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!

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.

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.

Junior Jumpjet

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.

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.

Concept
Avoid the Spikes!

Controls
Movement to Move!

Comments
Another simplistic “dodge the evil things” game, but this time with far more momentum to control.
I also added ludicrously speedy obstacles to dodge, once you get past the opening bits of the level, so watch out for those!

Concept

Controls
Left and Right to turn around. Fire to hit.

Comments
Platdude Goes Golfing was a great little game that I made a few years ago, using the website PlayMyCode.com
Since then, although I keep trying to remake it, it never quite comes out as well as the original.
This time, I stripped it back to it’s basics, and it’s actually turned out much better than I thought it would.
Given more time, I’d’ve liked to have added more obstacles into the mix, as the game goes on, but .. meh, time!

Flapping Fing

Concept
Flap and Collect

Controls
Push Button to Flap!

Comments
A Flappy-Clone at F seemed almost inevitable.
I made it more of a collect-a-thon, and added that annoying “Looks collectable, but.. NO!!! It kills you!!” in a vague attempt to spice it up a bit.
It’s fairly generic, though.
Nothing much to see, here.

Exciting Encounter

Concept
Destroy as many of the enemy planes that you can.

Controls
Up, Down, Fire..

Comments
This game was fairly bland and uninteresting for quite a while.
In many ways, it’s a generic “move to dodge” game, and there’s not much point in fighting back.
Adding the “fuel” thing switched this from a generic “SpikeDislike” thing, into a more shooty game.
… Powerups! They’re handy things!!

Destructive Detonation

Concept
Blow up the dots, in the best Chain Reaction that you can.

Controls
Move around, hit fire!

Comments
This was the first game I made where I realised that .. perhaps it might’ve been better to add levels into some of these games.
Making this into something more like BoxSplodings, with lots of levels to complete, would’ve been better.
Unfortunately, having selectable levels would’ve meant having a proper titlescreen for each of the games, and I hadn’t implimented that into the menu system.
Aw well.. Live and Learn!
