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.

Interesting concept.

Just wish it weren't so goddamned hard to jump over a f'in combine.

Picky Passwords

The passwords are so picky! I keep typing in "A BRIDGE BRIGADE (ABRIDGED)" and it doesn't work. Also, there should be a lives counter. Other than that, it was a great game

Great animation!

I think you put a really good effort into the graphics while still maintaining a lot of detail with that old 'nostalgic' look. Unfortunately I found the levels a bit vexing to play since the jump animation had to be very precise each time, and a few of the sounds got a bit irritating after a while.
Otherwise I thought this was a pretty neat concept that could be worked upon- seeing HL2 in pixels was great!

I think so too. I'd like to adapt it to a tile-based platformer someday.

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.

My favourite headcrab

The lovely pixel art was all that I needed to see to just continue playing the game.

This game's just adorable, no matter how frustrating it is.
