Game Description
It's what I imagined the pokemon game would be like, before I ever played it as a kid. It's based more on the show, than the game, and as such, is an action platformer.

Controls
Left/Right arrows to move, up to jump, and spacebar to attack.

Neat monochrome graphics. I also like that it lacks music; it gives it more of an Early PC retro feel.

Level design could use a bit mote love.

Really like the pixel art here, but the sound effects leave something to be desired; they would have been the sealing factor in making this quite an atmospheric experience. Besides a slightly floaty jump, the controls are spot on.

Cool gameboy style game, I like the graphics, sfx and music. I personally prefer space bar to jump. Good game :)

Developer

Thanks!

I've heard that from others too, spacebar to jump.

Personally, I don't think it makes sense for a number of reasons... But I'll definitely give it a try for my next few games! Thanks for the feedback.

Spacebar to jump is good since your thumb does nothing otherwise and it allows more action actions to be pressed at once. I just find it better. Even better though, controller support

Actually, it should work with a controller! I just have not been able to test it because I don't have one on my laptop.

Oh that's good, I more of meant I like to use a controller but I couldn't test it since I haven't had batteries. :)

The fact that this has nothing to do with out of place cacti makes me think it might have been developed outside of the jam? Regardless, it's fun for what it is, and I like the graphics and color scheme.

I made the game primarily for another jam, but discovered this jam was partly through after like the first day.

I thought it was really funny to put a literal "Out of place cactus" in the middle of level one, but in retrospect, I think it might have been TOO subtle.

How is this related to cactuses?

Developer

There is an out of place cactus on the first level, below the Parkbat... Is it too subtle?
