Inactive Player Animations

Recommended Posts

Can we create a list of games where the player / hero does some funny or silly animation/reaction when the human player is inactive?

 

examples

* Boulderdash

* International Karate

- Mercenary (no animation, but reactions from Benson? talking to you...)

- Sysiphos (both demo and full version)

Not sure if that counts.

In my game "Admirandus" a Pause Mode starts when the game is waiting too long, using the Players to show some animated PAUSE .

 

:D

Best Sokoban clone on the Atari 8-bit in my opinion. Too bad nobody's made it NTSC compatible yet.

I can't find this one in any of the usual suspects.. AtariMania, Fandal, atarionline.pl, XL search all come up empty.

He spelled it wrong: it's Sisyphos.

Yep! Download both versions (demo and full), if I remember correctly, they have different musics - and one of them is really good.

 

Edit: Looks like I always spell that wrong: http://ftp.pigwa.net/stuff/collections/CharlieChaplin/SNDVID/Atari Game Sounds/822 Sysiphos.mp3

I checked but couldn't recreate it but I seem to remember The Pharoah's Curse occasionally moving on it's own if you left it, but maybe that was just later levels.

Of course, how did that one slip by for so long?

 

But unlike probably all others it was annoying as hell since he'd often just jump straight off and lose a life.
