Oh no! There are vermin in the pipes!
The only solution is to send in the world's best adventurer-plumber : Mar Jelpi!

Play as Jelpi and his siblings as he goes down into the sewers to clear out all the creatures living in the slimy darkness of the sewer pipes!

This one is obviously based on an old classic.

Before the NES, Nintendo games were ported to every platform you can imagine, both officially and unofficially. (This was the Mario of my youth) So I figured I'd have a go at bringing my interpretation of this old favorite to Pico-8.

  • This game supports up to four players. Just use the directional buttons to choose your character and X to lock in your choice.

  • Once in game use left and right to move, and either button to jump.

  • Stun enemies by bumping them from underneath, and then kill them by jumping on them while they're stunned.

  • The "ZAP" button will stun every creature currently touching the ground. But be careful! Zap can only be used three times before it's empty and has to regenerate.

  • Extra Life at 5,000pts, 10,000pts, and every 10,000pts thereafter.

Before the game starts, In the cart menu there's an option to switch it to Co-Op mode. In Co-op mode, all the players pull from the same pool of lives and contribute to the same high-score. That might be more fun if one player isn't as skilled as the others and keeps being left behind.

Very well done :)

minor wish: zap background rectangle could show up how long it remains for reactivation.

As in the original, the ZAP button can be used three times until it's gone.

Then it replenishes on bonus levels, which appear every five levels.

So use it sparingly.

The left/right movement is too slippery. Please fix!

This is a masterpiece!

@StinkerB06, I'm afraid I like the slippery floors. It reminds me of the original arcade game.
But you can change it yourself! Line 536 says :

If you increase that value you'll get stickier floors.

@guanchao71, Thank you very much!

Yep, slipperiness of floor is quite accurate. Here is a STAR for you, @apLundell. And here is original to compare:
