Alrighty, here is the first playable. I exported the sketch as a hex file, both with and without the bootloader are included in the zip, I'm not sure exactly what people need and if this is sufficient.
Anyway, let me know
If it doesn't work, also let me know.
I don't have time right now (midnight, 3 week old and 3 year old in house) to write up detailed instructions, suffice to say that the box in the top right shows what your guy is doing right now, and the b button is always attack. left right to move, up to jump, down to change action. Actions are place, craft, eat and mine.
Place only works if you have mined stone blocks. Eat only works if you have apples or gapples. View these things in the crafting window (hold action key A for a second or so with the craft action).
See if you can figure out some recipes in the craft window. You can save your progress after each stage (complete stage by walking through the door in the bottom right of the level).
Eat restores hearts by using gapples first if you are below 8 hearts (gapples restore 2 hearts) and regular apples after that (half heart). Mobs will do more damage the further through the game you go, and armour will protect you better the higher its level. Every 8 levels is a 'challenge dungeon' with a star block at the end. Collect 7 stars to be awesome. Every room has a 50% chance of a regular dungeon as well. Break the dungeon block for more awesome loot.
I think thats it, I sure hope someone is able to get it to work. If not let me know how to trouble shoot and i will fix tomorrow. Enjoy
