1up #08 Lightrider

It's finally here, 1UP number 08, it's 3 days late, but I think you will like it. Viet has done some awesome work on the pixel art, giving the game a real 16bit feel, and Rob has pulled it out the bag, with creating a perfect tune that fits the game in only one evening.

Graphics by Viet Nguyen and sound by Rob Oliver.

Zoom along the beams of light as you try to escape the exploding star, watch out for the space crates as they get in the way. Try and collect the green pods for bonus points.

The dreaded flu

Apologies for the lateness of game number 8, a busy real life schedule and the flu has made it difficult to work on the game. But I've got graphics and music, thanks to the talented Viet Nguyen and Rob Oliver. I just need to finish putting the game together.
Please bare with me, normal Gaming will be resumed shortly.

Move to Blogspot

I've decided to move the 1UP website part over to Google's blogspot,
this way it should be easier to update and people will be able to leave comments.
It's taken way longer than I would have liked, but it's done now.
Time to try and get this weeks game finished.

1up #07 Typop

What was meant to be a simple game to get me back on track, ended up being 2 days late.

Graphics by Sarah Lai Wah and music by Robin Williams.

Type the letters that appear in the bubbles to pop them, some take up to 3 pops. Don't let any of the bubbles pass. Careful not to type the letters in the urchins.

Unforuntaly two days late, but I think it was worth it.

Manouver your spaceship over humans/animals to collect them with your tractor beam and take them back to your mothership.

1up #05 Ginger Invasion

Katie Fry was the 100th person to Like our Facebook page, and came up with the phrase "Ginger Revolution".
This was taken and evolved into Ginger Invasion, with graphics by Marlissa Arias and sound by Glen Holland.
Move your trampoline to bounce the invading ginger zombies into the spinning blades. Don't miss, otherwise they'll eat your brains.

Inspiration for gameplay was taken from the trampoline mini game in Infogrames Stir Crazy ft. Bobo.
