Help him out by finding the nearest <strong>pool of water</strong> as soon as possible, but not without <strong>collecting some coin</strong> on the way there.</p> <h3>How to Play:</h3> <ul> <li>Boomby <strong>explodes (aka: jumps)</strong> every <strong>2 second</strong>s. Keep track of the timebar at the bottom of the screen, time your moves right.</li> <li>There are <strong>multiple routes</strong> to the pool, <strong>keep exploring</strong> if you get stuck or frustrated at a section of the map.</li> <li><strong>Trampolines</strong> are a tricky, patience pays off. Try not to rush out of the first explosion after touching one. After the first explosion, the bounce rhythm balances out.</li> <li>There are <strong>3 bomb &quot;keys&quot; (red, green, blue</strong>). These allow you to <strong>destroy colored bricks</strong>.</li> <li><strong>Yellow Coins:</strong> $1, <strong>Platinum Coins:</strong> $5, <strong>Green Coins:</strong> $20</li> <li>The only purpose of <strong>crouching</strong> is to move the camera down (and to look cute, actually).</li> </ul> <h3>Challenges:</h3> <ul> <li>How fast can you reach the pool?</li> <li>How much money can you collect in one go?</li> <li>Can you reach the pool without getting the colored bomb keys?</li> </ul> <h3>Additional Notes:</h3> <ul> <li>This game was made in about a week for itch.io's LOWREZJAM 2020.</li> <li>I tried my best to prevent the player from being in a stuck situation, but if you find a case, please let me know.</li> <li>Any other feedback is greatly appreciated.</li> </ul> <h3>Update:</h3> <ul> <li>8/22/2020 - Small post-jam polish pass: added a bass line to the music and a few sound effects that felt missing from the jam version.</li> </ul> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=39257 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=39257 Mon, 17 Aug 2020 05:29:48 UTC Super Contra Hot <p><center><br /> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=69629#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_supercontrahot-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=69629#p"> Super Contra Hot</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=38895"> picoter8</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=69629#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> <br /> </center></p> <p>Controls:</p> <ul> <li>arrow keys: movement</li> <li>z: jumping</li> <li>x: shooting</li> </ul> <p>Time slows down drastically when not moving, use that strategically against the enemy.</p> <p>I had plans to make more levels but I ran out of time (no surprises there).
