Frank the fruit fly update: August 10, 2017

Posted by atari2600land, in Frank the Fruit Fly 10 August 2017 · 304 views

I wanted to go to sleep at midnight, I really did, but I just couldn't shut my mind off. I was thinking of stuff to do instead of just laying in bed for a half-hour trying to sleep being bored. So I got up and began work on Frank the Fruit Fly again. This time I put a banana in. It replenishes health. So I thought "Why do that if he doesn't lose health to begin with?" Well, if he doesn't go in the cat's stomach acid, anyway. So I made it so the longer Frank is inside the cat's mouth, the more health he loses.
So once Frank gets out of the cat, the banana appears. To regain health, Frank must go down to the banana's lowest part. Pressing A makes Frank take a bite out of the banana. You can only take four bites out of it before Frank gets full and doesn't want to eat any more. The sound effect from munching the banana was the hardest part. After playing with various sounds for about an hour, I finally got one working that sounds like munching.

This game sounds like it is going to be fun!  Did I ask before if the alpha ROMs are posted somewhere?
