Y2:W18 - Greenie's LCD Adventure
15th December, 2009
This week has taken many twists and turns.
I started off making a nice game with a snowman, then that turned into a game with Greenie, then the new PC turned up and I spend a day or two playing with that but the whole network's down, and now I'm waiting on a new Router being delivered! blimey!
Meanwhile it's a chore getting from one system to the other, and that means I'm relying on a slightly-dodgy-not-quite-Win7-compatible edition Paintshop Pro 7 and a slightly-dodgy-not-quite-Win7-compatible edition of CoolEdit to help me make some games.
What a week!!
This week's Wednesday Workshop (#231 was to create an LCD game, so that's what I did.
Unfortunately, the need to cram everything into logical LCD cell positions (yep, they do indeed fit!) has meant the sprites have all cramped up into tiny unintelligable spaces.
So, in a slight tweak from the logicalness of the LCD's physical screen, I added the Improbability Button which makes things a bit more visible..
Aaaah, Much better!!
Take your pick, you can switch ingame, it's all the same.
The elements are placed pseudo-randomly throughout the level, so you can repeat the same quest until you're good at it! If you want to try a different set of random elements, hold a direction when you hit Z to start.
In addition, the map is mapped out in map.png. So if you get really bored, feel free to make your own.

AGAW Scoring : 18 weeks, 18 games. We're a week away from my Xmas/New Year break, so I'd better get my ass in gear if I want to keep up my ratio!! Nooooooo...!!!
