Skeletons in the Closet PLUS


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!
