Homemade Video Game

I tried making a video game out of paper and a box (and a few other craft items) once as a kid. Of course this was before I had a Nintendo or Playstation so it would have been quite the item to own, and quite an accomplishment in engineering as well. I believe it was to feature a spaceship that had to fly through some obstacles… like meteors, along a rolling paper backdrop. I don’t think I ever quite figured out how it would keep score. Wally has a pretty solid scoring system in place though, permanent win for the win!

    Making things out of paper used to be my trick! My parents wouldn’t let us have a TV in the house, so I made one out of paper. The picture didn’t change though ๐Ÿ˜•

  • Huh.

  • i totally agree with qtpa2tnhร‚ยฉ2007,aka รฏยฃยฟ Apple iPod iPhone,iMac FREAK!!! WE WANT THE IPHONE! engadget is giving one away free!!!!!!

    nice comic tyler

  • Cool video game. ๐Ÿ™‚ I still have the old Super Nintendo. Man, my game systems are old. ๐Ÿ˜ก

  • I made one too, based on yours!
    Theirs a penguin and a polar bear, they have to make combined animals! The judge says which one is best and the person who gets the judge gets 10 points! This continues until game is over. The person who has the most points becomes the “King of Antarctica!”
    P.S. I am DYING for Wally’s backstory! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Penguin Guru

    It’s great that your doing daily updates again Tyler. :mrgreen: I have a Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, PS1, and Gamecube. I’m saving for a Wii and/or PS3. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Guys! Don’t waste your money on the first edition of an iphone. โ— You know they are just gonna come out with better versions of an iphone. So save your money for a year, then buy a better version of the iphone. ๐Ÿ’ก Keep up the good work Tyler! ๐Ÿ˜†

  • My video games are OLD. I have a GBA, a GBA SP, a Dreamcast (I am amazed that it still works) and a PS2. Most of my friends have a Nintendo DS. ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ˜ฅ But along with my PS2 I have an Eyetoy Camera!!!! :mrgreen:
    My ipod isn’t really and ipod. It’s actually a, er. . . Sandiskpod.

  • Poor Osborne. Yet Wally seems so joyful. . . :mrgreen: ๐Ÿ˜ก

  • Thank you,totaliphonemacipodappletvfreak .

  • Anybody want a user on my site?Email me : . What about you , totaliphonemacipodappletvfreak,you want a user?

  • wow did wally get some sort of cheat code or something…thats the advantage, if you made the game, you know all the cheat codes

  • Quababababa

    I love your comic. I want to marry it.

  • Hi guys! I’m back!
    Tyler, I have an idea for a comic:
    Wally stares at Osborne, who is tap-dancing, and asks “Osborne, what are you doing” “I’m tap-dancing” And then Wally would try to tap-dance, but crackes the ice and Osborne falls into the water.
    Do you like my idea ๐Ÿ˜• ๐Ÿ˜• ๐Ÿ˜•

  • gosh the time on this one hour behind right now it’s 9:26a.m.

  • Penguin Boy

    Hey. I can’t believe Tyler hasn’t seen Surf’s up yet. I’ve seen it twice. The first time I saw it, it wasn’t in our local theater, so i drove myself 25 miles to see it. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ The second time, it was at my city theater. I took my sister to see it, she didn’t like it really well though. She just saw Ratatouille last friday and said it was a lot better. ๐Ÿ˜ก But I love Surf’s Up it is so funny. It’s a must for all penguin lovers.

  • Guess what???

    BALD EAGLES, according to the news, are NO LONGER ENDANGERED!!!

    As of last night.


    ah yes, Nintendo wii. i WILL get one when there are some in stock!!!

  • snowyforest

    bet the game’s name is “Wally always wins”. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Wally deserves 2 very weak congrats. 1, for beating Osbourne and 2, for finding out how to draw a stick polar bear! ๐Ÿ˜•

  • I think Wally should stick with making ice sculptures. He’s not a very good artist. And besiddes, speaking of ice sculptures, couldn’t he make a video game out of ice sculptures?
    Hmm, how do you play the game? Just sit there and watch? Zzzz. . .
    Still, this is a good prank. . .

  • WWW

    i agree!! ice sculptures are his specialty

  • Friendly Penguin

    Okay, I admit it, I currently own NO video games WHATSOEVER… except for some computer games, over three quarters of which are not installed and I do not play. Heh, I guess I DO appreciate books more than computer… contrary to popular belief. Yay for grammar and making myself feel smart! *AKA I wish I could write something funny-* Hey, wait a minute, that ”contrary to popular belief” is kinda funny.
    Great comic, I wonder if Osborne will now jump on Wally or punch him with his flippers or do something resembling revenge. Say, making a video game where Osborne always wins and his character looks like some giant mutant penguin or something. Wait, how can he write or draw with flippers? Curious…
    WHOA! I wrote ”KINDA”. That’s like, BAD GRAMMAR!!! But it makes me sound smarter in the long run. :mrgreen:

  • Bramblefire

    Yeah, Friendly, you enjoy WRITING BOOKS on the COMPUTER!!! anyway, I should try to get an EVIL DUDE to appear when I post this. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

    That is awesome steve-o!!! I don’t have *cough cough* ANY from ”To be a King” onwards. Shocking, isn’t it? Ah yes, I plan to buy them in good time, but it could take awhile, seeing that our town has NO BOOKSTORE! *gasp*. Shocking, yes. But I will get the books, no matter WHAT!

  • Brambefire

    Hi guys! I also have Guardians of Ga’Hoole books 1-11 (aka The Capture to The Coming of Hoole) And I’ve got Warriors books 1-6 & Warriors New Prophecy books 1-5 of 6 & Warriors manga triolgy 1 of 3 & Warriors Power of Three 0 of 6 and The Secrets of The Clans (Warrior field guide). Every time I finish a Warriors series, a new series pops up into book stores! Last summer I read the first 6 Harry Potter books in one month. Friendly would know that, right, Friendly?
