WHAT IS BITSY?

Bitsy is a small tool by Adam Le Doux for building little games with extremely basic graphics and gameplay - each object and tile can only have one primary color (usually based on a 3 color palette) and the game engine basically just allows you to move around in four directions and interact with people and items.

These restrictions sound harsh, but in fact are very helpful for building small focussed experiences and people have built a ton of interesting, charming and unique experiences since the tool was released.

WHY DOING THIS GAME?

My idea was: why not go and de-make a very beloved game of mine (Super Mario Land for Nintendo Gameboy) and try to emulate the gameplay as exactly as possible - using a tool that isn't intended for platformers at all and that has even simpler graphics than the original Gameboy? :D

So, here is the first "real" platformer done in Bitsy. It was a fun experiment, at least for one level. Hope you like it.

This game is super neat, the music fits it perfectly :)

Interesting game, I like the music and the sound effects but it is very repetitive. It would be neat if you could use the buttons on the "Pocket Boy" to move.

I liked it. The gameplay is pretty repetitive, but I definitely have the same soft spot for Super Mario Land that you do.
