Marshie's Malloween Mix-Up

This Halloween game was released at the same time as Malloween Commercial, and prior to 3 Times Halloween Funjob. It's similar to the game Ikaruga for the Arcade, Japanese Dreamcast and GameCube in that you must master two different "colors" (in this case black and orange). You can collect marshmallows of the same color as your current aura, but watch out for ones that don't match!

How Do I Do It? (Instructions)

When Marshie looks like (Marshie icon with orange circle), collect (orange marshmallow icon) and press (SPACE bar) to bomb them into (orange bag icon). If Marshie looks like (Marshie icon with black circle), collect (black marshmallow icon) and press (SPACE bar) to bomb them into (black bag icon). Press (A key) to switch between (Marshie icon with orange circle) and (Marshie icon with black circle). If Marshie looks like (Marshie icon with black circle) and collects (orange marshmallow icon), he loses energy (and vice versa). Press (P key) to pause the game. (Can icon) increases speed. (Bag of malloweens icon) refills your bombs. (Brown bag icon) increases your capacity. Do it!

Glitches

  • After the first level, the level counter in the corner displays the previous level, rather than the current level.
  • If you press caps lock, the A key will no longer work. (Seems they just programmed it for lower case.)
  • In the flash file if you pause the game you can't move, yet you can still switch and drop the bombs.

Fun Facts

Trivia

  • This game used to be a Secret Page, not accessible by any other page on the website.
  • This is the only game on the New Games Page not made by Videlectrix.

Remarks

  • Instead of "Loading", it says "lourding". This may be a reference to the Heavy Lourde.

Real-World References

  • The creepy song at the beginning is from Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D".
  • The sound Marshie makes when he dies is from the Mega Man games, as is the pattern of circles left behind.
  • The sound made when you pause is used in a lot of the NES games made by Konami, examples being Bayou Billy, Blades of Steel, and Contra.
  • The instructions look like the picture stories in the kids magazine Highlights for Children.
  • The energy bar is from Capcom's Mega Man series.
  • The "one color hurts and the other helps" feature is from Atari's Ikaruga
