Jasmine Laslo - Switch U On by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

You've been tasked with a simple but bizarre request from business magnate Rudolf Laslo - help him get his daughter's latest (terrible) song to 1,000,000 plays on his streaming service, Slola. He's so desperate for that, that every other track on the service is currently down.

Reach 1,000,000 plays by any means possible.

Maddening Euphoria by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

Ever feel like you're running around in circles?

Maddening Euphoria is a unique, challenging arcade game with randomly generated level design, in which you control brother and sister duet Mason and Millicent Zane as they flee from their own imagined realisation of their troubles in life - an inescapable wall of death - while avoiding bottomless pits, deadly spikes and speed-reducing pools of thick goo. Keep within spitting distance of the wall to receive a short, colourful Second Wind speed boost and gain the opportunity to be one eighth euphoric.

Not enough for you? Don your favourite fedora, go for eight pieces, and enter the multicoloured rainbow world of Euphoria where time goes even faster, spikes disappear and your survival speeds up dramatically. Or tackle some of the game's 150+ challenges ranging anywhere from trivially easy to borderline unfathomable.

Meanwhile, choose from 36 game themes (or throw it on Shuffle), each with themed poetry telling tales of your demise with anywhere from innocent whimsy to incomparable filth, and ranging from surprisingly clever to embarrassingly hideous. If you're English, Scottish, Welsh, Irish, German, Spanish, Japanese, American, or from Bristol or Norwich like we are, I apologise profusely. Also have the game mock your failures in one of 51 ways of varying levels of Britishness. And all of this while other people's highscores pop up and you wonder what some people do with their time.

This is the flashiest, fleshiest Maddening to date. It even has some diamondy bits. And you can turn those off if you're only in it for the circles.

Just don't buy it if you suffer from epilepsy. (Please.)

“The concept of navigating through a never-ending ball-in-a-maze puzzle is such a unique concept that for just $1USD, it’s a no brainer to download onto your Switch just to experience what innovating level design can offer.“ - Switchaboo
“No brainer under a $1.” - Sysgen
”A solid leaderboard chaser. […] Everything is a little over the top, but I dig it.” - Scrumpy
”A unique test of focus and visual-spatial awareness.” - MrSterious

Super Fidget Spinner by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

Super Fidget Spinner is the reason I, Allison James, shouldn't drink on a Tuesday. A desperate self-serving wake up call that I should stick to making fonts and actual games worth the time of the general public. And it is the result of a fascination with a small, inexpensive birthday present I received last week that I have since been unable to put down due to my lifelong obsession with stupid objects that don't do anything of value or productivity and are available in a range of colours, shapes, sizes and qualities. Four bearings set into a small chunk of cheap plastic and I'm dedicating time to program tributes to it. Good.

Orbit Frenzy by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.fw.png

You meet a race of aliens that are the friendliest in the world. They exist to love. There is no war.

One problem. They create Special Custard, a substance which to them is just a nutrient food. But to humanity, it grants extended life and is rich in minerals unseen on Earth.

You are Reginald Waft, a savvy British hipster businessman who's left it all - cheeky fried chicken with the lads, banter for days and even the occasional episode of your nearest soap opera with your mum - to ransack the planet. You might even take the concept of their planet and sell it to some British TV channel as a children's programme.

Go with your array of missiles that grapple onto things to steer, and also somehow collect the abundant Special Custard. Missile those cutesy swines before they sing you a song about learning things. And then get back to the lads back in Britain, drop a couple beers, re-curl your moustache and smash up the local gym.

Orbit Frenzy is the clean version of Telifrenzy, Allison James' (and by proxy, Chequered Ink's) entry into Ludum Dare 33.

SohoPogoHo by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

SohoPogoHo, my creation for the Game Jolt jam, is a game in which you play as a pogo stick-wielding prostitute bringing her unique services to the world.

The game is primarily mouse-controlled, with the cursor deciding the direction in which she pogos, and the left and right mouse buttons controlling the bounce intensity. Get to the man at the end of each level to finish it.

The game is fairly difficult, but can be taken both slowly or quickly (slowly's advisable to start with).

Includes two trophies, for completing all ten rooms and for earning $50,000.
