My entry for the My Famicase Exhibition is “Wani Wani Picnic”! (Wani means gator!) View all the awesome entries here!
Guide Ally the hungry gator to the picnic. If any baddies get in your way, it’s ok, just gobble ‘em up! But something tells me Ally might get full before she reaches her goal!
I made up this game by imagining what kind of game I’d like to play as a kid. Back then, I often found myself more interested in the enemies in games than the heroes, because the animal and monster characters seemed so much more interesting than the “boring” humans. I also loved games where you could chow down on pixel art food. So I came up with this game staring my favorite animal, an alligator, eating her way to the finish line. (In the “surprise” ending, she makes it to the picnic, but isn’t hungry anymore. The end!) The title is a parody of the Japanese whack-a-gator game, “Wani Wani Panic.”
That sounds like my ideal childhood game, too! (I'd still want to play it today, haha) You really nailed how box cover artwork looks for old school games, with the enemies getting ready for an attack and everything. I really loved games with eggs, too, sort of like Super Mario World, with the baby yoshies that hatch out of eggs, or my personal favorite, Yoshi's Island, which has tons of eggs~ <3
