A couple of days ago, I started implementing a rather interesting piece of code. It was late into the night, and I was not feeling like doing my regular work and neither was I sleepy.
This game was developed by me during my Senior Secondary (12th class) using TC++. It is provides a compleltely GUI interface despite being developed ina 16-bit environment. The Game supports various animations, custom sound play, Mouse support, keyboard navigation among other features.
KAUN BANEGA CROREPATI is a game show where you exercise your knowledge and earn money for it. KBC consists of 15 questions and you win the corresponding amount for every correct answer you give. The game starts at Rs. 1,000. You encounter two important breakpoints in the game, one at Rs.10,000 and other at Rs.3,20,000. If you answer the questions corresponding to these values correctly, you take at least Rs.10,000 or Rs.3,20,000 from here.
Three lifelines have been provided for your help. If you are not sure about the answer of any question,you can use them to help yourself out. You can use
only one lifeline at a time. Press F1 anytime while playing the game for the details.
If you give a wrong answer, your amount would be depreciated to the nearest lower breakpoint. Therefore if you are not sure about the answer of any
question even after using a lifeline you can press Esc any time to exit the game and you can take away the current amount of money you have already won without any depreciation.
It is a MSDos based game, played by running "Launch.exe".

KAUN BANEGA CROREPATI unlike any other gameshow, uniquely provides you three lifelines which you can use when you are not sure about the answer of any question. The three lifelines are :-
50:50 - You can use this lifeline by pressing "1". This lifeline erases two wrong answers leaving a correct and a wrong answer.
4 : 2 - You can use this lifeline by pressing "2". This lifeline allows you to answer two options and you win if any of the two options is the correct one.
T / F - This lifeline changes the question and puts it with one of the option as possible answer and you have to tell whether the option is correct or not. You can use this lifeline by pressing "3".
The three lifelines are always shown on the top right of the screen . A lifeline with a red cross on it indicates that it has been used and is no longer available.
Always remember that you can use only one lifeline at a time.
