Snacks and spikes are falling from the sky!

How to Play

You, Aspen, must run around dodging the falling spike balls and scoffing the delectable foodstuffs.

  • Eat 5 snacks to clear a round. Try to grab 5 of the same grub in a row for a perfect bonus!

  • Keep an eye out for the rare heart and star power-ups. Snag a star to gain temporary invincibility for the round or capture a heart for an extra life!

  • Get hurt by the spike balls and you lose a life. Get hit enough times though, and your game is over!


Snack Scoffer was created solely by Niall Chandler in the Pico-8 game engine. I had a lot of fun making the game, learning many things about game development and programming in the process.
If you have any feedback about the game, then by all means give it. I'd love to hear it, and I'd love to thank you so much for playing my game.

Pub Night

Cart #pub_night_1-0 | 2021-07-17 | Code ▽ | Embed ▽ | License: CC4-BY-NC-SA

This game was my submission for the GMTK Game Jam 2021. I was suffering from a bad cold during the jam, so I unfortunately wasn't able to make anything that good. Nevertheless, I'm glad I at least made something.

Originally, I only uploaded this to by itch page (https://niall-chandler-games.itch.io/) as I honestly forgot to upload it here :/

I hope at least you like it, at least a little. It's not much, but I did try.
Maybe you'll relate to wanting to join your friends in a pub...

Find the jewel at the bottom of the ocean, before you drown!

This game for the Ludum Dare 48 Jam. The jam's was 'Deeper and deeper', so I made the game about swimming deep into an ocean cave system to try and obtain a jewel before you run out of breath.

Features include: Regular & hard mode, 5 different language options (partly google translated so forgive any incorrect grammar in non-English languages), and 3 levels of spikes & old naval mines.

Also playable on itch: https://niall-chandler.itch.io/jewellery-journey

Golden Goblet

Cart #goldengoblet-1 | 2020-12-24 | Code ▽ | Embed ▽ | License: CC4-BY-NC-SA

This is my entry for the #ToyBoxJam 2020! The idea is that we're given specific sprites to make a game with in Pico-8 in less than 2 and 1/2 weeks.
I made this in one week. It's a simple platformer. Have fun!


You are Ninjoe, a ninja from Meadow Village. One day, your friend Adam falls ill with an unknown illness.
The village elder suggests you journey to acquire the Golden Goblet of Legend, said to cure those who drink from it of any and all sickness!
The elder claims the goblet is located in an underground palace engulfed by the Primeval Forest.
It is a dangerous place. No one who has journeyed to the palace of the goblet has ever returned!
Good luck, and return soon... else you may not get back in time to save your friend.

The third of 4 levels - Primeval Forest - is now complete! I'm quite proud of this one, and I especially like the little puzzle at the end. Just one more level to go before my little platformer is done!
