CLOCKHOPPER

Be a cute mouse!
Hop around the clock!
Survive!

Hickory Mouse was settling in for a warm winter’s nap on the old quiet grandfather clock, when all of a sudden, the clock went haywire! Dodge the dangerous clock hands, and grab coins to increase your multiplier and get a high score!

Controls
Left / Right: Run

Thanks for giving it a try, @2bitchuck! :)

The game is difficult i liked it

@ancake001 Thanks for giving it a try! Appreciate it. :)

small suggestion:

function ring(x,y,r,r2,c1)

    -- draw a ring comprised of
    -- multiple circles

    for i=0,r2 do
        circ(x,y,r+i+1,c1)
        circ(x+1,y,r+i+1,c1)
    end

end

and the clock has a solid border without the "pixel-holes".

@GPI Thanks for the suggestion! I left the pixel-holes intentionally, because I like how they look! But your solution is a great idea if you wanted to get a smooth look. :)

This has some great level design. Each level forces you to change your strategy, I love it.

Thanks for playing, Yopenatal! Appreciate it. :)

The game looks simple but is difficult to pass Super Mario

@orborneee That's what I was going for, so I'm glad that you felt that way. Thanks so much for giving it a try! :)

Getting 30 in Arms Race feels pretty good

Very interesting game. Such a simple concept but some of these levels are just so difficult. I cannot get past Blade Runner so can only dream of the levels ahead...

A question for those players that are managing to complete these levels:
Since the player is encouraged to move quickly to get the points multipliers is it sensible to try to create a constantly moving strategy or is it best to pause and think? I try to get some flow going but I'm not sure this is the best way to progress.

Such a simple concept but some of these levels are just so difficult. I can't get past Blade Runner.

@Verb Great job! Happy that you made it that far. :)

@phil Sorry that you're having trouble finding a strategy that works for you! For me and a few of the playtesters, the strategy was to find a consistent rhythm for each level. Some levels require constant movement to the right while others work better with constant movement to the left, and finding a consistent jump pattern for each level will help you out a lot. Hope you're able to find something that works for you!

Has anybody ever gotten a higher score than this?

P#144364 2024-03-25 03:09 ( Edited 2024-03-25 03:10)

@Caleb_the_Baleb I believe it might be the highest score yet! Thanks for posting the score! :D

P#144489 2024-03-26 03:01

creative!

@Caspian Thanks! :)

I decided to beat my high score again. I ended up more than doubling my previous high score. I think I might be making history.

I also recorded a video to prove that I'm not a hacker: www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjBgXN3gTEI

@Caleb_the_Baleb That's amazing! Your previous record inspired me to try to take back the record, but the ~3000 I accomplished is nowhere near this score! :D
