Mini Unique-A-Thon #1 - Aqua

Hey y’all, I got some news. I’ve decided to host a spinoff of the UAT, the Mini Unique-A-Thon.

How Does It Work?

Anyone on Makecode can participate. If you wish to partake in the Mini UAT, this is how it works.

  • You have from 2023-03-16T04:00:00Z2023-03-24T04:00:00Z to reply your game to this topic.
  • Utilize the theme any way you decide, but make sure your game has an apparent aquatic theme.
  • Winner? More like winners! Three game devs will be awarded the “Pinchy-U’EY” trophy on March 27th.

Don’t worry about making AAA titles in a week, have fun, don’t stress, and you’ll make something great!

My submission!
In this game, you have a very leaky faucet that drops a variety of bubbles onto your beautiful beige kitchen counter. As bubbles pile up, some get pressured by other bubbles and pop, contributing to the rising water level… As more bubbles leak the floodwaters rise, eventually engulfing your entire kitchen.
… But it looks really pretty!

Here’s my game! :black_large_square::white_large_square:
Minefield

Try to navigate the submarine through the minefield for 5 minutes!
I used @meeeeeeeep1’s Menu add-on custom block to add a reset high score button in the settings menu.
Enjoy!

Woah spooky! Loving the grey theme, a little sad though. My high score is 67.

I hope this isn’t considered late I just found out today. In this game you are being chased by a shark, you also need to find the clam and collect it by pressing A on it. after that, a new level starts and you will be rewarded with a +1 score! Hope you enjoy it! (Also I added music)

Will there be another Mini Unique-A-Thon?

Honestly, I don’t know. I believe this format of competition is a lot more doable at the moment. But I also feel that Makecode’s official Mini Game Jams are more than enough.
