After a long night of coding, I only got about 10 hours of sleep last night.
I was trying to free up some more room in the cranberry game. I noticed that I was using the same code over and over again. But deleting that extra code meant changing the way "craig" looked on the title screen. It now looks like this:
All other efforts done this morning yielded stuff that looked like crap with blank lines in between the red. So I'm going with this. I tried to sleep at about 11 p.m. At that point, I had to delete the decreasing health when you hit the tree code. But I decided there must be a way that I could keep that in since it was in the last version. So I worked and worked at I thought I had it working and went to bed. Finally fell asleep at 12:30 a.m. Woke up and looked at my game. As it turned out there was a bug in the tree displaying code. So I had to fix that. NOW I'm ready to insert some more stuff into the game. But I don't want to now. So probably tomorrow.
I am planning on making a ghost follow you around on a screen. Why a ghost? Because ghosts can go through stuff and so I don't have to worry about it hitting the playfield. I guess Craig is in a haunted forest.
I want some more games for my Saturn. They had "Pandemonium" but it was $60. Is it rare on the Saturn or something? I would really love a 2d Mario-style platform game.
