THE THROWDOWN: Make as many games as we can -- spooky or unspooky -- over a 48-hour period on Halloween weekend!

THE PLACE: IRC, natch. The server is irc.freenode.net, the channel #glorioustrainwrecks.

THE WEAPONS: Anything you can get your hands on. Klik'n'Play, Game Maker, Construct, Unity, pencils, beer, hairspray, frying pans, vacuum cleaners, shopping carts and tuna are all fair game.

THE FOREWARNING: None whatsoever!

LET'S GET SPOOKY.

SHOUT AT A GHOST

made with scratch.


inaugural halloweekend game
is unspeakably terrible and suffers from SPOOKY BEHAVIOUR DISCREPANCIES in the embedded version. it will probably not let you shout at a ghost, but if you download it and load it in scratch you may still be able to shout at a ghost. but it is probably not worth it unless you really want to shout at a ghost.

(also scratch's incredible "random sprite" feature (which should be compulsory in every piece of software) gave me a ghost immediately, which surely adds to the URBAN LEGENDARY/CREEPTOLOGICAL FACTOR.)

made with construct.

a game about mondays. controls: WASD + mouse. actually pretty complete! ADVANCED GAMEPLAY TECHNOLOGY might actually crap out on you a bit if you don't have shader model xyz or whatever.

Berzerk or Treat

Evil Otto isn't in, nor do the robots accidentally destroy each other. Extra lives at intervals of 2000 points, which in hindsight is way too high. Also, enemy speeds increment every screen.

i imagine in klik and play that would cause a robot to kill itself by shooting. you're a mad scientist of klik and play though so i expect you to figure it out.

Robot-lethal bullets would

Robot-lethal bullets would be easy (just keep track of their age in frames, and check that they're at least a few frames old), evil otto too. the hardest part would be copying the changed events to every screen.

It would also benefit from a player spawning ritual and a better player graphic ... I'll tinker with it at the last minute.

Egyptian Run

Tribute to an old Amiga PD game which had a very scary Game Over screen.

Dodge the small pyramids and when you reach the end use the missile to blow up the big pyramid. I'm not sure if it can be completed. I hope so, but it gets very tough at the end and I haven't done it yet.

Shift to restart game and control to quit.

Desert Dalicks v1.0

It's the same old Robots game, emerging from the depths of your Macintosh LC and inexorably creeping its way onto your flatscreen PC.

You know what to do: move in a grid, make the robots collide, and so forth.

Clicks or numpad keys move you.
Hold space and click or push a numpad key to move your shadow.
Press enter to swap places with your shadow.

You may notice from the preceding instructions that one detail of the original has been modified - the random teleporter. By giving it a predetermined destination, I like to think that the game has been significantly loosened from the seductive yet capricious grip of Chance.

when i did this programming

when i did this programming exercise i had the robots prefer diagonal movement (ie every step they would move to adjust their x or y position to be closer to the player's if they weren't in the same row / column as her). i don't remember if that was the rule in the versions i played or if it was my own invention.

i like the shadow, though, and that it moves at a different speed than the player. and moving the shadow gives the player something to do on turns that, in the original game, would just be spent WAITing.

"...Truly the most life-affirming videogame..."

"The reason the Internet exists is for this game to be created and for this review to tell you about it."

"...the final boss was God. And as I exploded His face, I realised that the world is a beautiful creation and that everything will be alright."

The Great Zhang Adventure!

Featuring a rich, well-developed backstory, a deep moral choice system, and a pulse-pounding, adrenaline-pumping battle engine! (I'm almost serious there. I got excited when playing! Totally crazy.)

Also, I made it for a friend's birthday! But it was on the Halloween weekend and it is pretty lo-fi so I think it is also a trainwreck.

You can get it here! (It requires Python 2.x, but that is pretty easy to get.)
