January 2022 - Nicky Boom
« on: January 03, 2022, 08:37:14 am »
OCS/ECS Game of the Month for January 2022, is Nicky Boom!

After little Nicky's grandfather was kidnapped by the cruel Zoldrane the Sorceress to force him to help her make an evil spell, the boy sets on a journey through a fantastical land to defeat the witch and save the old man and the world. The player controls Nicky who can walk, jump, and throw apple cores to defend himself from Zoldrane's monstrous minions. The player can pick up other items to throw at monsters, such as bouncy balls and logs that can be also used to build bridges at certain parts of the levels. Nicky is also able to jump on enemies to defeat them, which is often more difficult but the killed monsters may drop items. The game consists of eight levels based on four separate themes, including swamp, forest, and castle.

Forgot how terrible I am at 'up-to-jump' in platformers.  I died a few times in puddles of water!
