Your goal in each stage is to eat all the fruit to unlock the goal, then escape through the goal with all Snakebirds. Eating a fruit will increase a Snakebird’s length by one. Falling on spikes or off the screen will kill your Snakebird and you have to restart. Some levels can have movable objects, which can help you on your way.

The Gizzle Wap and the Great Blizzard (09-12-2016) (A2600 Game)

Mountain King updated his new WIP Atari VCS game The Gizzle Wap and the Great Blizzard.

It’s the holidays in Sundra. A great blizzard hit the land suddenly trapping anyone that was unfortunate enough to be caught outside. You play as the Gizzle Wap and the Moum Moum searching the land for survivors. Move the Gizzle Wap left and right and press up to jump. The Moum Moum will follow. Press the fire button to dig in the snow to search.

Listen closely to the Moum Moum. He has a better sense of where a creature might be buried. Dig where he sings. You may have to scan an area more than once to find something. He will not sing if he is standing on the Gizzle Wap or if he is too high in the sky.

Changes:

1. Fixed the Crab and the Sleepy ghost. They fall into the holes better.
2. Fixed an exploit where you could dig up the same spot over and over again.
3. Fixed the dog, he no longer wraps around to the other side of the screen.
4. The Moum Moum keeps his wings out when returning to the Gizzle Wap.
5. All Creatures are animated and act differently when you rescue them.

The Gizzle Wap and The Strange Red Tree (Update 88) (A2600 Game)

The Gizzle Wap and The Strange Red Tree is a game for Atari VCS by Mountain King.

Deep in the JThainian forest, in the clearing where the Zazzle Flies play a Strange Red Tree took root over night. It made an unsettling hum and gave off a noxious odor poisoning many of the flies. Camy, the strongest of his brood sought help from the defender of the woods, a small bouncing creature known as the Gizzle Wap. He would know what to do.

The Gizzle Waps solution was simple: Remove the Strange Red Tree. But there was another problem. Coinciding with the appearance of the red tree came the Myrmica a race of mindless insects that feed upon the inhabitants of the forest. Even worse the Myrmica never come alone. They serve the Invicta. Unlike the Myrmica, the Invicta are cunning and tenacious. They will not be satisfied until they control the entire forest or see its destruction. The tree is most certainly their machination.

The plan to remove the tree and defeat the Invicta was not as simple. The only creatures strong enough to pull the tree out of the ground are the Pegsi. The Gizzle Wap would attract the Pegsi to the clearing with cloud fruit and convince them to remove the Red Tree. Once the tree has been removed, the Invctas magic will be weakened and their lair should be revealed. The final step will be to confront the Invicta.

Changes:

1. Fixed a bug where you would die in the final screen.
2. Fixed a bug where the wasp would eat ALL your fruit. Made the final levels almost impossible.
3. Removed the continue feature. It doesn’t work the way I wanted it to.

Ma Kai Quest v0.305 (WIP) (Master System Game)

Ma Kai Quest is a total conversion of “Alex Kidd in Miracle World”. Modifications are still in progress and the whole game just looks brandnew.

Current status:

We took a creative break but are now back at work again. First steps were fixing, polishing and adding some minor stuff and adding a completely new level (codenamed “junkyard”) as well as finally writing the complete story down. I updated some of the screenshots of the original post and hope to present a milestone real soon. Current version number is 0.305 but we will not post any updated ROM patches soon.
