Games I've Made
Lafe Travis Games
A sequel to Exidy's 1981 coin-op classic Venture. Winky
must collect treasures from the nine dungeon worlds in order to save his sweetheart Pinky
from the greedy Wizard Exidy.
Dungeons include Earth, Fire, Water, Air, Desert, Ice,
Enchanted, Video and Mystery worlds. Rooms in each dungeon are tailored for each
It was made with Klik & Play and requires Windows to
run. You'll also need at least a 486/50 with 8 mb ram -- otherwise some of the levels run
too slow and are impossible to complete.
(Freeware version 1.3 -- 9.8 mb)
I'd like to redo Venture 2, using
Click & Create instead.
It will include performance enhancements, extra levels, and high score saving.
The gameplay will be made easier too. Let me know of any improvements you'd like to see.
This old-timer cannot move through the mazes as fast as his
other relatives. The ghosts are just as old, and have escaped from the "Old-Ghosts
Home" to have one more chance at catching their old enemy before they all pass away.
There are 13 mazes to master, 12 intermissions, and 30 different prizes to gobble up.
You can now download Grandpa

FUTURE GAME PROJECTS PLANNED
My School - The Game
I still want to design a game based on the horror
film series I've made. It will be a cross between Berzerk, The Heist, Adventure and
Keystone Kapers. You'll play the role of a student in the school, who must avoid Kevin,
while trying to find a way to destroy him. Many parts of the game will pay homage to the
actual series of films. I plan on incorporating images from the videos. Audio clips will
also be used. It's a long term project, still in the planning stages.
A climbing game like Donkey Kong. You are jungle
explorer Blaise on an expedition with your girlfriend Brenda. She is kidnapped by a Lion
and brought to the top of a tall mountain. Donkey Lion rolls coconuts down the slope.
Blaise must climb up multiple levels in order to rescue Brenda. Players of this game will
be asked "How High Can You Try?" Still in the development stage.
Mr. Do!'s Zoo
I'd like to make a FIFTH Mr. Do! game, tentatively
titled "Mr. Do!'s Zoo". It would be a cross of Mr. Do!, Zookeeper, Blueprint,
Ladybug, and Fantasy. The plot would revolve around Mr. Do! having to get all of the
animals back in their cages. I'd like there to be elements of keys, gates, fences, cages,
and a refreshment stand. The Alpha Monster would make an appearance, giving Mr. Do!
chances to spell EXTRA. He would use his ball as a weapon again. It would likely be a maze
game, but not a chase game like Pac-Man. But I need to brainstorm more ideas. I haven't
come up with the actual gameplay yet.
Other Mr. Do! games I had thought about creating
were: Mr. Do!'s Candy Store, Mr. Do!'s Haunted House, and Mr. Do!'s Circus - but I've
settled on Mr. Do!'s Zoo, because it sounds rhymy and catchy.
Does anyone have ideas for what they'd like to see
in a new Mr. Do! game?
