Bouncy the Hungry Rabbit

  • bouncy-r9.tgz — Fixed final submission (471.01 Kbytes on 2006/09/09)
In Richard's entry, you play Bouncy the Hungry Rabbit. You're in a garden with yummy veggies and a farmer who's not keen on you eating them. You can hide (and move around) under the ground.

Bouncy was written so it could be enjoyed by my daughter, who is about to turn 3, and by older gamers. Hence it's not a violent game and "easy" is really, really easy, and "hard" is challenging.

Devoid of Responsibility

Our last entry was under SnV and we've switched up our team a bit this time. Due to the timing of the competition (start of the school year) a lot of our members are unavalible or on very reduced time. We're taking a much more relaxed approach and hope everything turns out well.
