Episode description
This is the game I thought Pokemon would be. As a child, I saw the TV show before I played the game, and so when I finally got to play the game, it was completely different from what I expected. I can still imagine it vividly in my mind... and now, so can you! I've re-created the game I thought pokemon would be, based on my childhood experience with the TV Show.

Please list any pre-made art/music/other assets that you used.
None. All artwork was created by me, for this game.

Fun game! The graphics and sound feel like an older Game Boy game. I like your idea of what the Pokemon games might've been, and it's not too far off from what I'd like them to be (or at least some kind of spin-off). The gameplay was fun, controls and movement/jumping were good, and the varied enemies made it more interesting. I like that you gave the option of the three starters, and that they could evolve. One problem I ran into was that if you don't die, then you don't get enough kills to evolve to the third evolution.

Thanks! I'll give you a hint: you can make the jump in the begining of cave, it's easiest as plantasaur, because of the shape of his hitbox.

A nice throwback to the old game boy days! Decent gameplay, nostalgic visuals.. well done! :)

I really like this, it feels like good old gameboy. I like that you have 3 characters to choose

Amazing work. This is exactly how I figured Pokemon would be before getting into the games. Game boy aesthetic looks great, and the controls feel amazing too. 

Developer

Thank you! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought it would be like this!

A little short, but you packed three characters in this so great job!

Developer

Thanks. I thought the 3 character gimmick would be easy and add a lot... I was wrong about both of those. If I could do it again, I'd focus on one Pokemon, in exchange for maybe one more level.

I like the aesthetic of the gameboy colors

Developer

Thanks! I've been trying to limit my color pallet, and I think I did a good job too :D

That was fun, I like the interpretation of pokemon as an action game! Love the names too, great job!
