Shell Game

Based on the classic con-game of 'find-the-pea' as played in dark alleys and sketchy neighbourhoods as long as there have been nuts, legumes and suckers!

Controls/How to Play

All controls are done with the mouse.

Click on the middle shell to start the game.

Place your bet and follow the pea, the goal is to reach $100. If you lose all your money it's game over.

The game runs in windowed mode - fixed size: 960x720 px


This is my first published game, originally made for GameMaker Community Jam 37: under the theme "It knows something you don't."

This is a very early version of Shell Game, which is still in development.
Here are some of the features I hope to add:

  • 'Endless' mode & High-score board - try to beat the dealer in continuous rounds with ever-mounting difficulty.
  • 'Dodgy dealer' - The dealer will use sleight of hand to try to trick you! watch for the traps.
  • Alternate art for shells,
  • More variations on 'shuffling' animations.

Thanks for playing, please leave any feedback in the comments or @Roobicorn on twitter.
