100th Place     (4.26 / 5)
Game of the Week Winner


This was my last minute entry for the 20 events compo. There's not much to it, really.

Just guide the character along the path using the space bar, and avoid moving enemies along your way, within a time limit. The entire game uses the space bar only.

Note: I forgot to loop the music in the main game, lolz. Oh well, just hum it, I guess

I don't think the music is THAT great, but the graphics and gameplay are amazing. How simple, but yet so addictive! All all in only 20 events too?! Great game.

It does not use mode7, but viewport object

Sorry, typo... I mean Perspective object!

It's neither; it's the Perspective object.
 
Posted by Ski 10th June, 2008

Yup. Surprised how many people haven't heard of it. It's a path movement for the main player, with a perspective object on top.

Really great game! Awesome graphics, cute music and a really fun gameplay. The only thing that I would suggest would be different levels instead of only one big road because it gets boring after the 11th try.

AWESOME, tho I missed the ending because I pressed space :S might want to change that, space for moving AND space for skipping the ending is a problem

Damn this game is frustrating. Is there a button to skip the opening cinematic?

Do you feel special with gaining a GOTW?
 
Posted by Bricnic 16th June, 2008

You've said the game is 8mb, but the download is actually only 4mb. Fun game, but quite frustrating. Cool graphics and very easy to pick up and play, anyone can figure out how to press one button. Great use of 20 events, I'll bet you didn't need anywhere near 20 though, could've put that main character on a path movement, then it would only take about 8-10 events I reckon.

I don't know how people do games in 20 events, I like to have hundreds/thousands.

Great game allthough only your last run gets rated... I made it almost over to the shop then i died, tried again died at once, i was rated: roadkill... :/

Great job, great game. Just one question.

What exactly is the point of lives, other then an annoying punishment for dying 3x in a row and having to press space throughout the entire intro again..?

Never the less, I enjoyed it.

lovely game for 20 events!

some obstacles could have been a little more obvious as I sometimes found myself waiting a while to see if anything moved! plus a checkpoint system would be cool, but dont know if that could have been kept under 20 events. anyways good stuff!

Thanks Tom n_n <3

I have to say, it didn't even occur to me that you could've used path movement. Best use of it I've ever seen, for sure! Hidden so well under a charming little game. Congratulations on GOTW :]

Looks sharp, has an addictive quality to it... good job, I'd say.
 
Posted by Dave S. 16th June, 2008

I really like this game... nice graphics and effects and easy to get into (well there is only one key to press after all). My only gripe is that the intro seems to go on a bit too long. Nice work!

looks nice, but that all really.

I think they should have the opposite of this compo.
You have to have at least 3000 events and each one must have at least 5 conditions

ok i just played it, seems to me that it's a very VERY simple game with great presentation.
A few more controls could have easily been squeezed in.

Incredible graphics and simple game play, it doesn't matter to me as long as it's fun. And this game definitely is fun.

AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!! I like the use of the perspective object. I've never really thought about using it anywhere. Now you just need to remake it for not a contest and use more than 20 events, like having arrow keys to control directions, lots of levels and maybe even add height to the track to give it even more 3dness. Or you could even go further and get rid of the path movement, and make the character walk around with arrow keys and jump on stuff, kinda like an iso-3d game but from a non-isometric veiw like this game. I'm getting kinda carried away now, oh well GREAT game!!!

Great intro. Fun for 10 minutes. Fun high score system, but for the 20 event budget, Super Blob Frog delivered more.
+1 star for the events limitation.
