Cart #pakpok-1 | 2021-10-22 | Code ▽ | Embed ▽ | License: CC4-BY-NC-SA

Left,Right to move.
Z,X to jump. Hold jump to glide.

Wanted to make something with the game-feel-onomatopoeia of "pak-pok". There's a lot of this in games (eg: Mario turtle shells) but the "pok" usually ends in death.

My last cart-game featured a lot of death so I felt like making something nice instead. But then I kinda needed spikes. Sorry. It's a little bit violent, but no one dies.

This game is built on top of the simple platformer engine I posted here: https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=35086

Thanks to the following for helping test the game: Mark Foster, Hafiz Azman, Dugan, Paul Jeffries, Martin Ferenc, German Gonzalez

This is an amazing cart ! Lots to learn both in the game and sourcecode. Never played a platformer like this before. It definitely gets my vote and star ! For both excellent gameplay and exemplary and detailed notes in your source.

This is wonderful.

Very good jump mechanic (quite novel in a way).
Would need a catchy music on top.

Stuck at level 8/11 :/

(ahah - I love the mom/kids tree function names!)

you can ride on top of bugs as well as kick them

I can't do music. If someone wants to do a minute of two-track music I'll put it in. I kinda know how to splice carts together.

Very good concept and level design. I'm not particularly a fan of 'infinite lives' but the level design is so good, I can forgive this extra layer of challenge since it does indeed require a death or two to work out the puzzles you've made.

Good work!

Really like this game!

You can get softlocked at level 10 by getting the first bug stuck on the right edge or the third bug stuck on the left edge because then they can't "die" and respawn.

I really enjoyed playing this game. Found an issue though, on level 9 a bug can get stuck behind one of the "firing" creatures and there's no way to reset it. See image:

Really loved this! A few lovely surprises and evolutions in what is possible over the course of the levels.

Thanks for making it.

P#110729 2022-04-22 19:18

my favorite level is 9/11 you get to fly through the sky (for a short time) like those pla--

This game seems to have had more thought and love put into it than some of the AAA titles they release these days. My only gripe is the lack of level music but that’s understandable. 10/10 amazing game.
