Stinky Snake has been updated to include a dialogue system, main menu system, and more complex interaction with a number of the non-player characters, such as, the unicorn.

Dialogue System

There is a new dialogue system added to the game to communicate the story more effectively. In some cases, the player will be frozen in place until the exchange is completed, while others are purely informational.

Difficulty Levels

The default difficulty level is set to normal. For a less difficult experience, set this to easy under the Main Menu > Options > Controls. The boss interactions are based on difficulty levels as well. The more difficult, the more health the Boss will have, the more stomping and coconuts that will be needed to eliminate the boss.

Easy

No punching from the Skunks. Recommended for younger player. When you fall into the water or loose life, you do not loose anything in your inventory but a life item. Running into the saws cause 25% damage to the Player.

Skunk eliminator can be used up to 4 times, depending on your current health.

Normal

Skunks do punch back. You loose half of you coin count when you loose your life in the game. Running into the saws cause 50% damage to the Player.

Skunk eliminator can be used up to 4 times, depending on your current health.

Hard

Skunks do punch back. You loose all of your coin when you loose your life in the game. Running into the saws cause 100% damage to the Player, the equivalent of loss of life.

 

Ways to hurt the Skunks

  1. Bump into them; the player will also get hurt with this move.
  2. Stomp on their heads.
  3. The most effective method to get rid of a coconut is the use of a coconut. Hit them with a coconut or a coconut cannon that can be found on Level 3.
  4. Push them off a platform before they punch you
  5. Ignore them completely but will not add to the score in the game.
  6. Use the Skunk Eliminator that can be found on Level 5. This method results in hurting the player as well.

Some Odds and Ends

Health Reload

This is the Health Reload that refills the Health heart under the Level number. On some levels, a large pineapple does the same thing as well.

 

 

These are lives that you are collecting.

 

Take these to get to the next level in the game.

 

 

 

 

The player will need to collect the clover shown here to get any help from the leprechaun  in much later levels. You get this on visiting the witch multiple times with a dozen limes.
