New name, new graphics!! ;)

 

<<<<< Poodle Jump >>>>>

 

This release is really stable and very playable. Changes:

  • starring a cute poodle dog with ears that go up & down
  • new platform types (white "disappearing" platforms and blue "moving" platforms)
  • the platforms are twice as thick
  • after you die, the game resets after you press fire (allowing you to see your end score)
  • fixed some glitches to make the gameplay better
  • speed-up of PAL version (now plays as smooth as the NTSC version)
  • no more "stacked" platforms
  • cartridge size from 4K back to 2K

The .bin files are attached here! (choose PAL or NTSC depending on your system)

Cheers!

Is there a driving controller controls option? I thought you might try to do that.

Also, I love 2k games, so this is right up my alley!

Plays like a dream! Very good update!

Definitely more fun with the moving and disappearing blocks!

 

What's the benefit of a 2k game over a 4k game?

 

I'm not much of a dog person...

...may have played around in Hack-O-Matic and brought back the D... #winkyface

This is very nice and feels VERY much like a classic VCS game. I like it better than "Doodle Jump" too; the cute puppy graphics are a nice touch and I like the looks of the slightly wider platforms.

Yeah, I kind of feel the same. These are not the final graphics for sure.

I'm working on a new (fantasy) animal that I hope people will like. And it has got a pair of antenna's, which will be animated when jumping up and down :)

Regardless of the character, the game is super fun and really smooth and fluid! You're doing an amazing job on this! Bravo! Can't wait to see what you do in future versions!

I'm still experimenting with that. Still not sure if it improves playability though...

The driving controller is *so* sensitive that I almost feel that it would make the game more difficult.

DRiving controller is fairly low actually, only about 16 ticks per revolution. A trackball has far more ticks per rotation.

 

For this game, infinite rotation isn't necessary, so Paddles would be better? EVen if it means increasing the game size to 4k for paddle support, it would be worth it. Difficulty or B/W switch could be used, or auto detection on load.

 

I noticed most paddle games are needlessly twitchy because the games only use a sixth to a quarter turn of rotation. Because of this, I've used 470kohm pots in my custom PAddle designs instead of 1M.

Maybe game variations thru the Game Select switch where you can choose Doodle, Poodle, or {antenna sprite}???

Damn, totally destroyed my live score on the show of 11k! Now I have some competition, muhahah!!

 

Technically once you hit the moving platforms the game doesn't get harder, it's definitely all in your mind. Granted, I got pretty nervous once I got near 10k and it was messing with my gameplay. Now I'll have to try and get 100k and roll over those 5 digits. :-)

 

I really like this game. icon_smile.gif

I'm certain he removed the doodle because of potential copyright issues, though modern Atari programmers like to deconstruct popular titles as more of an homage to the original and a novelty of sorts, sometimes the original's authors don't see it that way and go on the offensive.

 

Better to be safe.

In case of Three.s, I contacted the original author of the mobile game and got his OK. So sometimes this works.

Tried this out and it is fun but it will be some before I can even come close to that score from TheHobo!
