Work in Progress

ARCADE FLY HEAVEN…give it a taste! Physical gamepad recommended. There are two ‘chain-multipliers’: one for multiple flies caught in a single bite and another for flies caught within a second and a half of each other. Chain two ‘two-fers’ to make a ‘three-fer’ and so on. Hello, this is my first ever game and is a work in progress, but is pretty well polished for what it is. I used this platform to cut my teeth on programming and never had any experience with it before hand. I generally used the manual, examples, and forum posts within the LowresNX community to develop my understanding of BASIC with supplemental lessons from a recommended APPLESOFT BASIC (which is obviously a horse of a bit different color, but close enough) tutorial. I’d like to thank Timo for putting this all together- really awesome work! I always wanted to learn coding of some sort but felt I never had the time. That is, until COVID came to town and I found myself with ample time to pick it up and luckily happened upon this platform. It really helped me through some dark days. Most of this code was written on my iPhone, by a rookie; so a lot of it could use some cleaning up. Still, I tried to make it readable and adaptable if anybody wants to play around with it. The platform mechanics were developed to be smooth and playable. It’s floaty, but that’s just part of it. The ‘coyote time’ is pretty long, but again, that’s part of what makes it fun. With this project I wanted to both learn, make something fun, and have fun doing it. So far, I know that I achieved 2 out of 3, so let me know what you guys think!

Thanks! It means a lot, this has been my passion project for the past couple of months as well as a learning experience. I tried the hack-pretty wild. I was like- “how did jump break so easily?” Lol. I’ll be posting an easier version with a reset shortly. A real gamepad is definitely recommended, but it can be beaten on the touchscreen. The nests take 7 hits to drop and clear the pipe. Level cheats are stabilized: just scroll down the variables and find ‘GAMELEVEL’ and put in one less than the Gamelevel you want so that the initial level change sub loads up the correct level. There are only four so far. Thanks for playing!

This game is really nicely done

‘Hide and Reset’ version is also set to level 4 cheat.

Thanks! The difficulty should be more manageable now. I added hide-e-hole pipes either side of the flowers and the water also masks your position
