Editorial Note

This article is an entry in our AppInnovation Contest. Articles in this sub-section are not required to be full articles so care should be taken when voting.

This is my retro inspired game for touch screens that i love for the app inovation contest.

It is written in agk basic by the gamecreators and i have plans to make it open source when its finished.
Because it simply mean i can play more games if i help others .


Jump,run,collect and avoid traps to reach the end.

My simple idea is rick dangerous meets mario and i have already done about 50 % of the game.

it uses touch screen or keyboard for controls.

I use box 2d physics for all physical stuff thats fun.

I also use overdraw so there is no black borders wathever the device resolution,but widescreen devices get an advantage of seeing more of the map.

The game will have 12 levels in its first release but i have plans to double it later on.

I havent added the shooting aspect but have plans for it when the other stuff is a bit more polished.

Latest updates to my entry.

Old video files.


first steps.

old gameplay video.

My touch screen tests on android device. (i dont have an touch screen computer.)


Early apk test file for android that is outdated.(its buggy but shows the early touch screen controls.)


When the game is done so should anyone find the complete media and project files at the gamecreators agk thread hopefully.

Points of Interest

I pretty much more love the fun of coding than actually making any programs.

About the Author

Hobby game maker/programmer.
I live in an small town in sweden called simrishamn and started programming with stos on atari.
After many years so did i start to use dark basic and also have fooled around with unity,c++ and java.

My current programming platform is AGK basic (App game kit) because it saves me time and makes me work faster.
Time is something i dont have to much after real life kicks in.

This is an hobby and i love it.
