sooo i may be making a version of Bonzi Buddy for the pico-8
the image below shows my progress
the BONZI BUDDY ICON will move him back in postion
the BANANA icon will feed the purple gorilla
the MUSIC icon will make BB sing a song
and the SOUND icon will toggle the music
maybe more idk.
Bonzi Buddy if I remember correctly was one of the worst viruses and spyware to ever hit a PC of all time - going so far as to amass personal data from children unauthorized by parents.
While I don't think you can do too much damage in PICO, SS, the history of its carnage and many users feelings for the hated gorilla remain unchanged.
Bonzi just struck my interest. and the functions it would have seem like a good coding exercise and it could be a program where instead of silly jokes and adware a informational guide with things strait from the manual (because that will give me a reason to read the dang thing)
Well ... alright. But if you just want a toon ape, there are two I can remember from cartoon history.
Grape Ape and Magilla Gorilla.
Failing that, wish you the best. Who knows, maybe you'll turn the opinion around on the historical icon.
