Alpha Collexion – Roller Runner

Roller Runner

Concept
A semi-board-game type collect-em-up. Grab the gummies, and avoid the ants.

Controls
Button to roll, Move to Move.

Comments
It’s a bit slow, and the dice-movement might’ve been better if I just gave the player 6-spaces per round, instead of leaving it up to the dice.
But it kinda works.
I generally have a rule of not making Board-Game style games, because they tend not to work very well.
.. Case in point!
If redone, I’d probably start it off on level 6, just so it starts off at a harder pace.

FACT : This is a remake of the first game I ever coded! Except, way back on the Amstrad CPC it looked a lot less interesting!

Quriously Qubic

Concept
Light up the arena, by hopping on the Qubes.

Controls
Hopefully not too baffling..

Comments
The engine worked out nicely, especially since I managed to code this entire game in just a few short hours.
The “TNT” doesn’t actually kill the player, at all. It looks and feels like it probably should, but it doesn’t!
Might play better with “proper” enemies, but for part of an advent calendar, you can’t complain.

Out of all the games in the collexion, this is my favourite. (Well, this and another one, but that’s for later!)
Expect to see more of this, reamde, at a later date!

Concept
This ain’t no Mummy! Run around each of the boxes in the grid, collecting the bubbles, to open each box. Escape using the ring!

Comments
This game does exactly what it set out to do!
Not sure the sudden appearance of a ring is obvious enough to the player, as the end-of-level thing…
But otherwise the game works as expected. Not a whole lot you can do with Oh Mummy, really!

Concept

Controls

Comments
I came up with this idea about 6 months ago, but never got around to trying it out.
It’s not a bad concept, and occasionally gets you thinking, but I feel like it still needs something a little extra, to get the brain-cells flowing a little faster.
I may revisit this game, later.
For what it’s worth, I know a lot of people won’t enjoy this game, but I like it :D

Comments
This is “The other rubbish game” in the collection, I’m afraid.
Another game that really could’ve done with better balancing.
Once you hit level 3 or 4, the game starts to get trickier, but up until then it’s quite a snoozefest.
I could probably have also done with some decent AI!

Concept

Comments
Another game that took a bit of a nose-dive in the last few minutes.
Started off well enough, and had good intentions, but lazily dropped off towards the end.
I tried my best to balance this game, but it’s occasionally too tough for it’s own good.
A nice enough concept, but might be better if done with proper levels instead of being random.

Comments
BeMani without the Be!
Fairly complex, and .. I’m not sure if it ends up going too fast for it’s own good..
But it’s a music game without music, and as far as those go, it does a pretty decent job.

Concept
Float around and shoot the baddies

Controls
Left and right, Button A to shoot, Button B or Up to Jetpac!

Comments
A rather simplistic take on JetPac, but without any actual goal!
Would it have been better if I’d gone the whole hog and made it level-based with rocket parts to collect?
I’m not sure.
I enjoyed the game enough, this far along, so left it as it was.

Ice Incident

Concept
Jump on the Couch…

Controls

Comments
I initially wanted this game to be a lot like “Hen Hopping”, but somewhere along the way, it went a bit wrong.
I’m not a fan of this game.
Out of all 26 games in this collection, this is the one I’d scrap, and replace with something entirely different.
Time wasn’t on my side.
