About:

Zap-bot is an homage to the old Gameboy era cheap SBC (single board computer) handleds and their stupid little games, like the Classic and Brick Brick game!

This is a port of the shooter line filler game inside that. Your goal is to clear the lines for as long as you can last!

Controls:

Move with arrow keys left and right.

Shoot with X.

This game was made for the Minigame A Month April 2024 for theme Farming!

Gameplay:

Use your tools to manipulate the field, then harvest with as many points as you can.

⬅️⬇️⬆️➡️

❎: X

🅾️: C or Y/Z

When harvesting you move along in a straight line if you have the same veggies in that direction and stop before stepping on a different one.

Harvesting a veggie gives 1 point +1 for each previous same vegetable.

Combo and movement stops on a new vegetable in the direction, or upon turning into a new direction!

Tools

  • Shovel: Let's you swap two rows or columns with each other.
  • Pitchfork: moves row/colum left-right-up-down
  • Bomb: Upon stepping on, it harvests all neighbouring tiles (replaces one where you move so it doesn't break cool lines)
  • Watering can: Replaces a 3x3 area with a crop randomly selected from that area (weighted by occourance)

Seeds:

After completing a stage (or on pressing Enter) you can view the seed of the current page. Note that number down and share it with a friend. In the Load Field menu you can enter the seed and race on who can achieve more points on the same map, with the same tools!
Development:

You can read the devlogs and watch the full development VODS if you are intersted in things like that!

1k Defender

1k Defender is a little shmup made with 957 compressed bytes inside PICO-8!

This project was born from a failed submission to 1k jam 2022 and continuing it for the 2023 edition. Since I didn't felt it was eligible for the jam, I never uploaded it to it. A while ago I remembered it, so I spiced it up with a label and some sfx, but only those so it is a tad more enjoyable to play. We got a gameplay loop as well!

You can also check it out the raw one on GistHub:

https://gist.github.com/Achie72/076859ce7fe17335fdb49ca7790d427b

Gameplay:

Shoot the invading forces down to protect your planet. You need to restock on bullets from time to time in the depot (the up icon on the bottom left)

Controls:

One Last Swing

This project is my entry for the Samurai Game Jam 2024 with subtheme: Luck! 🍀
Story:

Patrolling the border you get a message about enemy groups flooding your territory. Now it is up to you to make it back home and ensure the safety of your family!

Controls:

Use X to unsheathe your sword before the clash. If you do not have it out, you will automatically lose. Use ⬇️⬆️ to move your sword between the 3 stances of: High, Mid and Low.

The enemy will attack after a certain time has elapsed, just after they step back! Take that moment to adjust your stance to achieve victory!

Gameplay:

Beat 10 levels to make it back home, and if you feel like it, push your luck further into the endless challenge.

One Last Swing is a Rock-Paper-Scissor like dueling game, where you need to choose the correct stand to overcome your opponents, to regain your honor and to make it back home.

High stance beats middle, middle stance beats low and low stance beats high!

High > Mid > Low > High

Each opponent is part of an enemy unit, marked by their flags and clothing colors. Enemy units are trained the same, so use your experience to determine how they are gonna swing.

The game also takes inspiration from Punch Out, so keep your eyes peeled for clues that help you figure out things faster!

Ko-fi Articles:

If you are interested in the development process, I have several articles outlining code examples and thought processes used in the game!

The game development was also streamed, so you can jump into VODs if that is to your liking!

Kumatori Panic!

This game is an entry for the A Game By Its Cover 2023 jam! Original famicart design is Kumatori Panic! by Eat Sleep Meep!

Check their cart and other works out!

Versions:

0.1 - Jam version released for AGBIC 2023
0.2 - Fix Endless loop bug (hopefully).

Gameplay

Kumatori Panic! is a combination of Sokoban type entity pushing and Bejeweled like color matching. Gather all the chicken before they ran off! Connect 3 or more matching ones to gather them into the coop!

Bump into the chickens from a direction to push them, if nothing is in the direction you are pushing.

Pushing Chicks costs energy. Regain energy by matching 3 or more chicks, the more the merrier!

You can pick chicks up, but that and putting them down cost 1 energy. Carrying a chick costs 1 energy per step.

You CANNOT complete a match by placing a chick from carrying, you HAVE TO PUSH THEM TO THEIR PLACE! No easy skip for ya, let the push puzzle guide you! (Red chicks are friends though!)

note:

At the moment the game doesn’t see an option to crack multiple eggs with one match. It will generate enough on start, but during the run if you do not match them individually the game could false end you! Hit restart and match eggs one-by-one if that happens. The game does not generate maps it sees unsolvable.

Controls:

Meet the Chicks:

Yellow - They are your everyday chicks, sitting around, waiting to be collected.

Green - They are hyperactive and will move around on their own on the map! They cannot macth by themself moving this way.

Blue - Their secret is the power of duplication! At each of the third pushes they duplicate into a neighbouring tile! They cannot macth by themself moving this way.

Red - They have a sticky personally that everyone wants to follow!

Pink - Created upon matching 4 chicks, they are the jokers of the garden! Can match to any other color!

White - Created upon matching 5 or more chicks! The big brother of the pink chicks, they can be pushed around freely!

Meet the Eggs:

The future of the garden! Next to gathering all chicks you will have to hatch all eggs as well! Match other chicks next to them to hatch a chick indicated by the color out of them! Eggs cannot be pushed or picked up! Bear hands are not delicate enough for eggs!

General Idea

Create and oldschool rogue-like feel game.

Start: C/Z/Y (builtin differs on keyboard layouts, the button next to 'x')

Move with: Arrows, you can step twice while wolves moves once.

Skip step: X

Collect all carrots to proceed to the next level. Avoid wolves, by hiding in the rabbit holes. You can step twice, while wolves step one.

If they can't see you, they are dark red, and start to wander around. If the can, they turn bright red, and start to chase you down. They can't eat you, while you are in a rabbit hole.

Difficulty goes up by reached levels and steps taken, so plan ahead!

Also on Github

There is still much to left, but this was my defined MVP

Hi there all!
I'm fairly new to the engine, and for now, i just have one question, that could be helpful for me.
Is it possible, to export an .html file, in which your games are exported like in the BSS section, only multiple of them. If i'm not clear, i'm looking for a vertical column of playable games in one .html file sou you can just press the play button and play. Is it possible? How can someone do it?
My main goal is to set up my github page in a way, that you can play all the pushed games in the repo. Not necessarily automated, little hand editing is fine with me.
Thanks in advance!
