Nitrome - 'Untitled' Game Preview

Beta elements

Found in the code of the game is a a .gif of a bubble, and a .gif for green electricity. Strangely, these two .gifs exist in the coding for the game Chisel 2 as well.

Trivia

  • The name of the game was suggested by Jazzy from Facebook.
  • The game seems to combine elements from Twang and the Chisel series. Moving stretchy rods around was first seen in Twang, some enemies also seem to act similar to some Twang enemies. The art looks very much like Chisel art, the purple gears in the game are also from Chisel.
  • On level eighteen, the player has to traverse a house made out of many blue branches. Most of the objects the player encounters are household objects made out of branches.
  • On one level, the game makes reference to 'some hairless pink monster' who have cut down parts of the Canopy. It is possible it as a reference to humans.
  • When the flags go up at the end of a level, they make the same sound as Bomba when he touches a star.
  • The background in Small Fry is highly similar to the background of this game. This tells that is highly probable that Jon Annal made the background for Small Fry seeing that there's no other artist in Canopy apart from Jon Annal.
  • When Canopy dies, it makes the same sound from the Frost Bite series when the Eskimo kills an enemy.
  • This was the last game to be released on Nitrome.com 1.5.
