AGBIC2018 Bloom
« on: September 01, 2018, 12:24:10 PM »
OK. So while there was a break between competitions. I thought I'd have a go at AGBIC2018 (A Game By Its Cover)
https://itch.io/jam/a-game-by-its-cover-2018

I chose the cart: Bloom

Where It's Bloom Season!
Play as Squik, a mouse florist matching and arranging colorful flowers in this fast pace puzzle game.

I'm not quite finished, but I got a bit carried away  :-X

Here's the menu screen

2600, NES and Arcade. Does that mean you've done three versions of the same game to represent the different platforms?

As a side note, I've never heard of Bloom :P
Until the next time...

Never heard of Bloom either. Is it an early Match 3 or something?

there was only one arcade machine made.


But Shirley you all remember the faithful 2600 version


And the ever popular NES version that sold (crap) loads?

Think I stated it somewhere else (PM or so?) but some sprites are high-res (flower-stem and horizontal line to split top and body of the wooden boxes/crates).
Think parts of the glass-door are also pretty high res compared to the other stuff. Metallic railing looks coooool  but mixes high and lowres too. Not to talk about the "mice life" indicator.
Else it looks....gorgeous.


bye

Help mouse Florist Squik collect flower, avoiding worms and the cat and the falling crates!

For both Windows and MacOS featuring fast retro action. Play the arcade, the NES or the vintage Atari 2600 version


And all with glorious chip tunes and chip synth FX!
