So I was thinking since I had not worked on anything Odyssey2 related since April that I'd do a little something. This is a fly swatting demo. long time members may remember the Celery game I did. This is a lot like that. Since it never got released, I thought since I learned a whole lot since then that I'd try to make a better fly swatting game. The fly is made up of two characters (M & W for the wings and circle for the body.) I would like a new sprite for the hand holding the fly swatter.

Yes, but he never did, so I'm chalking it up to lost.
Here's a better version. I wanted to use the circle as the body, but real Odyssey 2 problems forced me to use the square.

Hi Chris

Can you make it a timed game?  Maybe count down from 99 seconds and see how many flies can be swatted in that allotted time?

Just a suggestion...

thanks,

Tim

I don't really like the idea of timed games. It limits the player's capability and caps the high score with a time limit. I feel that the player should be rewarded for playing well with added time spent playing the game.
Here is a version with a score and a title screen.

Havenít done it yet. There is a difference. I have a life, and that gets in the way too often.
