OUR ATMOSPHERE IS COLLAPSING!
PLEASE HELP FIX IT!
TIME IS RUNNING OUT!
Snake. Rubbish. Pretty ronseal.
THE FOLLOWING POST IS A WORK OF FICTION INTENDED TO CREATE ATMOSPHERE AND BACKSTORY FOR A HALLOWEEN GAME
Figured I'd make a new thread for a new month.
A quick note before this week's find: Prior to the Geocities rescue mission (great job all involved!) I had made a list of the places I had been downloading these freehosting picks from. Now that list isn't anywhere to be found. I know I had been writing it on my other laptop, but I can't find it anywhere on the drive. I still worry that the list might have contained links to some Geocities pages that we didn't get to mirror.
What I did find on the laptop however was "Fred's Exciting Adventure"! It's a cute little platformer starring what looks like a cross between Cool Spot and Sonic the Hedgehog. The levels make heavy use of KnP clipart, but there's an interesting visual conflict between the home-made and stock art. A little green guy runs back and forth on the hill, and knocks you into the air if you touch him. He's a little difficult to jump over, but it seems to work if you just hold the right arrow and jump key down. The next screen introduces spikes and moving platforms, which make the green guy more dangerous (notice the blood on the spikes if you fall on them!). He even has the nerve to stop at the edge some times, making it impossible to jump him until he starts moving again!
I haven't had time to finish the game yet (so busy that my Monday updates are on Thursday!) but a glance at the levels in KnP seem to indicate that the game isn't very long (maybe even unfinished?). Something about the game feels really familiar to me, and I don't know why that makes me uneasy. Maybe it's just that I don't know if this game was from one of the Geocities sites we could have lost, which adds an air of mystery to it for me. Until I track down that text file again, or find the site I got it from, this game is an orphan.
The amazing sequel to the smash hit Prof. EagleEye.
The Prof is back, and this time he sees even more differences.
-Giddy people all over the world that want to play it
-As good as the first one
BALANCE OF THE PLANET!
Left/right to move rubbish (in this case, ABBA albums), press control to drop!
How many can you drop before the planet becomes overloaded with rubbish?!
Press R to restart!
It's Pong, Jim, but not as we know it.
Without warning every couple of seconds you gain control of a random paddle. This makes scoring a challenge.
First to nine points wins but only I lose I can do much better than this like what the fuck man?
Podunkian wasn't able to attend this weekend's Klik of the Month, and he was feeling really beat up about it. I mean seriously depressed. Trying to drink himself into oblivion depressed. And that's terrible, you know?
So we had this thing: one hour time limit, sprite sheet theme. Both of us drinking, Pod all kliking through tears, so expect quality.
This short, simple text adventure presents the (potentially darker) end of a fairy tale.
This fickle concert audience keeps changing its mind: Does it want The Piano Man to play them a song? Or do they want Mr. Tambourine Man to play? Spotlight the right one at the right moment to get points! Beat my high score of 30,920!
(The game has an ending when both songs finish ~2:15)
