Jungler is my first cart.
I've always been a fan of Konami's Jungler (an arcade game released in 1981) which has some very interesting mechanics I've never seen elsewhere and I felt it would make for a good port to the PICO-8. This game is somewhat based on the Konami game, with some minor tweaks (no fruit, enemies appear as eggs that you can eat and you grow when you eat eggs or enemies.)
Would love opinions and suggestions, and tweaks to balance/difficulty.
Some things I may tackle in the future:
- Random maze generation (Jungler really benefits from "straightaways" and segments wider than 1.)
- Animated attract screen.
- Player-selected difficulty.
- High score tracking.
- Music (throbbing background music a-la Asteroids might be nice.)
- Improved graphics/effects.
