Flappy Doom

fl-doom.png

FLAPPY DOOM, another joke by me for Grid Grind 2020.

You are Flynn "Mabel" Taggart. Your mission: drag the demons back to hell (for as long as you can).
- Press the SPACEBAR to flap.
- Aim with the mouse. Shoot with the LEFT MOUSE BUTTON.
- If you are out of bullets, collecting them can help.
- Doors are locked unless you find the RED KEYCARD when prompted.
- Press the "R" key to start or restart the game.

Grid Grind elements used:
- mysterious industrial building
- "Mabel"
- locked doors

OTHER CREDITS:
- Original Doom by id Software.
- Original Doom music and sound effects by Robert "Bobby" Prince. Patch mapper for this rendition by Tom Klok. Available at vgmpf.com.

Weekend at Chompface's

chompface_01.png

WEEKEND AT CHOMPFACE'S, an HTML5 joint made for Grid Grind 2020. It plays in nearly any browser. The description:

You are one of the ghosts, and instead of tagging out Chompface like you usually do, you ended up killing him. You gotta get outta Dodge, but first you need to find and collect all four tires to your getaway van. Until you do, you can't raise suspicion. Play it cool so that ZEZMERON and MS. CHOMPFACE aren't any the wiser, and don't do anything too wacky or you risk your arcade cabinet being rebooted!

[NOTE: updated to include more clues about how to reduce suspicion. Thanks for all the feedback and critique, folks!]

///

This is a "Pac-Man/Weekend At Bernie's Mashup Parody Action Puzzle" made for the Grid Grind 2020. Collect all four tires before either the red bar or the purple bar reach 0 (the detectors for Zezmeron and the arcade game player, respectively). There are four different endings for you to discover. I wrote and sang a song for this game. Grid Grind 2020 features included:

  • Medicine
  • Edible Rocks
  • Utopia
  • A Van

I kinda didn't follow the rules to the event, and in fact the game morphed a lot in the past couple months. I finally settled on "reverse Pac-Man" and the rest of the game kinda wrote itself. I beg your indulgence. I had too much fun making this to start worrying about that stuff.

Additional credits:
"Frosty The Snowman" karaoke tune found on YouTube.
Car engine sound effects from Clickteam sample libraries.
Background music for menus and end screens made by me in a MIDI music program some time ago (I can't remember the name).
If you're wondering how DEVO fits into the soundtrack, I reversed the sound of the siren at the beginning of their video for "Jocko Homo."

This is PLASTER MASTER, A Game made by let-off-studios for the Springtime Santa 2020 event for Hubol. Hope you enjoy it! :)

Guide Bug Eye the frog who starts a journey to complete some minor repairs, and ends up fixing much more (and making some new friends along the way).

This is BIRDMAN, made for the One Hour Game Jam. This time, the theme was Poorly-Programmed Gravity. I felt right at home. :)

You are BIRDMAN and you are collecting coins. Use the ARROW KEYS to move. Game is over when the timer runs out. Try for a high score. Enjoy!

(Had to deal with a frustrating issue related to using Clickteam Physics and exporting to HTML5, but thanks to someone's suggestion on the CT forums it was fixed and now the game works as intended).

GGJ 2020: Space Harriet vs. The Cosmo-Zombies

ggj2020_02.png

After a few false starts, I came up with a game for the Global Game Jam 2020. In Space Harriet vs. The Cosmo-Zombies, the player flies around shooting zombies that emerge from a hole in Space-Time, and on occasion an Astro-Vampire. Description from the GGJ site:

Quote:
The space-time continuum is under attack! As the ace pilot, Space Harriet, maintain order in the universe and repair the Rainbow TimeStream (TM) as quickly as possible. Rumour has it that not only Cosmo-Zombies are on the loose, but rebellious Astro Vampires are as well! Stay sharp! Stay vigilant! Go for a top score...!

KEYBOARD CONTROLS:
LEFT/RIGHT ARROW KEYS = Rotate clockwise/counter-clockwise
SHIFT KEY = Fire weapon. Hold to engage auto-fire.

GAMEPAD CONTROLS (Press CTRL+Y to open control menu, click the box under "1" and next to "Joystick 1", then click OK.)
LEFT/RIGHT = Rotate clockwise/counter-clockwise
GAMEPAD BUTTON 1 = Fire weapon. Hold to engage auto-fire.

I will update the game eventually with a proper title screen, some graphical tweaks and options, and a few more user-friendly things. Meanwhile the game is completely playable and I love watching the Astro-Vampire's face. Enjoy! :)

2720: The Last Mouse On Earth (For Petra)

final-mousehouse.png

Happy Klikmas, Petra! I hope you enjoy your gift.

2720: The Last Mouse On Earth.
You are the little green Mouse character. You are exploring the world, and will eventually seek out a new friend. This is more like an interactive story than a game.

--CONTROLS--
MOVE with the ARROW KEYS.
JUMP and DOUBLE-JUMP with the SHIFT KEY.
DROP DOWN from some platforms by holding DOWN and pressing SHIFT.
Hold the ESC key to return to the title screen from any point in the game.

Any questions? Find any bugs? Please let me know as soon as convenient. Thanks!

///

Petra's wish-list is as follows:
For secret santa, I'd like glimpses into (an)other unfamiliar world(s)
I hope the santa who gets me can work with that and has a lovely time doing so. :3

The rest of this extra:

Things I like:
-Bats
-Animals, it's hard to choose
-Anthro stuff
-Cozy & kind & nice & soft (but don't let that restrict you)
-Creativity
-Exploring
-Space things (Like, things in there. Maybe not so much stars and planets)
-but also nature
-Places that are turned inwards
-Reflection (optically and mentally)
-Colourful things
-Nice (night?) skies
-GIFs and early 3D renderings

Stuff that isn't as easy as "I like this"

-Spiders are cool but please don't add spiderwebs I have a phobia for the latter.
-Ruins that look like they could have been functioning spaces instead of just grand monumentality
-If you want to do non-happy stuff then please do sad instead of angry
-Absolutely no horror please

///

I also had a look at Petra's art submissions, and used the two characters shown there. The green Mouse is the main character of the game I made.

1HGJ: CandyGet

CANDYGET, a game made in just over an hour for the One Hour Game Jam. This time, the theme was Halloween.

You're trick or treating at an apartment complex, and want to collect as much candy as possible. Use the ARROW KEYS to navigate the halls, jump up to the next floor, and drop down to the lower floors.

Try for a high score. A score approaching 1,000 is pretty good, and a score over 1,000 is great!

Enjoy! Plays in nearly any browser.

1HGJ: Frederick Douglass Stars In: Reach Armlong Saves The Mail!

armlong.png

FREDERICK DOUGLASS STARS IN: REACH ARMLONG SAVES THE MAIL! A game made for the One Hour Game Jam. This time, the theme was Trains.

Collect the mail that's been scattered by the wind. Fortunately for the US Postal Service, Reach Armlong is not only one of the most flexible people in these United States, but he's also a locomotive engineer! Using his engineering skills and his incredibly stretchy left arm, reclaim all the mail that's been scattered by the Pony Express.

CONTROLS:
A and D: move left or right along the track.
MOUSE: aim Armlong's arm.
HOLD LEFT MOUSE BUTTON: Stretch out Armlong's arm. Collect letters and parcels by overlapping them.

Kind of a game, but kind of not, really. This took me way too long to make (for a one-hour game jam) and after the 90-minute mark, I kinda said, "Well whatever." Then Frederick Douglass came to mind for some reason.

Plays in nearly any browser. There is no end condition. Enjoy!
