I got bored, so I began work on a new game. You never know if an idea you thought up is good enough for a game. This one is about a canoe. It took a few hours to get to this point.

Basically the game is a cross between the Atari 2600 game "Raft Rider" and the arcade game "Toobin'." You control a guy in a canoe. Your job is to steer your canoe to avoid obstacles and pick up stuff. The joystick up or down controls your y movement, and pressing the action button moves your canoe forward.

Thoughts?

Nice start. At this point, it almost has an "endless runner" feel, but I can see it taking on the Raft Rider/Toobin' path as well. It will be interesting to see where this goes.

Apparently I can't use custom sounds AND make the background more than one color at the same time. Since the game relies on the background colors, the custom sounds had to go. Once I did it started working good on my Odyssey˛ (it hadn't before.)

I've been working on this a lot recently. Here are some screenshots from the game.
I'm thinking of "Can You Canoe?" as a title.
