C.H.E.A.T. parody game


Recommended Posts

so I made another game of sorts, this one is based on an ancient screenshot the Homestar Runner people made that was a parody of the E.T. game but with their own character, The Cheat.


You can skip the so-so title music and get into the gameplay.


There's a webpage for it here: http://deater.net/weave/vmwprod/cheat/ with a link to the ROM (8k) and source code


Directions: you are The Cheat.  Bubs (the orange guy) in the concession stand wants 12 Cheatcakes (little yellow boxes).  You can only carry 4 at a time.  Find them and bring them back to him.  Don't get caught by strongbad (red guy) or he will steal your cakes and send you back to your house.  If you fall in a pit, use the joystick button to levitate out.  Also watch out for grumblecakes (black boxes) as too many of those are bad for you.

OK, even though this was mostly meant as a parody, I've fixed things up so now it is actually a full "game" that you can win or lose.


Also added some extra scenes.


I'm going to declare this done for now, although there's about 80 bytes free (on the 8k ROM) that are taunting me wanting some extra content
