Mr. Ampersand in ASCII World
  5th/14   Σ26.476   Jul 2nd 2017 8:32am
Hoo boy, uploading this at pretty much the last minute because the game itself was done but the music wasn't :V

Mr. Ampersand in ASCII World is a 2D platformer in the vein of Super Mario Bros., but in TEXT :O

You play as Mr. Ampersand, an average typography geek who, one day, was shocked to find that the entire world had become text! Who would even DO such a thing? Why, ASCIIthulhu, of course! You know, the vile, evil being made out of text that transforms anything it touches into text?

Can Mr. Ampersand defeat ASCIIthulhu and save the world from textification? There's only one way to find out... and that is to play the game, of course!

You can read more in the manual (contained within the ZIP file).

The game can be played in two ways:
1. Donload the entry, extract the ZIP file, open in Firefox (The game is missing sound and some colors in Chrome for some reason)

Loved the whole thing where the game wants you to jump on the bats to go get the extra lives. Loved the music (yet the final boss theme died on me when I hit him for the second or third time). Lel Mario levels and Lel Megaman Bossfight.

Great game, lots of neat little things to it.
It's got some bad slowdown on my machine, though. Some stages played at half speed.

here's my cc:

• collision boxes were ambiguous.
• levels 2 and 4 ran really slowly for me.
• i got stuck in a wall once.

there's not really a lot else to say since the game was obviously an homage. the boulders were my favorite part. i wish more tactical thought were required to avoid them, though.

You made shooting useless on purpose right?

But you can defeat certain enemies by shooting at them?

Yeah, ducking and shooting was the best part of the game.
