Sheep Goes Left (Beta 2) (NDS Game)

Jayenkai updates his game “Sheep Goes Left”. Guide your sheep always left, but avoid obstacles. Sounds easy, is easy, but only in the first few levels.

Changes:

Pros
10 complete worlds, (50 levels!!) complete with music, and lovely swoopy backgrounds.
Mini Editor! OMG!WTF!BBQ!ALODARE!!!

Cons
Still no scores.
Lives temporarily removed due to lack of “skip” function (see iOS edition!)
Nothing saves. Nothing.. Not even the editor!!
It’s all just a nice play thing for the meantime.

Tricky
The sprites are the same, but the collisions are bumped up to the new sprite sizes.
As a result, those old levels are now 100,000% harder!!!
Good luck!!

Really Tricky!
There’s a couple of levels that seem impossible! But all are doable.
I spent the past hour out in the back garden playing through it all, and was quite happy that it was possible.
It’s tricky! But it’s doable!
.. and you do currently have infinite lives, so there’s not a whole lot to lose.

To Do
A few more objects to fix, another 10 pieces of music to do, and then I’ll be redoing all the levels so that they’re at least a little easier!
(I’ll probably do a 2-level-packs thing)

Sandbox Engine DS-DSi v004.5 (misc)

Sandbox Engine DS-DSi is a 3D FPS style DSi hybrid (for DSi only but also playable on DS) game which started back in 2010 on the DS but when the DSi sudokuhax was discovered its being made with DSi mode in mind.

Watch this video on YouTube.

Release notes:

I added lots more in this version.

+ Made lots of changes to the code, & bug fixes.
+ Actually added a basic GUI finally.
+ There are 4 maps now, I’m adding more objects, cars, buildings, houses & maps, etc & looking for ways to make the maps bigger.
+ The texture changing & ability to move the camera up & down has been removed in this release but will return next release. (Edit: I saved the ability to pan camera up & down in this version)
+ I made some textures higher resolution like grass, & snow. More will have higher resolution in next version.

The 1st map a small island with a house, the 2nd map a sandy beach, the 3rd map is just a small snowy island but there’s a building with floors, & the 4th map is like an intersection, with some houses & the building & cars.
