norman-screen.png

a game for thesycophant.
it's a single-screen platformer! it's not very lemmingsy, but it is vaguely lode runnery. and vaguely frustrating.

use the arrow keys!

uses vrld's hump and hardoncollider, and kadoba's advanced tiled loader for LÖVE
music is "surfing on a sinewave" by fearofdark (stephen hemstritch-johnston) (creative commons by-sa-nc)

see attached .love archive if you want to run the thing in osx or linux (must have LÖVE installed) or if you want to poke around in the source.

The Adventures of Bulb Boy

screenshot170.png

Help Bulb Boy exterminate the vermin from the area that is all dark and blue! Raise your electro-wand to attract the electricity from the nearest power coil and shock your enemies out of existence! Clear all the enemies to advance. 8 stages in all.

This one ran 1.5 hours late. Almost an hour of that was me just not being able to do my math.

CONTROLS:
LEFT/RIGHT - Move
X - Jump
Z - Raise wand
C - Switch power coils on and off

S - Save
R - Restore
E - Retry level

Thanks to Dessgeega/Auntie Pixelante for the font, "Slanted."

Game engine is modified from my as yet untitled in-progress game for this month's Bakedown at SelectButton, so I had a lot of my basic work already done, but all visuals are original to this version. And it's got a wacky save feature.

(This game could use better levels.)
