Although this game has been finished for well over a year, I've only remembered to upload it just now in 2024 😅 Enjoy!</p> <h2>Controls</h2> <p><em>Astrotype</em> takes a somewhat non-conventional approach to controls- all controls in this game are executed by simply typing words, and is explained in the cartridge!</p> <p><em><a href="">You can read more about the game here on its page</a></em></p> <p><img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="/media/67797/LWHei9.gif" alt="" /> <img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="/media/67797/Q_SPN6.gif" alt="" /></p> Wed, 03 Jan 2024 07:16:51 UTC Sprout <h1><em>Sprout</em></h1> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=131537#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_sprout_jam_edition-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=131537#p"> Sprout</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=67797"> alexhlocke</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=131537#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <h2><em>Sprout</em> is a short platformer I made for <em>Jame Game 29</em> that won first place!</h2> <img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="/media/67797/sprout_14.gif" alt="" /> <h2>About</h2> <p>The theme of the jam was <em>falling</em> and the required special object was <em>bean</em>. In <em>Sprout</em>, the protagonist falls down into the earth and must use his magic beans to traverse the depths until he reaches the core. He may also collect some optional core pieces along the way!</p> <p>It was made in 3 days so it's far from perfect; There are a couple of bugs that never got ironed out and things that should be polished or changed, but oh well, that's how jams go!</p> <p><a href=""> page</a><br /> <a href="">Jame Gam #29</a></p> <h2>Controls</h2> <ul> <li>Arrow keys to move / look up &amp; down</li> <li>X - jump</li> <li>Z - throw bean</li> <li>Z while holding down - Spring jump</li> <li>Z while holding up - Throw bean up to make vine</li> </ul> <img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="/media/67797/sprout_13.gif" alt="" /> Sun, 02 Jul 2023 00:55:42 UTC Busy Bee <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=126080#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_busybee-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=126080#p"> busybee</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=67797"> alexhlocke</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=126080#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>This is a little game I made for the 2022 Github Game Off Jam, forgot to post it anywhere other than itch!<br /> Here's the itch page as well <a href=""></a><br /> It's a pretty simple little high score based game, I didn't have too much time to do anything too crazy. I think the game was made in under a day, but honestly I don't really remember haha. Enjoy!</p> Mon, 20 Feb 2023 09:57:18 UTC
