You wake up with one purpose in your newly born mind: to protect home. But you did not expect everything to be so quiet and empty. What is going on? A top-down bit-flipping puzzle game, set in the depths of an AI.

In celebration of my 20th Pyweek submission (10+ years!), I put in more effort than usual for this one. I hope you enjoy! :)

Lawnmower Robots Helping At A Garden Exhibition

I didn't have enough time to finish all I wanted to finish (work, need I say more? LOL) Anyways, this is some kind of a defense game where the objective is to kill lawnmower robots who malfunction before they can enter the garden exhibition. Some lawnmower robots can also be repaired. For help and introductions, please read the README.txt file, thanks!!

Block the Knight

The Story --------- A fourth dragon (duck), not in the original Atari VCS 2600 Adventure has captured back the chalice and hid it at the end of a long cavern. The dragon has organized characters from past Atari games to help keep you out of the cavern. Each nemesis is armed with unlimited bullets, so watch out. At the end the dragon is guarding the chalice, he has given them the order "You can't let him in here." Unfortunately your old Atari joystick is worn out and all you have left is the fire button (the space bar on your keyboard). Being the brave, yet very square, knight you are, you swallowed the magnet causing you to be pulled down the cavern towards the chalice. Working to your advantage, your worn out Atari also has a glitch that gives you unlimited lives and no timeout so you can keep going until you reach the end. How to Play ----------- Use the space bar to jump over the obstacles. Don't hit the obstacles, bullets, or the nemeses. Modules Needed ----------- pygame and pyaudio

You cANT let him in here

Your home has become a war zone. If you conserve your very limited resources carefully, you just might make it. Air being one of them - make sure you take a breath in between the relentless, frantic waves of enemy incursions.

Forget the mess, clean up is for later. Get in the fight! You cAN'T let 'em in here! :)

P.S. - There is a potentially very LOUD alarm during game play. We tried to soften the volume to a safe hearing level. Just to be safe, please don't play this with headphones on; or do so cautiously, until you're sure of the alarm's sound level. This is the alarm when the hopper is full (the orange canister).

P.P.S. - You'll have a better audio experience if you turn off dynamic EQ in your soundcard's settings. Especially voice and volume levelers, and dynamic sound shaping. You can adjust the sfx and music master volumes in (0.0 ≤ vol ≤ 1.0).

P.P.P.S - See the diary below for tips, spoilers and amusing commentary.

There's a post-pyweek bug fix here. You want to get it to avoid frustration. See diary entry "Critical bug #1".

A simple game like the old pinball game, here you have to keep the red "dudes" out and let in the blue "dudes" (for now). Can almost say pinball survival.

The Torus

  • — Here is the exe version. With a miracle, it could work on your computer. The best still remains to have python3.x with pygame and numpy on your computer...
  • — "standalone" version. - I will upload a really heavy one which comes with an executable...
Exploration of a procedurally-generated world map with a torus-topology. A guy need your help somewhere in this world. You can't let him in here.
