Not really a progress thread as the game is finished - well, maybe, in case I polish something for the multicart.

Already submitted.

blurb.txt
Code:
Name:           Wo xiang niào niào

Submitted By:   na_th_an

Category:       1 (the contest)

Description:    Lin Lin knows the frog king won't be pleased until he receives
                *at least* eight flies, and he's blocking the toilet. Gosh,
                that's a bummer. So collect at least eight flies on your way
                to the toilet (which is located uhm... straight to the right)
                and he'll let you pass.

                Baddies hurt you, but you can bounce on them with your butt.

                If you happen to get to the frog with more than 8 flies, you
                can play the bonus stage to gain some extra flies which will
                count for the second segment of the level...

                ... which has an autoadvancing scroll. Don't let the screen
                go faster than you, RUN. And you still have to collect the
                flies.

Controls:       D-pad: Movement
                Select: Continue (title screen)
                Start: Starts the game from the beginning (title screen)
                B: (During jump) butt button.
                A: Jump

Rom info:       Mapper 0, NROM256 with vertical mirroring
                Filesize 40K
                Special peripherals Needed: none

Other:          There are 4 levels with two sections. When you use the continue
                option, the game will start on the level you were killed,
                section 1, no matter if you were killed on section 2.

                The game has some debugging cheats I couldn't be arsed to
                remove. You might find them.

I translate the title as "I wish to urinate".

And, apparently, your clothes fly off if you run into a bad guy. Poor Lin Lin.

Same happened to knight Arthur in Daimakaimura :D

From my point of view, it's a great name if you want to prevent mass copy from China.

Diskover for best comment of the year, and it's only the 31st of January.

I found a bug.

In the room with the toilet (where scrolling is stopped), you can run left off the screen and her head pops up somewhere in the bottom of the screen, like it didn't know where to put her.

Thanks, I'll fix that for the cart release :)

BTW. I really like the mechanics of this game...bouncing off enemies to jump higher and get items is really fun.

I made it to 4-2 but this part seems to be impossible:

Ops - I'm sorry, it seems that Google Drive again played tricks on me. I fixed that part of the level, but on another computer. And it seems it didn't get updated in the one I used to submit the game.

100% my fault, sorry.

The game will be fixed for the multicart. Meanwhile, you were two screens away for the ending, so just press UP+A+B to activate the cheat and watch it.

Sorry again :(

What is UP + A + B supposed to do? (Where / when do I press this?)
Re: Progress Thread - Wǒ xiang niào niào
by on (#188522)
That key combination just advances to the next level. I used it while debugging. I was telling you in case you want to experience the full game and watch the end sequence, as you can't reach it legally as the level map is bugged.

At least it happens in the last section of the last level of the game, so at least you got to experience everything, gameplay wise.

If I press it on the title screen it starts on level 3-1 instead of the beginning, but otherwise it doesn't seem to do anything during gameplay. Is there a special time or a special way to press it? Do I have to press the buttons in a particular order?
Re: Progress Thread - Wǒ xiang niào niào
by on (#188524)
Ah, it seems to be UP + A + SELECT, ha ha I can see the little dance now.
Re: Progress Thread - Wǒ xiang niào niào
by on (#188525)
Sorry, it's A+SELECT+UP.

You have to press them at the same time, during gameplay. Anyways, here's the fixed ROM. Not that it solves anything, but at least those who are interested in playing the game can finish it properly. Sorry again.

I'm in the process of fixing up things a bit for the multicart.

- I've changed a couple of spots in the map.
- The falling speed and gravity when you press B are bigger.

I could change the jump curve but I'm just so used to it and I think it fits this game. Any thoughts?

I've been asked to cover the main sprite when she loses her clothes and to hide the fact that she is sitting on a toilet at the end of the levels as it would seem offensive for some people.

I've changed the sprites and replaced the toilet by a full-covering portable WC.

Nothing else has been changed.

Well, that'll make the nude reversion patch that much easier.

I must say that hip-drop doesn't make much sense as an attack of someone who needs to pee…

That's actually very true :lol: :lol:
