Here’s my next game, based on a classic ZX Spectrum game done in 2012 by Dave Hughes.
This game is based on Dave Hughes’ original game called EFMB. This game can be found here: http://www.worldofspectrum.org/infoseekid.cgi?id=0027297
Our version takes graphical inspiration from the PC version done by Locomalito that can be found here: https://www.rgcd.co.uk/2012/07/endless-forms-most-beautiful-pc-2012.html
Due to the Pokitto’s hardware limitations, storage limitations and memory limitations, and the fact it was coded in MicroPython which in itself has its own overheads, this version is quite a cut down version.
For example, this version misses out on: 2 enemy types, the moving worm, platform explosions, some item drop types like the weights, speed and shield. Other than that thought, each level is randomly generated (apart from the first 5 levels). The same counts for the enemies being randomly generated after level 5.
D-Pad: moves Moby left/right, up/down.
A: Starts game
B: Shows instructions
c: Ends the game
