Chris!

I love that pig! I put him in the game. He needs to be animated though, so a second frame would help.

Added Voice support. I fought long and hard with my Voice module which is on the verge of breaking, but it does what I want it to now for testing. I tried to fix my Voice module but I lost the screws that screwed into the holes where screws go. Does anyone know what type of screws will work for it?
And, since the way the code works now, I have to have every sample be in the same bank. I chose E8. Sometimes when I said I wanted it to go to E9, it would disobey me and stay at E8. So to make matters simpler, I just decided to use the same bank for all the Voice samples.

What works for me is sending the Voice bank number twice before sending the sample number to the Voice.

Chris!

Yep, that worked. I wonder what causes it to not read it the first time, though.

I see you already created an animation. ;)

Chris!

I think I'm done with the game. I would have liked to put in a death sound, but it won't let me, so this will have to do.

I think thereĀ“s some problem with gameplay, actually the player just need to wait the pig move to another floor and get the bacon. ???

Chris!

Yeah, I thought that too. I guess it was just a programming exercise so I don't forget how to program the Odyssey 2. Unless someone has an idea of how I can spice up the gameplay.

It took quite a long time to get it so it works on the Voice module, but I added a timer. Perhaps this will make the game harder?

I figured out there was too much stuff going on in the loop, so I redesigned the guy, took out his head and made it part of the sprite, changed his body from a T to a +, and did a few other things as well.

Instead of a timer in the game, could you make it so that there is a pig on each floor....  a pig on floor 2, floor 3, and floor 4?   Are you out of sprites?

It would sort of be similar to the fireballs in the second level of the Atari 2600 version of DONKEY KONG...



Just an idea,

Chris!

The maximum number of sprites is 4, so the answer is I can't have a pig on each floor.

Six years later...

The Odyssey2 was popular at my family's Easter gathering this year.  We even played an "I Like Bacon" tournament just before Easter dinner (which was ham).  The winning score 91.
I should post more often.  I like the discussions on here and I wish there was even more.

Chris!

Wow! Glad to see my games being enjoyed. I don't know if I even finished this. The computer I had it on died so unless it's on my website somewhere I don't have it.
