FEMICOM Game Jam #4: Treasure Chest #42

What’s a “Treasure Chest” article?

It’s a short text and video compilation of three to five small jam games we really liked for some reason (like core concept, artwork, effort etc.).

The neat twist in this “Pong” game are the falling pills, which have two functions: On the one side they’ll block the ball and shoot it back in the direction where it came from, on the other side they act as temporal power ups, which will let the players ‘racket’ grow.

Instead of being one of the “Pong” players, you are in the role of a cat! You want to catch the ball as often as possible, so you jump around and try to attack it. A cute little PICO-8 game.

Two witches having a magical “Pong” duel? Count me in! Each witch can shoot as many magical stars as they want. When they touch each other, they’ll both fade away, also they can be blocked by the witches themselves.

Besides the neat vaporwave aesthetics in the second stage of the game, I really enjoyed the kind-of ‘bullet time’ mechanic: Whenever the ball comes near to you, you control your ‘racket’ in slow motion.

While it’s an ordinary “Pong” game, I really dig the oldschool graphics, which remind me of Nintendo 64 or some of the first PlayStation games. >>PLAY
