New games every week!
2nd September 2008
This week's Wednesday Workshop <a href="http://socoder.net/index.php?topic=1206">#166</a> asked for us to create a game that uses lots of Balance.
I couldn't come up with anything!
So, instead, here's JNKPlat DS 08.

It's a complete restart of the engine, coded wholly from start, but using the old sprites so as to keep the good old fashioned style of the last one! (Although, had I redrawn the sprites... they'd pretty much have ended up the same, anyway!)
AMAZING NEW FEATURE!This time, I've added a striped background.
Oh yeah, that's right!
A Striped Background!
The striped background adds plenty of eye popping amazingness to the regular bland blackness of old JNKPlat.
Other than that. It doesn't really do anything.
And, the game pretty much looks the same as it always did.
Still. It's stripes!

SUPER AMAZING NEW FEATURE!There are now wonderful springs.
The springs have in fact replaced the old Balloons.
As much as I liked the balloons, they were a little slow.
The new springs work in the same way as Sonic's. Yellow bounce you a bit, Red bounce you a bit more.
They do, however, take their time to reset to their base position, so if you're doing some time based running around, best to keep the springs ready for use!

OMG! ANOTHER AMAZING NEW FEATURE! WTF!?!There's hooks to grip onto.
Hold the hold button to hold on.
It might help you avoid a dart.
Or, you can hop off them to get up to higher places.
Use them wisely to get where you're going!

YET ANOTHER AMAZING NEW FEATURE!!!There are keys!
And, there are doors, too!
You can only hold 5 keys at a time, but there may be loads of color co-ordinated doors!
Can you find all the keys, to get through all the doors!?
Can all the doors be unlocked?
Are there enough keys!?
PANTS WETTINGLY AMAZING NEW FEATURE!!!<img src="http://AGameAWeek.com/dsdev/plat-door2.png"> <img src="http://AGameAWeek.com/dsdev/plat-door3.png">
Plungers open and close the wonderfully generic orange blocks.
They slowly release again, so run for your life!
There's places to go, gems to collect, and exits to exit.
So push the plunger, head for a ladder, and get out whilst you can!
Less Amazing New FeatureIt's got a level editor.
