My entry to the first #ToyBoxJam is, a PICO-8 remake of...
  Alfredo's Stupendous Surprise!

(Originally created by Tom HallJohn Romero - for Softdisk Issue #98)

I made it as best as I could, within the jam limitations
(e.g. only using pre-defined assets!)

haha nice one Paul! On my first go, I died at the flames with a deadly burp :P
Great jam entry!

Thanks a lot Roy! Aww... happens to the best of us! πŸ˜‚πŸΊπŸ”₯

Looks like Dragon's Lair to me :] Same deep gameplay (but too cute to stop playing!)

Thank you, Sir!

Dya know what? I never noticed the parallels when playing the original, but you're RIGHT!
Tom + John have a LOT to answer for! (I'll let you tell them, tho!)😁
