Instead, you must create pathways between key points using the rooms that you collect as you explore.</p> <p>Rooms are divided by difficulty, so you decide how challenging the game will be by creating your own paths to move around the world. The more you explore and add rooms to your collection, the more choice you have when designing your routes.</p> <h2>Creating a Path</h2> <img style="" border=0 src="" alt="" /> <p>Press the up arrow in front of the monitor to access the map system.</p> <img style="" border=0 src="" alt="" /> <p>From this screen you can see the rooms you have obtained. If you select one of the yellow rooms and press the Z key, you can then place that room onto the minimap.</p> <img style="" border=0 src="" alt="" /> <p>Place a few rooms onto the minimap to connect two areas. Aim to reach the red dot room on the right-hand side of the map!</p> <h2>Controls</h2> <p><strong>Arrow keys</strong> - Move your character / Choose options in the map system.</p> <p><strong>Z key</strong> - Jump / Select an option in the map system.</p> <p><strong>X key</strong> - Shoot / Cancel an option in the map system.</p> Fri, 22 Mar 2019 22:05:30 UTC Terry the Turtle's Big Adventure <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=61255#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_terry_the_turtle-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=61255#p"> terry_the_turtle</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=30435"> Mush</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=61255#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>Terry the Turtle carries his house on his back, but what makes a house a home?

Below are some of the items you will be able to find.</p> <p>You may find other items during your adventure. It's down to you to figure out how to use them!</p> <h3><img style="" border=0 src="" alt="" /> Sword</h3> <p>You start the game with this item. It's a good weapon for dealing with enemies. You can even swing it while moving!</p> <h3><img style="" border=0 src="" alt="" /> Bow and Arrows</h3> <p>This item can be used to attack enemies from a distance. If you hold the button down, you can move around before you shoot the arrow. It can also be used to hit switches from further away. You won't ever run out of arrows, so you can use as many as you like.</p> <h3><img style="" border=0 src="" alt="" /> Bombs</h3> <p>This item can be used to break cracked rocks. It's also a powerful weapon! A bomb will explode a short while after it is placed. You won't ever run out of bombs, but you will need to wait a little bit after using one before you can place another. It's not possible to hurt yourself with a bomb, so there's no need worry about that.</p> <h3><img style="" border=0 src="" alt="" /> Teleport Rod</h3> <p>This magical item will teleport you to its tip when you release the button. It is not possible to teleport into solid objects. An image will appear when you hold the button down to show you where you will warp to. It will be green when it is possible to warp.</p> <h3><img style="" border=0 src="" alt="" /> Potion of Life</h3> <p>When you find one of these potions, your maximum life will increase. As a bonus, your current life will be refilled.</p> <h3><img style="" border=0 src="" alt="" /> Key</h3> <p>These keys are required to open the gates blocking your way to the Book of Truth. You will need one key for each gate.</p> <h2>Objects and Obstacles</h2> <p>The world is full of interesting objects and obstacles. Here are some of the things you may encounter:</p> <h3><img style="" border=0 src="" alt="" /> Treasure Chests</h3> <p>You can open a treasure chest by approaching it from below. Who knows what's inside?</p> <h3><img style="" border=0 src="" alt="" /> Blue Switch and Moving Blocks</h3> <p>When you hit a blue switch with one of your items, it will cause all of the moving blocks to change positions. When a block is raised, you won't be able to walk past it. Each blue switch will affect all blocks in the game, so try to plan ahead.</p> <h3><img style="" border=0 src="" alt="" /> Orange Switch</h3> <p>When you hit an orange switch with one of your items, it cause something to happen nearby.</p> <h3><img style="" border=0 src="" alt="" /> Gate</h3> <p>These gates will block your way to the Book of Truth. Each one requires a key to open it.</p> <h3><img style="" border=0 src="" alt="" /> Fusion Altar</h3> <p>This mysterious altar is crucial to completing the game. It can be used to enhance the functionality of your items. After you have found it, you will need to visit it multiple times to be able to reach the Book of Truth. Its strange power can be used by approaching it from below.</p> <h2>Tips and Advice</h2> <ul> <li> <p><strong>Make good use of your items</strong><br /> When you get a new item, try it out so that you know what it does. Think about places you have seen where you might be able to use that new item!</p> </li> <li> <p><strong>The world can be confusing</strong><br /> One of the biggest challenges in this game can be figuring out where everything else is in relation to each other. If you're struggling to remember where everything is, consider drawing a map as you explore.</p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Take note of locked treasure chests</strong><br /> Sometimes you'll see a treasure chest that you cannot obtain with your current equipment. There's likely something important in there, so make sure you remember to come back for it later!</p> </li> <li><strong>Death is not the end</strong><br /> If your life reaches 0, you will be returned to the game's starting point. You'll get to keep everything you've obtained though, so don't feel disheartened! If you're finding one place too difficult, try going somewhere else and coming back later.</li> </ul> <p>Good luck on your quest!</p> Thu, 27 Dec 2018 22:43:32 UTC Little Dragon Adventure <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=53896#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico53895.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=53896#p"> Little Dragon Adventure 1.0</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=30435"> Mush</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=53896#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> <br /> The evil Chiro Empire has captured all of the other Dragon Eggs!
