Tried this earlier today on the concerto loads up no problem. No sound and just stops after eating too many purple pickles. Have to do a repower to reset the game.
Reminds me of a couple games. What kind of gameplay ideas do you have?

Is there a BIN?

Thoughts on sound anyone?
I thought perhaps when the monster eats an item he could give an uhmmm or yum sound or maybe a chewing sound like 2600 Jawbreaker?
Perhaps the monster can briefly swell up after eating a purple pickle then make a fart sound and un-swell. Unswell? All is well that unswells.
If anyone has 7800bas compatible sounds they would like to contribute they would be welcome. Just keep in mind there is no guarantee where or if they will be used in the game.
Same goes for ideas about game play tweaks.

Many changes. Improved randomization, now starts slow and increases in speed as you play and eat items, some sound added, fixed a few bugs such as you should not see items on top of each other (aside from the purple pickle which moves faster and so will cross other sprites).
Also, gave the green pickle the most weight in the score. Still avoid the purple pickles. Eat everything else as much as you can.

I don't think the 0624 version I uploaded was functioning as I intended. Try this one instead. Not much farther along but, I have decided to start the game at a faster speed.

Cleaned up the player death animation a bit and added some sound.
This is the final update I will post here unless there are some bugs that turn up and need fixed.

LOL Sick Pickles indeed! Sign me up! Question, anyway to make the animation of the mouth/lips faster?

I am thinking a lot about this title at the moment. Not sure where that will lead.
If anyone has any comments, I would be happy to hear them.
It may be a while but, I will take a look at that.

LOL, yeah I was wondering.

What I am thinking is to eventually produce a version of Sick Pickles for physical release.
I noticed one person has been selling a 2600 program as a plastic bag with a PCB and printed label you have to cut out and apply to a cart shell you provide. If that were an option at a lower cost would anybody be interested in getting their copy of sick pickles that way?
