Lamarr Is Going Home

Playing controls: Left & Right Arrows = Walk; Up arrow = Jump. Or use WASD (without S)
Note: ALL THE LEVELS ARE POSSIBLE! Two or three are just a bit trickier. If you really get stuck, just message me for the level passwords.

This game is based on an old Atari-2600 Bitcorp game called "Bobby Is Going Home", where the idea is to jump over the hazards and holes until you reach your home. I have adapted that game to a Half-Life 2 setting, depicting the homeward journey of Lamarr the headcrab after she is accidentally sent to Nova Prospekt during Gordon Freeman's teleporter accident in "A Red Letter Day". I've attempted to preserve a fair bit of the nostalgia value of the Atari-2600 in LIGH, but with a few "tech upgrades" here and there.

That was very nice.

This game is a nice tribute to the Atari Days of Old. Ah, that console sure had some great and amazingly crappy games. I enjoyed almost every bit of this game: the story, the gameplay, the music...

But MAN! That bridge level was FRUSTRATING! :P


Seeing Half Life 2 in sprites = awesome


There are SO many things I hate about this game.

The game extremely picky about pixels touching each other...alright that's fine. Have multiple things on the screen that may delay your movement...alright I can dig it.

But putting an object on the screen that people wouldn't consider a threat is just fucking stupid!

Better yet, the game has the nerve to have a fucking timer just to make the game even LESS fun!

Why add a timer? Almost every time someone adds some sort of timer mechanic to a game instantly ruins it, as it forces you to gun it making you mess up constantly.

Really, the graphics are great but the gameplay is just God awful. I like a challenge but seriously why should I keep playing this annoying game?

And I got to the sewer level till I quit trying.

You're right... You sure do hate this game.

nice game, very hard

I absolutely LOVE lamarr, possibly more than the WCC, and this game was great, except it was way to hard. You can barely just jump over stuff and I couldnt get past the 3rd level. I like the idea of the life timer thing thoguh, althoghu it was too hard. And althoghu it is good, I dont really think the pixelated theme goes with HL2.

I like Lamarr more than the Wellington City Council too! (But srsly, what's the WCC?)

On the third level, try jumping up, then moving to the right just as you pass over the Combine's stun-stick. If you just jump diagonally up and to the right, you won't make it past the second Combine. ;)
