-old arcade game, Wizard of Wor.
> While it makes a fine time killer if you have a few minutes to spare, it
> might be of special interest to the lost souls who are trying to figure
> out FRP. The game was programmed using the Simple version of the
> experimental branch of Elerea [2], which provides first-class discrete
> streams to describe time-varying quantities, and the main game logic is
> described as a composition of streams instead of a world state
> transformer. Developing in this manner was an interesting experience,
> and I'll write about it in more detail over the weekend.
