Arena.xlsm Excel-Based Game

Arena.xlsm Excel-Based Game - RF CafeThis is pretty cool, especially if you appreciate someone using a tool for a purpose likely never conceived of by its original creator. You have probably used a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet at some point in your career for business, engineering or personal calculations. Did you know that Excel is programmable in the form of macros (Visual Basic for Applications, aka VBA) and via external calls from other programming languages? My RF Cascade Workbook series relies heavily on VBA. This rudimentary game titled Arena.xlsm is a spreadsheet created by Mr. Cary Walkin (xlsm is the file extension for an Excel file with embedded macros). Your objective is to pursue and slay evil snakes, bunnies, and other garden variety (pun intended) creatures before they kill you. The interface is reminiscent of early DOS-based games.
