Skeletons in the Closet PLUS

 

Find all bottles to move onto next stage. Avoid skeletons.

Use arrows to move, X to jump.

A tribute to IBM compatible games in CGA mode and an enhanced remake of jfroco’s game Skeletons in the Closet, a tribute to Sinclair ZX Spectrum games.

This is a very late submission to this most excellent idea for hugs’s No Pressure Appreciation Nicejam!

jfroco’s game is a tribute to the style of ZX-82 games, which they grew up on. I really liked the game when I played it in Pirate Kart V. Personally, I don’t have any particular nostalgia for the Spectrum, but my equivalent would be early Apogee-type shareware platformers . So my little headcanon is that this is the MS-DOS port from the late 1980s that alters the original Spectrum game, moves things around, and expands it a bit. All three original stages are adapted for this twelve-stage version!
