Game & Watch: Dodgeman
Did you ever play those old Nintendo Game & Watch games? Well, growing up as a kid in the 80s, it was pretty much impossible to avoid them. And who would want to? Recently I was thinking about how I loved those old things, and I got to wondering what my own flash game, Dodgeman 2 (also available on NG), would look like if it had been converted into a Game & Watch.
So I went ahead and made it! Game above, instructions below.. have fun!
This is a Game & Watch interpretation of my flash arcade game, Dodgeman 2! As in the original, the goal of the game is to dodge the stuff falling from the top of the screen. If you get hit 3 times it's game over, so watch out!
You accumulate one point every time an object leaves the bottom of the screen.. without conking you on the head!
From the demo/clock screen, click either the "Game A" or "Game B" to start a game! Game A is for novices, while Game B provides more of a challenge to seasoned Dodgers.
The "Sound" button will toggle the sound on/off. This can only be done from the demo/clock screen, and is indicated by a speaker icon, just below the time display. If the speaker is on, the sound is on.
If you have already racked up some scores from previous sessions, you can press the "Submit Scores" button to send your scores to our online hiscore lists. (You'll have to enter your name and then click the big Submit button at the bottom of this screen.) These lists can be viewed by clicking the "View Scores" button. Don't worry, the hiscore pages will open in new browser windows/tabs, one for Game A and one for Game B.
Note: You can view your current hiscores on the demo/clock screen, they will rotate between your Game A hiscore and your Game B hiscore every 2 seconds.
In game, press left/right to move Dodgeman (you can use the on-screen buttons or the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard). Clicking the "Time" button will take you back to the demo/clock screen.
- My good friend Chris Burgesse for providing the original sprite artwork that I converted into "LCD" interpretations.

March 6, 2009 - Daily 8th/Front page!
NOTE: You can use the keyboard left/right arrow keys to move, you don't have to use the on-screen buttons :) The arrow keys make play much easier.
Daily 8th, and FRONT PAGE?! Woohoo!! Thanks so much everyone, I wasn't expecting that!!
