A brand new game
for Windows, Linux, Mac, HTML5, 3DS Homebrew and more
12th May, 2009
This week's Wednesday Workshop (#200! wowie) asked us to create a game using no more than 2000 characters.
I managed to recreate the classic 8-bit title "Splat!", whereby you control a spider through a maze, picking up fruit.
In order to squeeze all that into 2000 characters, I opted for simpler mouse movement, and few other bits and pieces.
Then I figured, what the heck, and decided to make it a wee bit bigger for AGameAWeek.
Guide the worm through the maze, grab the circles, avoid the squares, and..
well, that's about it!
I think I've done enough snake games, now!!
Highscores enabled, Badges too!
And if you have a copy of BlitzBasic, you'll also find the 2000 character version in there, too, as sourcecode.
Titles = Me, from the Spider game
Ingame = -Elwood-, "Deadlock", grabbed from Aminet. I really need to deal with my lack of music, somehow!
