Desert Bus II
« on: May 30, 2016, 08:13:51 am »
Based on this new game by DJ Omnimaga, I decided to make a spiritual successor to Desert Bus. If you're unaware, it's an unreleased game in which you drive a bus from Tuscon to Las Vegas...for 8 straight hours. No traffic, no turns, no pause feature, no nothing, you have to just drive for 8 hours.

In this game, you're that same guy in that same bus, but along the way, you crashed into a tree, and are waiting for the towing company to arrive (which will take 8 hours). During the wait, you have nothing to do but stare at the wreckage. Also, it's a hot day, and you tire easily, so you must drink enough water to stay awake the whole time, too. Press any button but CLEAR to drink water.

Oh, and it really does take 8 hours to wait. Try it! See how big of a score you can get!

Bump.

Now I added a proper debug mode! Good luck triggering it ;) .

Also, it's been 5 hours in the sun, and I think I'm starting to hallucinate...

Dat :walrii:

Also I like how that Game Over screen has a layout similar to a RAM Clear. <_<


I also edited your topic title since I added it to the downloads section (so it will get sorted properly)

It probably depends if someone is willing to port it to KnightOS or something else that doesn't require illegally hosting a TI ROM. :P

I bet the game could easily be done in HTML5, though.
