Tìngäzìk: a Retrospective – ep. 3 “Bf”

Bf #easy

Expected solvable difficulty

  • nohint+: experienced solvers
  • keywords+: most solvers

Level design

Esoteric programming languages are a good source of something that is hard by look, but easy to solve when you know what it is – just throw it into an interpreter or compiler and run. I initially have written some code using BF-it that actually takes in input and do calculations based on it. However, due to the fact that different interpreters has different size limit on variables, this would render code generated by it unusable on some of them. I then resorted to simple code that prints ASCII string instead.

Expected thought process

Figure out the question is a Brainfuck code (nohint+), or getting it from the keywords (keywords+). Then run it in an interpreter to get the answer.
