I had so much fun coding this, it was good to work under the requirements of a game jam, it really tested my programming ability--working to a deadline. Anyway, great fun, Dragon's Playground is a top-down, free-roaming shoot'em-up where you control Azron, scourge of the realms. You must incinerate the realm, defeat wizards, elves and knights to assert true dominance over the kingdom.<br /> There are still a few lingering bugs that I would like to fix, but I am happy to share this game as part of a game jam, my first. Great fun!</p> <p>Controls:<br /> X - Breathe fire<br /> Z - Charge breath</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=38131 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=38131 Tue, 26 May 2020 00:51:42 UTC Banana Chase v2.0 <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=76571#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_difamwet-2.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=76571#p"> Banana Chase v2.1</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=41412"> extar</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=76571#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p><strong>Banana Chase</strong> is a fast-paced arcade maze game or 'collect'em up' where you are Monty, a very hungry monkey. Eat your way through 28 levels of fruit-based action as you uncover the mystery of the magical forest.</p> <img style="" border=0 src="/media/41412/banana-chase_3.gif" alt="" /> <p>&bull;Chain together combos of fruit to get the most points.<br /> &bull;Don't eat mushrooms!<br /> &bull;Two difficulties, Easy and Hard.<br /> &bull;Five different types of fruit to eat.<br /> &bull;Three different enemies, learn the tricks and tactics to circumvent them.<br /> &bull;28 levels, explore the magic forest and complete the wizard's quest.<br /> &bull;Complete the game in the fastest time.</p> <p>X - Advance chat, hide UI<br /> Z - Level skip</p> <p>This started off life as a very simple demo, and my first attempt at making a Pico-8 game. I didn't like leaving it unfinished, so I've been steadily adding to it on and off over the last few months.</p> <p>I really admire speedrunning, so I tried to make this game as speedrun friendly as possible.</p> <p>I didn't really have any particular inspiration in mind when making the game. I teach programming in schools with Scratch and it was kind of based on one of the games I make in that. It ended up kind of Pac-Man-esque, in that you collect things and are in a kind of maze, but that's a bit of a stretch.</p> <p>7,858 &lt;s&gt;7,540&lt;/s&gt; tokens</p> <p> <table><tr><td width=32> <img src="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/gfxc/41412_0.png" width=32 height=32> </td> <td valign=bottom> <a style="cursor:pointer;font-size:8pt" onclick=' var el = document.getElementById("gfxcode_41412_0"); if (el.style.display == "none") el.style.display = ""; else el.style.display = "none"; microAjax("https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/gfxc/41412_0.txt", function (retdata){ var el = document.getElementById("gfxcode_41412_0"); el.innerHTML = retdata; el.focus(); el.select(); } ); '> [8x8]</a> </td></tr> <tr><td colspan=2> <textarea rows=3 class=lexinput id="gfxcode_41412_0" style="width:640px;background-color:#fed;display:none;overflow:hidden; font-size:6pt;"></textarea> </td> </tr> </table> </p> <p>v2.1 - After some great feedback (thanks <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=32"> @jeb</a>!) I've made some changes I was kicking myself for not thinking of.<br /> &bull;Added a walking animation for the monkey<br /> &bull;Added a third difficulty, so now there's Easy - 125pts per level, Normal - 250pts and Hard - 500pts. You can easily get through easy (pun intended) in under fifteen minutes.<br /> &bull;Made a bunch of minor adjustments to map layouts, there shouldn't be such a big difficulty spike in the mid-game now.<br /> &bull;Fruit should no longer appear directly adjacent to or on top of the monkey.

Fight 14 different enemies with 4 weapons over 3 levels of space action.
