The classic game “Snake” is fun because of it’s simplicity and replayability. You start out as a small snake made up of one or two blocks, and you grow longer each time you eat something. You have to avoid colliding with yourself, which becomes progressively harder as your tail grows longer. The entire game only contains a few elements, but you can play it over and over – that makes it a perfect candidate for a “Let’s Make a Game” Tutorial!

Game Roundup – January

.

For the first month of 2013 we’ve had a load of good games produced on Gamefroot. Check out some of the ones we thought were pretty great:

Muffin Cave Quest

By Natasha Skye Bishop

 

Oh noes, the cave ceiling is collapsing! Grab as many muffins as you can, there’s no time to explain!

 

.

SAYONARA BABY

By Alvaro Aparicio

 

Batman vs Terminator Robots. Me gusta!

 

Teddo’s Odyssey

By Cass

 

Even though Cass says this is just a test level, it looks so cool! Can’t wait to see what comes next.

Bowserflame Challenge IX

If you’re still hungry even after collecting all those muffins, here are some cookies… and some lava. Don’t drink the lava.

Bowserflame’s Mega Blast

By Bowserflame

.
In this game, each time you collect a ball a new one spawns in a different location. The more blue balls you get, the higher your score goes, but you have to avoid getting shot by the enemies that constantly spawn from the top. A brilliant use of scripting by Bowserflame!

John’s Game

.
Kill the skeletons and dodge the obstacles. This game is a nicely done platformer – made in the classic Gamefroot style!

Great stuff, everybody!
