Skeletons in the Closet PLUS

Screen_22.png

Find all bottles to move onto next stage. Avoid skeletons.

Use arrows to move, X to jump.

A tribute to CGA IBM compatible games and to jfroco's Skeletons in the Closet, a tribute to Sinclair ZX Spectrum games.
____________________
Here is my very late submission to this most excellent idea for a game jam! As Danni said about the original Skeletons in the Closet, "This is neat but it needs way more levels." So I present to you, Skeletons in the Closet PLUS! Whereas the original game had only three levels, this enhanced port gives you TWELVE.

jfroco's game is a tribute to the style of ZX-82 games, which they grew up on. I really liked the game when I played it in the GDC Pirate Kart. Personally, I don't have any particular nostalgia for the Spectrum, but my equivalent would be early Apogee-type shareware platformers . So my little headcanon is that this is the MS-DOS port from the late 1980s that alters the original Spectrum game, moves things around, and expands it a bit. All three original stages are adapted for this version!

platformin' norman and the curse of no variable jumping

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.
