I'm back working on this again. I think the scrolling background in the level intro screen looks pretty cool. It should, since I spent all of last night working on it.
In the next update, I will have fixed the cloud issues in the main game.

I am going to take a short break on the game. To ponder what should happen next with the game. My main influence of this game is Kirby 64. I've wanted a Mario type game for the Virtual Boy that isn't Wario Land.

I pondered this one for a long time. I wanted to have a ?-block type thing, like in Mario games. But I didn't want to use a ? because Nintendo already used it in Mario games. So I thought "What can I do to put items in and not have them simply be laying on the ground?" Then it hit me: What comes out of the ?-blocks? Items. So I made it the I-block. (i is short for 'item'.) A can of cranberry juice restores Craig's health to full. You hit the I-Block from below like a ?-block, and then the ?-block breaks open and a can appears floating and you jump up and get it and it restores your health.

Added a health meter and enemy. You'll take damage if you touch the enemy, so it's best not to.

Can someone explain to me why pressing certain buttons slows down the game and then pressing other certain buttons make it go faster? I'm going to give up if nobody will care about helping me.

The Craig the Cranberry website is born. You can check it out here: http://www.atari2600land.com/vbdev/craig.html It links to the Mednafen emulator page on Planet VB. If you'd rather me just link to the main page, just let me know and I'll change it. Anyway, I added a hole for Craig to jump over. Of course they had to make it really hard and have blank tiles in the map be transparent and not black. So I had to make a new tile map and change the palette.

And now a plea. Can we PLEASE have signatures on this forum? I promise not to put pictures in it and limit it to 3 lines. Other forums have these limits, why not this one?

Well, apparently the discrepancy fixed itself. I don't know how. This is my final build for today. It's almost 10 p.m. and I'm sick of this. I'll be back at work on it tomorrow. Download this and play it and let me know if you see any weirdness, especially related to jumping. I spent 5 minutes with it on VB and I think I may have fixed the floating and rising in air problems I had earlier. But if not let me know.
