SLIPPERY SAM THE GAME
Heeeeee what is this ???? A game ???? and it is finished ???????
Well almost, there are still a few thing to change (BUGS) but this
is the result sofar. Okay stop the rubbish and let me tell you
something about it.
Slippery Sam is a kind of conversion of a very very old game. We
converted this game from an old listing once published in Your
Computer in '83 (or somewhere in that time period). It was in
originaly for an Oric writen in basic but since the old basic
types where very straight forward the conversion wasn't that
difficult. We re-wrote it in GFA basic and added some other
things to it to make the game some what more appealing for you.
The Game itself
Well you all know the old game snake (well atleast the older
computer users should) and the aim of the game is to eat the bugs
in order to grow and become a big snake. But there are ofcourse
some hazzards out there or else it wouldn't be that much fun
wouldn't it. Each tim you eat a bug there will appear a poision
mushroom or a power pill. You can't eat those poisioned mushrooms
because you will die. But if you eat a powerpill before you will
survive it. So for each mushroom there is a power pill so don't
forget to eat them. Doesn't sound that spectaculair does it but I
suggest you try it before judging the game. By the time you ate all
the bugs a level is over and new bugs will be placed and also some
bricks to make live even more difficult. These bricks can't be
moved nor broken. So avoid them as much as possible or you might
die. There is another thing to keep in mind, you can't crawl over
yourself, so if you for example go left and want to turn back and
crawl over your own tail (body) then you will die also. Crawling
against a wall (one of the borders) is also leathal, so you seee it
might not be so easy afterall.
Well this game can be controlled on almost every way to make it
playable for everyone.
By joystick. Plug it in port 1 and of you go
(p.s. the mouse is in port 0 by the way.)
By keyboard. simple use the cursor keys...
(you know the keys with the arrows on them)
By Jaguar Controller Pad. Plug it into port 0 and ready you are.
Well what more do you want ???
System demands !!!!
Slippery Sam runs on a standaard Falcon with 4Mb with any kind of
screen (TV, RGB and VGA!!!) but I recommend that you start clean
without and screen utils (NVDI, Warp 9 or something) because of
the fact that we use hardware addresses to set screen modes. This
might not be the best way but it works. Well there isn't much to
explain amymore about this game execpt for the fact:
* If you like please write it to me.
* If you find any bugs please write also to me so I can remove
them and make a new version.
* If you want to make a donation for it (in any form) please do.
Maybe we make another game ( We are working already !!)
