Name: Kajiru! Kajiru!
Type: Pacman-esque
Music: 8bit Chocobo theme

This was our first year project. We had twelve weeks to make it and in typical university student fashion I left it till the last week and whipped this up yesterday. The program we are using is Game Maker Lite 8.1 so for those unfarmiliar with it, it is very limited to what it can do. I'm fond of arcade style games so I drew inspiration from Pacman. The guidelines were to produce a three leveled executable game that was playable, a case cover and an A4 poster to promote it.

If you could take five minutes out of your day to give it a go and give me some feedback, it'd be greatly appreciated!

Game: Here!
Case Front: Here!
Case Back: Here!
A4 Poster: Here!

For those interested in the grading scheme, the guidelines are below:

        both game and packaging are of a standard that could be made available for sale.
B1       game and/or packaging need a little work before commercial release.
B2       game and/or packaging need more work before commercial release.
C         both game and packaging are acceptable but need much more work.
        game and/or packaging are unacceptable and need much more work.
E         game over.

As you can see my lecturers have quite the sense of humor.

Thank you for taking time to read this.
Have a good day!
