Your Thursday Silly: Canabalt For Pink Daleks

This really is tremendously silly.

A few days ago we brought you news of Alien Black Hole, the game by eight-year-old Ross. In the comments, RobF (of Retro Remakes) explained that he makes all his games with his six-year-old as a consultant. Which, he claims, is how Canabalt For Pink Daleks came about. “Course, when you let him loose with him free to tell me everything he wants in there, you end up with this,” he says. I ran 233 rels.

    Yaaay, thanks for posting this for all and sundry RPS!

    I ran some rels.

  2. Riotpoll says:

    I ran 372 rels.

  3. Wilson says:

    Heh, so random. I only got 232, on my third try.

  4. Doug F says:

    I would love to see “the imagination of a small (crazy) child brought to life by a talented adult” become a trend.

    This, and Axe Cop are both absolutely magical in their madness.

  5. Ricc says:

    I love that the enemies are constantly moonwalking towards you.

  6. Nehacoo says:

    I love the sounds.
    Also, 275 rels.

  7. Alec Meer says:

    Best game ever.

  8. Veracity says:

    Isn’t someone going to whine that rel is a unit of time? Because I don’t want to embarrass myself by going there.

    A mere 291. It’s fantastic, but I dunno about longevity without achievements and leaderboards.

    That kraken thing and this have compensated many times over the whole minutes I wasted grimacing at loved.

  9. HarbourMaster says:

    400+ rels before I got bored. Obligatory child/adult art hybrid reference: Full Life Consequences.

    Any know how to get just the audio that plays? Is there some way to get it from the file?
