Winter compo release!

Here is the version that I will probably send to the compo.

New features

  • 2 more levels
  • splash screens
  • credits
  • fixed 500 points glitch
  • Rainbow color

EDIT: I apologize to anyone who downloaded this before this edit appeared. I had a MAJOR bug that I didn’t see because I didn’t test it on my DS and always exited the emulator before exiting a level. If you have downloaded that version, please re-download.


I added another color.

It’s not a color.

It’s a cycle of colors.

to do

Here is my to-do list

  • splash screen Done!
  • music in menu (having problems with streaming music in as-lib)
  • credits screen Done!
  • more levels (Now I have 2 tiled levels)
  • A random level?

5 days left.

In other news, I have installed One minute per day. It allows you to see what happened on your computer screen (and webcam) during a 24 hour period in just one minute.

version .189

In this version I bring to you…

  • A button that makes you able to go through bricks(no visual feedback)
  • A (hidden) bubble that give you bad gas! Charizard is hiding the extra fuel
  • A glitch that wastes your time
  • A saving system that will probably break
  • Ice level that sucks (comment if you’re interested in making levels)
  • un-accessible levels

Yeah, it stinks.

Anyway, here’s the download link

Next week, I plan to have

  • Updated menu
  • more stages
  • a randomly generated stage
  • tutorial level that can teach people how to play


I’ve created icy tiles! And I have to say, They’re pretty dang stellar decent-ish.

Here’s a preview.

You think it looks good? Well, It turns out it isn’t all that great when you have a lot of them together(as apposed to just 4).

Interested in making levels? Comment and I will send you further instructions.

Just today!

Snowdays are always the best! Today, I set the save file to save in the data folder (yay!), and I added colors other than your favorite color so it is:

  1. favorite color
  2. red
  3. yellow
  4. green
  5. green/blue
  6. blue
  7. white
  8. gray

Colors and cheat codes

Today, I programmed favorite colors into the game, so, your DS’ favorite color is the color of the ship. Special thanks to Kono. I also have tiles about 30% done.

I have figured out a cool way to have secret features in any ds game. If your DS’ text is something special, then something special happens. Simple, huh? Also I would be able to make something special happen if you are using Desmume.

If ten of my fans comment saying they want a release, I will post one within a week.
