SLOTH

Description

Mr Sloth is quite partial to mangoes, but he is a slow moving chap so the fruit often ages and falls before he can reach it. Help Mr Sloth reach the mango in time!

There are two thrilling sloth modes to choose from and 3 exciting difficulty levels for each!

Get ready to break into a sweat so Mr Sloth doesn't have to Grin

How to play
In the menus - B to select, Z to go back and L/R direction keys.
Ingame - tap B to move, UP/DOWN direction keys to change gear.

Manual mode sloth has a higher top speed than auto sloth, but remember to drop into a low gear when encountering mossy vines.

I think the slower you move the more algae will grow in your fur and algae will attract moths and at the end of the level/game you get algae and moth bonus points.   Grin

that's a cool idea oyog - but currently I'm aiming for something a bit simpler for now.

Gah!  I left out "it would be amusing if" between "I think" and "the slower..."


Oh well, that'll teach me to post in a hurry.

I don't seem to be able to move in manual high gear.  I mash B and nothing happens.  The meter is static, as is my sloth!  Sad

Otherwise, I love the aesthetic, even if the gameplay isn't my cup of tea.  The speed at which the days go by really sealed the deal for me.  Cheesy

Is your sloth always static?  Tired of switching to low gear just to get a fresh mango?  Well, try new MaxiSlothâ„¢!  Guaranteed to fix the most persistent of Sloth Rust!  Order now and we'll throw in two free sloths, guaranteed!

mmm - MaxiSloth.... Beer!

Hiya - when using manual sloth, get your revs up first with the low gear before switching up to high, that should fix any motivational issues with your sloth.

Glad you like it! Its just a small joke game, but has been good coding practice for me.

This game is absolutely hilarious. The graphics, the concept, the delivery. The pixel art is actually far above and beyond fantastic, that alone is worth the price of admission.

I hate the button mashing gameplay. I want to use my right hand to mash B, and my left to shift. I find myself crossing my arms to do this. Mashing Space instead would be even better. I really don't want to mash the button at all. I'd prefer something like Drag Race on the 2600, where you simply had to shift at the right time or suffer a catastrophe, no mashing required.

The result is a game that I want to play in concept, but not in execution.

The top-hat sloth is fantastic.

Thanks for the feedback!

Yeah I agree the button mashing Hand Any Key is a bit hellish.

I like your idea of just gear shifting, much more relaxing. That could would over a network of branches where you could steer (lane shift) too.

kinda weird that you and oddball used the same track for your games

I like the graphics and presentation but it isn't very fun. Kinda hurts my hand to keep mashing on the keys.

I believe they may have taken the track from one of the Assemblee threads.

Yah, Melly is correct, I sourced the audio from the creators in the Assemblee competition - audio credits are by the game description.

Hahaha, well I had to laugh at the Manual Sloth. Grin

Fun little game you got here. Very charming and amusing (and finger-hurting WTF).

Not much else to say. Good job. Beer!Hand Thumbs Up Right

Those must be the slowest bees in the world.

Anyway, this is clearly a joke game, so there's not much to say about it, really. It was pretty much what I expected, but nothing more.

I find the choice of using the B button a little odd, since it's a bit out of the way.

...

I have to say, I'm a little disappointed that no one took this cartridge and made a game about a Megatherium. Ah well...
