Dr. Flin and His Pills


Recommended Posts

This is a game I'm making. In it, pills are coming from the right of the screen to the left. What you do is make sure the pill color matches the hole color it goes into. If not, or it touches the sides, the pill hole becomes smaller. There are four colors of pill: red, yellow, blue and green. The green pill should be destroyed by smashing it into the wall. If a green pill gets into any hole, all three holes will become smaller.

Right now there are a few bugs which don't make sense. Like this one:


If a pill is on the bottom part of a hole (if the pill's bottom is one pixel above the hole), it won't clear. I don't know why, because it should.

Anyway, let me know what you think of the game. I'd like to try to keep this at 2k. I have 280 bytes left, so I have plenty of room for changes.

A few changes:

+ I made the game go a bit faster once you reach 10 points. I can change this to, well, anything below 256 points.

+ Once a pill is in its correct slot and you press up or down, it does not penalize you for touching the sides. Instead, it bounces up and down until it gives you a point.

A little change. I made the pills' speed increase at 25 points instead of 10. I also wrote a little text describing the game. I played a game to test it. I got 180 points.

By the way, I think this is my best 2k game so far. I've wanted to make a non-timed 2k game. I think I finally did it. (Well, not counting Virtual Dieter I did a few months or so back.)
