Hi there! You've probably reached this page from the Freeplay website in search of the elusive 'Up Down Ready' which took Best Design in this year's awards.

UPDATE: Hello! If you've arrived here from StumbleUpon, why not go play the game now on Kongregate! With high scores and EVERYTHING.

The versions of the game that were on this page were hosted on Dropbox. Since the recent spike in traffic, Dropbox has cut off access to my public folder. I will hopefully be migrating this stuff across to an actual server, but the version on Kongregate is the official release.

I'm Delia, the Sword Lady half of Sword Lady and the Viking. You can find my teammate over here. We are third year students in the Games Design course at Griffith University, and Up Down Ready (previously known as Horse) is our first semester project from this year, made using Adam Atomic's free Flixel library.

We entered it in the Freeplay Awards for a lark, and were incredibly surprised and excited to make it to the finals and take away an award. We hope you enjoy playing the game as much as we enjoyed making it!

The progress of fishman

Gradually getting somewhere with this. There is a newer, more playable and commented-code type version of the unity project on Dropbox. It suffers, at the moment, from grey box lolz visuals, but the key things are there.

To be honest, I'm not sure how well it's expressing the gameplay though. I know the theory of the mechanic is okay, but in practise it may well turn out to be a little lacking. Hmm.

Trying to nut out some better visual feedback for the player and tweak the feel of the gameplay now.

We are only going to spend at most another day on this before we move on to prototyping Horse in Flixel.
