It's another retreading of the Microbes formula, except without any Microbes, because they're never quite fun enough.
Instead, just you and a petri-dish full of colourful neon worm creatures.
Note : May run like shit on anything other than a super-computer!!!

You can Play this in GotoJSE.

Nice! I wonder how well it controls with an analog stick with an kind of move to stick angle type thing.

That means digging out a controller 😟

Nah.. Turn on the onscreen controls and use your mouse inside the onscreen thumbpad circle! (You can still use the keyboard fire button whilst doing that)

.. The hardest hurdle will be figuring out my godawful code!
You'll want to remove the gx/panggo code, set a pangto variable to the direction of the controller, and then WrapTo pang to pangto with a limit on its speed.

Eeeeasy!!

Battle Boats



View on YouTube

Initially started as a MindPoke "Belowdecks" game, it evolved so it wasn't entirely like Rychan's game, and then I remembered that old lovely Boat sprite style that I did a couple of years ago, and.. well, it ended up not being anything about "Belowdecks", in the end!
Aw well.

A nice and gentle little deadly game of piracy.
Blow up the enemy and claim all their riches.

You can Play Battle Boats here in the Browsercade.

Love the boat sprite and it is a fun game.

The boat is made up of a bunch of layers of an identical flat boat sprite over and over, to give a vague 3D effect.
I've done this before, in SmileBASIC, and a quick test in Blitz, but I don't think I ever made an "AGameAWeek Proper" with it.

Was a boat game I had wanted to make, that went through a lot of mental revisions over the years. Might see if I can find the 3D model I think I repurchased in TN (I should have my TN backups) and do a 3D version...

That's a great way of doing it.

A very nice game, the penguin makes a refreshing change from Platdude (no an insult). Also quite trickey to controls, which adds to the "no instantly good at it" factor.

Top tip for youtube thumbnails.
Take screenshot, crop it, ask StableDiffusion to re-render it "Pixar style"
Job done!

Elegant Eaglephant


View on YouTube

This year I've been doing Double-Same-Initial titles, (other than the Foldapuz quickies) so this week was the letter E.
I sat and pondered for a while.
Elegant is a nice word, but should it be an Elegant Eagle, or an Elegant Elephant..?
And I wondered, and I pondered and I gave up and smushed them together.

Help Eaglephant collect as many Mutant Monkey Nuts as you can, by squirting the evil hats off them, and then gobbling them up.

You can Play Elegant Eaglephant in the Browsercade

Now I have to make a game that has two F-words in it's title without swearing..
Eeek!
