Ten Flights of Ballooning on itch.io

Ten Flights of Ballooning is a compilation of games based on Pippin Barr's IndieCade East 2016 talk, "36 Reasons to Make the Same Game 26 Times." The challenge began right away by faithfully recreating a classic game (I chose the Balloon Trip mode in Balloon Fight). There's so much nuanced design in so many classic games that it's difficult to truly appreciate until you try to make it yourself. After making what I feel is an accurate recreation, I then twisted and turned a handful of design knobs in order to make 8 variations on the core game.

The result is a full-featured collection of games I'm sure you'll enjoy discovering.

It's pay what you want at the moment. If you want to help me pay off student loans, anything more than $0.00 would be super useful. I also understand paying $0.00!

The game works with a keyboard, a DualShock 4 controller, or an Xbox 360/One controller. Included is a drive for Mac to recognize Xbox controllers.

Some media for you to enjoy:



Thanks! I hope you have a good time!

Just getting around to posting this: https://eeease.itch.io/pelt-em

Last week my team made Pelt 'Em for the 2017 Global Game Jam. It's an arena shooter, except you're pelting children in a ball pit. It's got a sense of humor.

Controls:

WASD moves

Left Shit runs

Space jumps

Hold Right Click to suck up balls and add them to your ball pit cannon. Max 4 balls, which rotate around the tip of your cannon

Left Click will shoot the top-most ball rotating around your cannon.

Check a slightly sped up gameplay vid below:

Can you get through and beyond Wave 10? There's a dark narrative somewhere in there.


Enjoy!

Protip: I find the best strategy to be running and jumping a LOT. The balls in the pit slow you down substantially, so bunny-hopping is the way to go.

Hi all! I've just released my first PICO-8 title, LCRS.

Here's a link: https://eeease.itch.io/light-cycle-rescue-squad

About the game:

  • 2 Players, cooperative
  • Score-attack retro arcade action
  • Pick up refugees and drop them off in a safe zone.
  • Scoring clears your trail (not your partner's!) and also clears the current refugees on screen.
  • Running into your own trail, your partner's trail, a hostile, or an environmental obstacle will crash your cycle.
  • Up (or E, for Player 1) will jump a short distance, which is useful in dodging trails or hostiles.
  • For a simple single player mode, navigate one player off of the screen by jumping over the outside border. (A proper mode select is in the works.)
  • While it is playable by one person, the game really shines with two, as working together to pick up refugees and avoid each other's trail becomes very hectic, very fast.

I mostly worked on this in order to learn Lua. For the last year+ I've been working in Unity with C# and figure I should broaden my programming language knowledge base at least a little bit. I followed a tutorial that helped me grasp some of the syntactical differences between C# and Lua, but once I saw the potential for a game, I went off the rails a bit.

I can't believe how cool PICO-8 is. The restrictions are fantastic for forcing creativity, and exporting process is extremely simple. Here's a picture of the cart if you have PICO-8 and want to download it/poke around in it:

Thanks for checking it out!
