by ExciteMike - Jam Entry

With apologies to Farbs and Sergio Cornaga.

(source included in windows zip)

Uses the source code ( ) to ROM CHECK FAIL made by Farbs ( and riffs on Pac-Man Without a Cause by Sergio Cornaga.

For those that don't get the connection to the theme: the enemies have been removed, leaving the player alone and without an objective.

Very good experience but I don't understand the link with the theme.

Nice but i really don't see the link with the theme, and the sound effect is really too loud ^^'

This game was somewhat entertaining, but all of the resources belong to someone else, the game itself is just a lightly modified version of an old game, and it was really quite boring. Sorry :(

Entertaining, although I agree with the others that this breaks some of the jam rules (especially about bringing pre-made assets and all that). Fun, and nice way to twist it so that you're "alone".

*sigh* I thought the rules ( made it pretty clear that this stuff is allowed for the JAM.

As I'm sure you can all tell, this was not a very serious entry, but I feel it is better to have made it and shared it than not. Relax and have fun!

Seems like an exact copy of the original ROM CHECK FAIL except without any enemies!

Very good experience but I don't understand the link with the theme.(2)

The link to the theme is, in my opinion, weak. But the worse is the blatant use of copyrighted material. Also, not very fun to "play".

I didn't know we could submit something like this, and I'm still not sure. Can we?

I didn't see much difference with the original Rom Check Fail except there is no enemies...oh wait...that's the point!
I love Rom Check Fail, so I love this one too, and I like the twist...but I really don't know how to rate it...I think I'll only rate Innovation, theme and humor.
