Building Simple Games Using SQL Server


While creating useful projects with SQL Server isn’t anything new, you may not know that SQL Server has been used to create some simple games. In an old post from Lionel Clarke, we see how Transact-SQL can be used to build a simple maze game.

There seems to be computer game written in almost every language out there but I haven’t yet found one written in Transact SQL. I thought that poor old DBAs should have some form of game to play so I have written a little 3D maze game in Transact SQL. Since there is no obvious way of interacting with the game it is designed to be used from within Query Analyzer.

You can see the details of the game and download the source here.
