INTRODUCTION

As you seen on TV youtube, in Moleman 4 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nV0ZqBFf9ak) or Vakondok 4 for magyars (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOzcDPCNd_I) from around 16:00: you have to catch the final master tapes thrown by programmers through the window, because your airplane at Ferihegy Airport will fly soon. Yes, TAPES, because the Commodore programmers also throw FLOPPY DISKS. Its not your quest, but if you catch them, it holds a place in your hand. You can hold 5 items, so you should count it in your head. After that it will dropped next items, and your T-shirt changed to red. You have to put the items in the taxi, just go there and hit. Now you can earn points: casettes only, disks worths 0 point (but your hand is now free again). Your T-shirt switch back to green. You can miss 10 casettes then the game over.

Hope you will enjoy the game.

If  you like the game, come back to next season of Basic 10 liner contest, i hope i can write another game based on the soon released Moleman 5 movie. Moleman 4 is my favorite in the series, so you sound watch it. I also recommended Moleman 2, and i know Moleman 5 also will be great. Please check https://moleman4.com/ or https://vakondok4.hu/ for more information.s

INSTRUCTIONS:

You can use lefft and right arrow keys to move, catch the items and count them, because you cannot hold and will drop after 5 of them. Go to the taxi on the left side and press "left arrow"  key to put the items to the taxi (Disk: 0 point, Casette: 1 point)

If you missed 10 casettes the game is over. You can restart by pressing "Y" or quit if you press other key.

Enjoy the game!

 

CONTROLS:

left arrow - left move

right arrow - right move

at the end: Y key pressed restarts the game others will exit.

 

CODE DESCRIPTIONS:

I have to used constants to reduce the size of the lines. I also have to used some lines twice, for ex. line two: its draw the house in first time, then this line is for displaying the blinking and boring status (if you dont move for a while)

0-2 background: house, etc

2/2: player in bored status (you didnt move him for a while)

3,4: player move phases

5: Main control part: keyboard, and events

6: Draw the taxi in first time, and set the items, then choose the item and display points

7:first time: background drawing, then "earn the points if you are at the taxi" or restart the game if "y" pressed or quit

8: window open/close, decide which side to will drop the item: left or right side

9: item move, is it cached or dropped?
