Kick Head Update 2.2


The new version of Kick Head is now live at: http://cartoondan.com/games/kick2.html


There is a new level one where you compete in a kick head clan tournament to see who is the best kicker in the dojo.


The game now has a store where you can buy power ups and new moves. The coins you earn while playing are permanently saved, so you can save up your coins after multiple play throughs. The new moves you earn are also permanent so you can always use them once you earn them.


Above is the "Fat Scorpion Tail" power up. It Increases your strength during the next level. There are also power ups that give you health, boost your speed,  and increase the rate your spirit bar fills up.


This is the "Dragon Kick" special move. It is good for hitting enemies from a distance.

Diving Birds


Diving Birds is a "Launch" game, where you help a baby bird fly for the first time. Try to help the Legless bird fly as far as she can. When you hold down the mouse, the little birdie will do into a nose dive. If you hit clouds or other objects you will bounce off them and gain some height. The faster you are going down the higher you will bounce back up.

This is a diving bird.


This is one of the objects you can bounce on.

Ping's Quest - Pigs


Ping's Quest is going to be a story driven game with little cut scenes in between each level. The first chapter of the story will probably be about six levels long.



These are some of the pigs from chapter one. Sparky is a character in the story. He is Ping's friend and mount. Ping rides on him when going on trips into the dark forest. Sparky's nose also makes him an excellent tracker. He can sniff out a boysenberry pie from a mile away.

The Angry boars are not very friendly. They do not like Sparky or any other hairless pig. They are enemies. Ping and his fellow elves like the angry boars because they turn into ready to eat meat when you shoot them with an arrow.

Tortoise Tumble Version 1.4


Tortoise Tumble Version 1.4 is complete.
You can play it here: http://www.cartoondan.com/games/Tortoise_Tumble2.html



Here is a list of the items that were updated.

     - New game mode, Tactical Mode.
     - Global high scores were added.
     - Harder difficulties need to be unlocked.
     - New sound effects were added during game play.
     - Squares with upside down tortoises are now shaded dark to let you know
       that it is bad for tortoises to be on their backs.



The object of the game is to flip all of the tortoises right side up. You jump over a tortoise to flip it over, kind of like checkers.

The biggest new feature is the Tactical Mode. Tactical mode has no time limit, so you can play it at your own pace and plan out your moves. You have a limited number of moves to complete the game with. At the end of each level you are awarded a set number of extra moves. You can earn more bonus moves by finishing a level with a tortoise on a "+1" square.

Rocket MX



My newest game Rocket MX is now live at http://www.cartoondan.com/games/RocketMX.html.

Jump off ramps and use your turbo to stay in the air and land gently. When you land your bike make sure to use turbo to slow down your speed and land softly. If you hit the ground too fast you will crash. You can hit jumps at any speed and safely bounce off them.

Perform tricks to earn extra points. Score as many points as you can.

I had an old version of Rocket Mx that I made about eight years ago. When I made it, I thought it was pretty good. When I played it again a few months ago I no longer liked it very much. I decided to remake it from scratch. I like the new version a lot better. I wonder If I will still like it eight from now.
