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.)

Super Dynapogo by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

Explosive pogo a-gogo!

The city of Dynaster is in ruins - an erupted volcano has flooded it with lava, and as a result, an evil government corporation has bought the land to level it into a hellish lava-moat-surrounded fortress.

But it's okay. You have a pogo stick. Not just any pogo stick, either: it's a Dynapogo! It has a stick of dynamite attached that remains intact when it explodes, allowing for infinite reuse. It explodes on contact with anything, so make sure you're pointed the way you want to go when you land!

Get as far as you can by exploding your way across the doomed Dynaster cityscape's rooftops. Watch as the final helpless and stranded Dynasterians are torn apart by the government's leveller, making sure you aren't killed by itself. And for the love of god, avoid the lava!

"I played the original Dynapogo. What's new?!"

Good question! This is an upgrade, not a sequel, so the core gameplay is the same. But Super Dynapogo has these upgrades on Dynapogo:

+ Game runs at 1080p and is fullscreen now - clearer graphics and no accidental clicking off-screen!
+ Game contains proper HUD elements - original was for a game jam with "no in-game text" as a restriction, so that's now rectified
+ HUD graphics have been polished
+ Everything's got a shadow now, because shadows are for cool people
+ Several new building types added, and tile variety added to new and previous buildings
+ Changed music

Maddening Relapse 2 by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

With Mason Zane killed in a mysterious chain of events, his perception of the world in his alter ego Madd Mann seemed doomed to die. That is, until Daryl Schuhorne, a woman with an equally bizarre obsession for doing absolutely everything in a business suit with a vivid red tie, came along.

Run around in circles. Don't get killed by the wall, which is back in full force. Avoid having a spike introduce new holes into your ecosystem. You see that hole over there? Yeah, don't fall down it. And now, making their return from their appearance in 2010's Maddening, bounce off trampolines and try your best not to get slowed down in vats of thick goo!

Further improvements from Relapse 1 include the game running in native 1080p, tons of polish to everything, improved level generation bringing more variety to the table, and a new soundtrack by Meizong.

If you have a GameJolt account, Maddening Relapse 2 also contains 93 GameJolt achievements and global leaderboards. Sign in to receive them!

Innoquous 5 by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.fw.png

Innoquous 5, the fifth in the game series that began with 2008's Innoquous, is a huge puzzle platformer... with a twist! Hit a gravity arrow or jump into a flipper and you can rotate gravity, opening new paths through each of the huge collection of levels!

Make your way through 175 levels (100 brand-spanking new to the game, 75 from Innoquous 4) riddled with alternative paths and shortcuts, encountering tens of obstacles, unique puzzles and a need to invent some bizarre strategies to finish them!

All 175 levels are playable in six game modes, for hundreds of hours of content:

  • Standard: Get to the exit. That's it.

  • Bunny Hunt: Find the hidden bunny trapped in a crate somewhere off the beaten track.

  • Conditional: Obey a certain restriction in finishing the level that will force you to undertake new routes.

  • Time Limit: Get to the exit as fast as you can to obtain a gold, silver or bronze medal.

  • Fiery Floors: Complete the level with added flooring and obstacles to make your life difficult.

  • Chaser: Complete the level while a deadly clone of you is always one second behind you.

On top of that, there are multiple groupings of the levels in both Speedrun and the new Permadeath mode, in which you either see how quickly you can complete the entire grouping, or see how many you can complete before you die.

Find the secret note in each of the new 100 levels. They're never clear - some will even require you to perish to obtain them!

Each one will unlock a line of a poem explaining how you found yourself in this bizarre world, who sent you here, and what happens next!

If you run out of levels, the game also comes with a full-featured level creator! Give your level a name, a creator, a description, and begin drawing! Place every obstacle found in the main game, give it a gold, silve and bronze time limit, a conditional objective, place the bunny somewhere, and generally do pretty much everything found in the main game!

You can then enter the Created Levels menu, where the game will display you all of your custom levels along with tracking completion, just as it does regular levels. Feel free to share your levels with others and build up a collection! (You can find your levels in %localappdata%\Innoquous_5 on Windows.)

And now, with the added dimension of multiplayer, the levels of insanity are more Maddening than ever.

Radslaughter by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

One hitman. One skateboard. Two pistols of a length that definitely isn't a result of overcompensation. Ten locations. Ten targets. Ten teddy-bears.

Slaughter them. Be rad. Radslaughter is a physics-based puzzle arcade game which gets difficult. Kill each of the targets without smashing your face open or being massively dismembered by razorblades. Find the secret teddy-bear in each level and complete them as fast as you can to get 5 stars (none of that 3 star crap here!)

Maddening Relapse by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

Maddening Relapse is the sequel to 2009's madnessMADNESSmadness and its 2010 followups Remaddening and the YoYo Games-published spinoff Maddening.

The game is an intense endless runner with entirely procedurally-generated levels. You are a madman who simply goes by Madd Mann, and you perceive the world as a place where you run around in circles from an unrelenting wall, avoiding world gaps and spikes in the process. The wall conceals and reveals new terrain, and new to the series, wraps around the circle, always staying in view. The further you get from it, the closer you get to it!

Maddening Relapse will eventually also be available on iOS, Android, and potentially Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. I may also get around to other releases as well. Such is the power of GameMaker: Studio!

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.
