Hi guys.

Here’s my next game, based on a classic ZX Spectrum game done in 2012 by Dave Hughes.

Info:
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

I actually did not have time to try this (too busy with the Java compo) but I tried anyway :slight_smile: After few tries I managed to get to the third full level. A very good puzzle game! One of the best in Pokitto.

FYI You can tweak the speed of the anim-gifs produced by the emulator with ezgif.com to reflect the real speed on HW.
