#4155122 Sheep It Up!

Posted by cimmerian on Sun Nov 11, 2018 6:21 PM

Thanks drludos, it is a very hard game and I was really amazed I was able to get to 25 points! Thanks for creating the game. :-)

 

Congrats @bluswimmer for 27, it's very good! I think you'll bet me very soon! icon_smile.gif

 

Thanks @cimmerian for reviewing the game in the Zero Page Homebrew show.

I just watched the recording, and it's always nice and motivating to see other people enjoy a game you made! icon_smile.gif

 

And congrats on your 25 points highscore!

I know the game is difficult - I think I was inspired by Flappy Bird (a game that I enjoyed a lot back in 2013) on that point.

My goal was to make players really happy of every score point they earn icon_smile.gif.

#4153372 Railslider WIP

You're so welcome, it's was pretty crazy trying to figure out the game without any instructions. We'll have to give it another go on the show when you make the next update to the game as the graphics as frenetic action is really amazing. It's such a huge accomplishment to create a game this good on your first go on the 2600 and to create something that looks custom made in assembly with bB!!

 

Looking forward to updates and to play it again now that we know a little more than just randomly shooting at everything we see, hahah!
