EarthBound Distraction

Actual title is Magic Butterfly Distraction but that didn't fit in the Title on the submit page. I wanted to combine a simple game of "Get this but avoid that" with a distraction game. I used the EarthBound sprites and graphics because right now I'm on an EarthBound kick and I knew I could make some good distractions with these characters. (Bubble Monkeys)

You'll find the game a bit big (I optimized the audio to the lowest setting) because each map has its EarthBound music on it to enhance the EarthBound feel.

In the 2 try i got Mr Saturn, And the 3.. OMG why does pokey haves to appear in my 3 try

I like it!


Very addicting. Nice game.

Great but....

It is a good idea but hard when there are about 15 obstacles appearing at one time lol LOVING THE GRAPHICS lol


^^Good Points^^
I like the Earthbound theme in this. You had a bunch of different sprites throughout and different music and sound effects, all from the game itself. The animations were pretty good, and the game was definitely challenging for me.

^^Needs Improving^^
I don't really like when the Saturn men come out. I seem to die instantly, though I'm not sure if I'm not allowed to touch them. Really the big sprites just confused me a bit.

asceth responds:

The distractions do not effect you in any way except to distract you. The conducting menaces are the only things that you die from.

Some maps make it harder to see the menaces and butterflies which in turn can cause you to think you died randomly. But I assure you that the menaces are the only thing you die from. :)
