mickmuze Posted October 30, 2021 Share Posted October 30, 2021 (edited) ? Tober's Nightmare - Version 0.4 Alpha ? 1. THE DARK SPIRITS RISE ON HALLOWEEN NIGHT Tober's backyard has filled up with many Ghosts and Ghouls of the night and he is not having any of it! Your goal is to run to the pumpkin patch at the bottom of the screen and smash the evil spirits in the face with them. The pumpkin patch is watched over by the Phantom Gardener. He doesn't like to come out when Tober is around. Once you run out of pumpkins, run back into your house and the Phantom will tend to the garden and grow more pumpkins for you. Each level in the game consists of two waves of the same enemy before a new enemy is introduced. At the beginning the enemies will move side to side. The further back the enemy is when you hit them with a pumpkin, the more points you will get. If the enemy is in front of the fence when you hit them you will only get 50 points. If they are in the middle of the backyard then you will get 150 points. If the enemy is way back and closer to the house then you will get 200 points. Sometimes it is more strategic to wait for an enemy to move to the back before hitting them with a pumpkin so you can gain a higher score. You have three hearts that represent your health. You will lose one anytime you touch an enemy or get hit by an enemy's spell. On rare occasions, hearts will appear and float across the screen. If you grab one you will gain one heart to your health. You will need to throw all your pumpkins and then run out and grab the heart before it reaches the other side of the screen. The heart is worth 75 points if you grab it in time. 2. USING THE CONTROLLERS Walk - Push the joystick in the desired direction Run - Hold down the fire button while pushing the joystick in the desired direction Pickup Pumpkin - Move player next to the pumpkin and press the fire button Throw Pumpkins - Press the Fire button while holding the pumpkin. If you push the joystick diagonally you can also throw the pumpkins on an angle. The pumpkins will also ricochet off of the sides of the screen when you do this. Note: If you press and release the fire button to pick up a pumpkin then quickly hold down the fire button before Tober is finished picking the pumpkin up, you will be able to run while holding onto the pumpkins. 3. CONSOLE CONTROLS GAME SELECT SWITCH - Use the Game Select switch to choose between Game 1, Game 2, and Game 3. Currently in this Alpha release, Game 1 is the only available option. GAME RESET SWITCH - Use the Game Reset switch to reset the game and go back to the Title Screen. This will clear everything in memory, including your current score! DIFFICULTY SWITCHES - Set the Left Difficulty switch before starting the game in order for the change to take effect. b = Beginner (Regular/Slower speed) a = Advanced (Faster enemies and attacks) ????
