Trip (n.) - an exciting or unusual experience (source: Merriam-Webster) - ThatSnail - Competition Entry
A very trippy platformer based on discovering both your abilities and who you are. Would say more but that'd ruin it.
EPILEPSY WARNING: Contains flashing lights that may cause seizure.
-Arrow Keys to Move and Jump
-X to skid
NOTE: You walljump further when not holding UP, but higher when you are holding UP. Useful to traverse certain areas.
A few people told me that the flashing epileptic screens aren't very readable. Here's the dialogue if you can't read it:
"Do you remember?"
"When you were young and healthy"
"But now you're overdosing on meds"
"I'll prescribe something; you can be happy!"
"This isn't real, don't listen to them"
"You are hallucinating, you are a dying old man in a hospital"
"It is time to go back"
It still probably makes no sense.
Some people are having trouble with some parts of the game, so if you need help see below.
Go to the right and pick up the Jump medication. Move all the way to the right of the map and pick up the Walljump medication. Walljump up the blocks and go to your left, to the shaft you passed earlier. Walljump up the shaft and pick up the Skid medication. Walljump to the alcove in the left of the shaft. While holding X, jump up (tap UP twice) without holding any other arrow keys). You should slide onto the ledge to your right. While holding X, jump over the gaps. (One of the blocks actually has a messed-up bounding box, so you'll have to jump earlier). Pick up the rocketjump upgrade to your right.
After getting the rocketjump upgrade, jump over the edge to your left and hold DOWN to charge it. You should shoot straight up and enter a little alcove with the Brush medication inside. Then rocketjump down the central tunnel that you walljumped up earlier.
Go to your left through the brush and down the mini-maze thing. Go to your right and jump off, holding DOWN to charge up your rocketjump.
This part takes some skill; you should reach an L shaped block when you jump up. Hug the wall and press UP to walljump off of it (but don't hold RIGHT; that'll kill your speed). Hold X and skid across the platforms. Make sure to jump on the last platform too. As soon as you jump off the second platform, hold DOWN to charge up your rocketjump and land in the tunnel. You should end up going straight up. When you reach the upper-left corner, walljump off of it (again, not holding LEFT) and hold X to skid across the blocks.
Skid as far to the right as you can until you reach a bottle of medication. Pick that up. Lastly, rocketjump up the shaft again, go down the mini-maze, rocketjump off the ledge to your left, and go through the tunnel that was closed up earlier to get the last bottle of medication.
