Pong (you are the ball)

Well my Ludum Dare 26 (Minimalism theme) entry is ready:

Go and check!

Or play it directly:

Can't imagine a game more minimalist than Pong as I played it for first time at a Magnavox, so my entry is some kind of pong tribute with a twisted fast paced gameplay! 

Instead of playing with the paddles to hit the ball you play with the ball trying to avoid the paddles... Hey isn't so bad as it sounds! 

Key Features of my entry: 
- Web based 
- Fast-paced gameplay (30 seconds per play) 
- Time bending effect to make the gameplay faster and more interesting 
- Minimal size (just 8kb) 
- Minimal effort :-P made in less than 8 hours just for fun 

It has been quick and funny to make, I hope someone finds it interesting to play :-)

EGP: 5 Button competition

Hi to all!

I have made my second game for Experimental Gameplay Project.

This time the theme was "5 button competition" and is just amazing, visit the  EGP site to check why.

My game is called "Crazy Fossil Fuel Racers" and is a 5 player racing game. Maybe it could look a mess at the beginning with  all that players at the same screen and place, but that's part of the gameplay. When 2 or more players drop from the race it becomes more interesting. Each race is very fast paced, so it's not a pain to wait for the next race.

Here you can download the game, as a compressed windows EXE

Here you can play it on the browser (1280x720 resolution, so probably it will fit better on fullscreen)

Update: Here you can watch it being played at the Stattbad Gallery

Thanks to OXullo for the recording it!

I hope you enjoy it!

FleaZ - My Experimental Gameplay Project "Cheap Clone" game!

For my first Experimental Gameplay Project Contribution (Cheap clones)

I have chosen to clone some clones in a satirical way...

My target games to clone is the bunch of pet simulators that are available for Nintendo ds since the boom of Nintendogs (all that games with the name of an animal+letter Z at the end).

To add some extra weirdness points to my game I have chosen my old Amstrad CPC 464 computer (over 25 years old) to run my game. The oldest hardware I have is now used to make some satire of one of the latest games (Nintendogs) of the latest console (3DS)... well something so weird must be worth the time!

The workflow has been something like this in general terms.

-Idea + flowchart + "engrish" texts.

-Graphics made on Animanatee for dsi.

-40x25pixels(3colors ) to ASCII conversion.

-Locomotive basic coding on notepad++

-Winape to test the code and generate a .wav tape sound to load it on the real CPC

-Video recording.

-Stereo 3d to anaglyph conversion.


-Uploading to Youtube, linking,etc.

-Writing this.

Well I don't want to be boring, so:

Click here to play it over Youtube as an interactive video (captions must be enabled)

Or download here to get the source code in Locomotive BASIC, a .dsk image to load run it on an emulator and a .wav audio to load it on a real CPC464 ;-)

I hope you find it funny (I have had a lot of fun making it!)
