This game is #1...alphabetically.

 

Aaron the aardvark goes back and forth across the screen. To control him, press A. To jump while controlling him, press B. When controlling him, press C to give control of Aaron back to the computer. This is just an Easter egg for the title screen. I will make it so pressing OPTION starts the game. Well, to start the game there will be options to choose from, so it only seems fitting. The only trouble is: I have no idea for a game. I just did this the past few days because I was bored of everything else I was doing. And yes, I will add some music to the title screen when I get around to it.

 

Perhaps I will make it an "Oranges" type game where the object is to avoid stuff coming at you. Maybe not. Does anyone have a game idea they'd like to see on the Jaguar involving aardvarks?

Added a little bit of title screen music.

Thanks for the suggestions on what to make here. I think I'll make a Demon Attack/Space Invaders-like game where you shoot at stuff.

+ rotary support!
That would be epic on a Space Invaders type.

I have no Skunk or similar, so no way to check that out.

Does VirtualJaguar have rotary support? I'd like to test my game when I decide to put it in.

Not sure on game suggestions, but definitely needs avocados. Then it'll be a triple-A game.

Moved the Easter egg so now you can press B to start the game. It's lovely. Nothing much yet, though. All Aaron can do once you start is poop in the air.

Is it possible to run this on Virtual Jaguar?

 

If so, what configure settings?

 

Thank you, Chris

Yes, I test it using Virtual Jaguar. Default settings should be fine.

I added a few more sound effects and stuff. I created a web page to get all future builds of the game. It's here.

I was wondering if you took any screenshots for your game?

There's one on the website.

Minor update: There are now UFOs to shoot at. If you hit one it makes a crashing noise.

Added the beginning of a wave system. Wave 1 is the UFOs slowly go down, wave 2 is the UFO goes left and right, and wave 3 is the UFOs go down a little faster. A wave starts when the score is a multiple of 20. Right now, that's all I have so far.

At some point, I would like to have more than one UFO on screen, and have the UFOs shoot at Aaron.

Link to the game is in my signature.

When are you going to make the Jaguar version of SGWP?
