Arnold Bros (est. 1905)

by fanatiko - 48 Hour Compo Entry

LD48: Original version of the game, 320x240 window size.
v_01: Update with a scale zoom and some fixes in initialization code. I mantained the gameplay and graphics at it's original state.

You are a little gnome living in a big mall. Elders have chosen you to cross the haberdashery section and find a mysterious cube which has fallen from Space.

There are very few files in the source code, but most of the game is data driven.

Surely this is a Jam????? Music is outsourced????

@dastry the other people at the credits are the ones who wrote the software I used to create music (Otomata) and effects (sfxr).

This was quite good. Only complaint I have, is that the window was a bit small.

You should make more levels for this :)

Very cool, I love the wall jumping and double jumping.

@kj654321 a coworker suggested me a "hardcore mode" without the additions, like on the old times of ZX.

I'm sorry the game crashes on some computers. I tested the game on all PCs I have at home and it worked. I found a bug with the SDL initialization in the oldest PC so I added a failback software initialization. Maybe I should have kept some logging in the deliverable.

Wouldn't run for me, I launch it and get "Arnoldbros.exe has stopped working. Windows is searching for a solution to this problem" (Win7 64bit)

Shame, liked the look of this :(

Quite enjoyable game! The clean graphics and titles in each room reminded me of VVVVVV. Music was pretty eery which set a good atmosphere.

I know the theme is Tiny World, but when you chose such a small screen size you took away from the game itself.

A fairly good little platformer, not sure how the double jump is mean't to work though, sometimes it let me and sometimes it didn't - I assume this was a bug?

Agree with Kvisle in that having a larger window would be a lot better!

It's not working here too - win7 64b

Graphic is simple, nice and colorful! I only didn't like player animation. :/
I like double jump & wall jump features. I think it needs more levels and more enemies.

Wasn't able to play it unfortunately (Win7 x64), it crashes inside TinyOAL.dll

I'm glad to see someone else has read Truckers though :-)

surreal music, well-implemented and retro gameplay, and what looks like a decently-built engine. Shame it was so short and easy, because this is genuinely promising

Apr 26, 2012 @ 6:57pm

5min of gameplay but 5 good one! The color choise is interesting!

Pretty good. Music was good - more would have been even better. I liked the gameplay. I didn't like the key controls.

Fun platformer! It's got that lovely speccy vibe about it which I like. Good use of otomata and sfxr. The graphics are all very in-keeping. Would like to see further levels in the future :)

Crashes on startup for me, looks like a null pointer.

Sorry for the doublepost but I need to clear unplayable games from my list.

Nice job!!!

Cute little platformer. Good job!
