Announced at zx.pk.ru Sorry for the poor screenshot quality, I just linked to the source.

Looks like a conversion of some early existing game from another platform. Probably not a final version as file name says v01.

I understand that the chunky graphics are a part of the style ;) But one thing that certainly could be improved is turning at the corridors. The game makes a common mistake requiring that you need to be at pixel perfect position to go left/right from up/down corridor and so on.

Are you using a joystick? I didn't have this problem using keys. Using multiple key presses I could 'slide' around the maze easily.

I'm not familiar with the original, but this is a pretty neat. It somehow captures the feel of a different system as well as the graphics. It's making good use of AGD too, the guardian behaviour seems to be different to the built-in defaults.

Pooper Scooper:
Wow. This must be Davey's best game to date, and not the first time I've referenced Multidude in one day!

If you can get past the scatological obsession, this is a outstanding tag-team game. The instructions could be better though; this is what I've pieced together so far:
  • The worm (Scot Faece) eats plants that block the way
  • The beetle (Mark Barton Dung) eats the sh*t that completes the level
  • The wasp (Willy the Wasp) stings the faces, and the guy committing indecent exposure, to turn them into more sh*t
  • The lad (Chave Doley) punches blocks out of the way
Amazing graphics and sound too :ugeek:

You just walk into them; the switch is automatic.
