Introducing Bamboo Ninja!

Kaboom Jam Entry @RoBlockHead and @JackFly26

This is our submission for the 2021 Kaboom Game Jam!

You must keep all of the bamboo shoots trimmed so that it doesn't break through your ceiling!

Beware though, as you chop off parts of the shoots, they'll start to grow faster!

This all started with us thinking of clever ways to interpret the word "shoot", to make this project stand out from the sea of shoot-'em-up games or slightly more creative photography simulators. A few ideas were:

  • A shoot-to-move control scheme (GMTK fans where y'all at)
  • A space invaders remake
  • A game where you yell "Shoot!" every time you mess up a simple task
  • A game about bamboo trimming (as in bamboo shoots)

You can guess which one we wound up doing.

Have Fun!!

OOH interesting spin on the topic (and great custom graphics, they look very polished)! ;D
I just wish Kaboom was mobile-friendly so I could play it ;-;, I'm missing some of these submissions.

I was clicking so much that I accidentally skipped the game over screen and couldn't see my high score .-. Great work tho :>

@JohannMhl
It saves your high score so you can view it later, even after closing the tab!

This is really good! There's def a lot of effort put into the art, and the idea of the game is really creative!

Oh man, this is a pretty good game. I like the spin on the theme, much more original than what I did, and it also has a pretty good difficulty curve. A bit hard for me though, but that's because I'm not use to using a mouse that much right now.

There is a lot of effort put into the art, and the idea of the game is really creative. I don't even like interactive fiction games, but this one was fun.
