It takes hex data just like you'd see in the original game, and renders it exactly like the game would. I give an example of World 1-1 here, but I've tested this with the entirety of the first two worlds and a few of the bonus areas.

Bubbles of many colors come floating upward. You must fit the Bubble Clusters together so four or more Bubbles of the same color touch one another. When four or more of the same colored bubbles press together, the pressure inside the Bubbles increases causing them to pop.</p> <p>Keep the bubbles bursting since in every space a Bubble gets stuck there is one less place to put the next Bubble Cluster, and they just keep coming. If you can't pop the Bubbles fast enough, the cave fulls up, and the game will end.</p> <p>It sounds easy, right? Get read to enjoy all 24 mind-blowing stages of bubble popping excitement!</p> <h2>Controls</h2> <ul> <li>D-PAD: Moves the rising Bubble Cluster RIGHT or LEFT, and controls how fast the Bubble Cluster floats up. Pushing DOWN will release a Magic Bubble (see below).</li> <li>Z/C/N: Turns the Bubble Cluster around horizontally (turns left to right).</li> <li>X/V/M: Flips the Bubble Cluster vertically (rotates upside down).</li> </ul> <h3>Air Pockets</h3> <p>Air Pockets are formed in the empty spaces between Bubbles that don't fit perfectly. One misplaced bubble can cause many Air Pockets, and Air Pockets take up as much space as Bubbles. One way to get rid of Air Pockets is to remove all the Bubbles below it and expose the Air Pocket to open water. When this is done the Air Pocket will dissolve.</p> <p>If you're not careful Air Pockets will fill the screen faster than Bubble Clusters. Luckily, you can slide Bubbles into Air Pockets. When you pop the Bubbles you will also get rid of the Air Pockets.</p> <h3>Mystic Pearl</h3> <p>Sometimes during game play a Mystic Pearl will be part of a Bubble Cluster. The glow of the Mystic Pearl has magical powers and will change the color of the Bubbles around it to a single color.</p> <p>Try to maneuver the Bubble Cluster so when the energies of the Mystic Pearl are released it will affect as many Bubbles as possible.</p> <p>Plan the position of the Mystic Pearl carefully. The number of Bubbles popped can increase or decrease depending on the color the surrounding Bubbles change to.</p> <h3>Magic Bubbles</h3> <p>Every time you pop a Letter Bubble the letter will be placed in the Magic Window at the top of the screen. After you have collected all the letters needed to spell the word MAGIC, you will receive 1 Magic Bubble. To release a Magic Bubble hold down on the D-Pad.</p> <p>When a Magic Bubble is released it will float motionless at the bottom of the screen until the Bubble Cluster has settled.</p> <p>The first thing a Magic Bubble does is remove all Air Pockets. This will cause all Bubbles to settle and should cause some Bubbles to pop. The remaining Bubbles will begin to pulsate with energy and change colors. If you're lucky this will cause even more Bubbles to pop.</p> <p>There is no indication on screen for Magic Bubbles. It's up to you to remember how many you have collected.</p> <h2>Easter Egg</h2> <p>Only do this if you are 18 or older (I'm serious).<br /> <div><div><input type="button" value=" Show " onClick="if (this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display != '') { this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display = ''; this.innerText = ''; this.value = ' Hide '; } else { this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display = 'none'; this.innerText = ''; this.value = ' Show '; }"></div><div><div style="display: none;"><br /> Hold Z/C/N at the title screen, and then press ENTER/P to pause.

Based on <a href="https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/91337413/">a game I made</a> for a programming competition at <a href="https://codewalr.us/">codewalr.us</a>, this game lets you play as the mascot of the website, Walrii, as he flies through the sky. Collect fish, rack up points, and watch out for the spike mines!</p> <p>There are three modes: Easy, Normal, and Hard. Try your hand at each of them, and go for the highest score!</p> <ul> <li>Easy: Obstacles always move straight. Fish give you 10 points, and running into a spike mine means death.</li> <li>Normal: Obstacles can move straight, or in a wave-like pattern. Once again, fish give you 10 points, and running into a spike mine means death.</li> <li>Hard: This mode adds a &quot;time bar&quot; to the top of your screen. Your mission is to keep it from running out! Fish give you 10 points (and a bit of time), running into a spike mine takes away a bit of time, clocks give you 50 points (and 50% of your time), and hourglasses give you 100 points (and momentarily stop your time from going down).</li> </ul> <p>&quot;Walruses might fly unless the age of miracles is past.&quot; - Anonymous</p> <h3>Controls</h3> <ul> <li>LEFT/RIGHT: Move Walrii left and right.</li> <li>X: Flap Walrii's wings and fly!</li> </ul> <p>(To anyone saying that this kind of game belongs on the Atari 2600...<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkafJe2iA-c">I actually put it on there, too</a>. 😉)</p> <h3>Version History</h3> <p><strong>v1.1 | 2019/2/18</strong></p> <ul> <li>Fixed a bug where pressing X for one frame caused Walrii to keep flapping his wings until X is pressed again</li> </ul> <p><strong>v1.0 | 2019/2/17</strong></p> <ul> <li>Initial release</li> </ul> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=33306 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=33306 Mon, 18 Feb 2019 05:14:23 UTC Wal-Rush! v0.0.1 <p>Hey, everyone! I'm a hobbyist developer who finds the concept of a &quot;fantasy console&quot; pretty interesting, so I made a little demo based on <a href="https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/91337413/">this game I made for a programming competition for CodeWalrus</a>, which I also remade into <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkafJe2iA-c">an Atari 2600 game</a>. I hope it looks and plays alright!</p> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=61865#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_dishibitu-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=61865#p"> Wal-Rush! v0.0.1</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=35014"> JWinslow23</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=61865#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=33262 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=33262 Thu, 14 Feb 2019 00:07:01 UTC
