Randomazer

by Thomas Ilg (Game) , Sébastien Larnac “STS” (Graphics), xFalcon (Music)

RANDOMAZER is an Action-Puzzler for the ATARI STe/Falcon line of 16 Bit computers. It is a brand new original game for a system that can best be described as a “niche platform”. But putting all that aside, I designed Randomazer as a game, which can be enjoyed just as a great gaming experience by itself: It is a unique approach to a puzzle game with frantic marble action that need to be controlled. And while the challenges to be solved come with the levels, the paths through the maze changes every time you restart a level. It is never the same again!

Bots Are Stupid

by Leander Edler-Golla

Ever heard of Robots becoming sentient and taking over humanity? Ridiculous! Bots are extremely stupid! They can’t even make it through a room full of deadly obstacles, nauseating heights and tiny platforms using nothing but a powerful grappling hook – without human support at least. So why not help them? 

“Bots Are Stupid” is a 2D platformer where you try to maneuver robots through different platforming levels. It sets itself apart from conventional platformers by offering an alternative, more precise way of user input. Instead of directly controlling the character’s movement, the player has to write a set of simple instructions telling his robot what to do. The bot will then follow those instructions precisely and maybe (or maybe not) finish the level.
