Struggled a bit lowering the token count, but hopefully it didn't suffer too much. Rotating sprite stuff!

Here's my contribution, Karate Duck. I hope it fits, it was 512 tokens when I closed out the project, but it might be 515 with the formatting for the collab cart.

@felixmreeve @HotSoup

Awesome job guys! I just added the two games!

We're halfway there!

P#28004 2016-09-04 00:44 ( Edited 2016-09-04 04:44)

I love that I stripped all words and text from my game for token count. It was like shipping a car with no seat belts.

P#28005 2016-09-04 00:59 ( Edited 2016-09-04 04:59)

Man, my game is way too big. Need to simplify it or change the idea completely...

P#28023 2016-09-04 19:01 ( Edited 2016-09-04 23:01)

@dollarone I feel your pain. I've nearly finished my game and I'm at almost DOUBLE the allowed token limit. Is it time to panic yet? :D


P#28033 2016-09-05 08:06 ( Edited 2016-09-05 12:06)

Just wanted to tell you that I have my game almost ready. I need to clean up (too much tokens right now) and add some music/fx

Here is a gif of it:

P#28046 2016-09-05 15:59 ( Edited 2016-09-05 19:59)

@hotsoup I know that feeling. I was like - memory management or sfx? But I kinda like how it made your game. It's very "cinematic" even if nothing moves.

@dollarone Good luck! We're all feeling the pressure when it comes to tokens

@Liquidream - oh jeez, good luck with that man.

@misato - Oh nice! Looks great!!!

P#28053 2016-09-05 17:34 ( Edited 2016-09-05 21:34)

are sfx and music banks separate? does anyone have any spare music banks I can grab?:S

edit: cancel that. I'm committed to the restrictions :)

P#28056 2016-09-05 18:50 ( Edited 2016-09-05 23:11)

@dollarone there's a few extra music banks actually!

P#28057 2016-09-05 19:49 ( Edited 2016-09-05 23:49)

it's cool, I squeezed in:)

here's the updated version of the cart with my game added!

edit: quick bug fix x2 :S

P#28068 2016-09-05 22:47 ( Edited 2016-09-06 02:47)

Like you guys, I'm trying to squeeze the game into its 512 tokens, and to make interesting levels.

P#28078 2016-09-06 03:48 ( Edited 2016-09-06 07:48)

can I have a slot here if I'm not too late? if i'm too late, put me in the backup list

P#28082 2016-09-06 06:45 ( Edited 2016-09-06 10:45)

Hey, if someone has a few tokens to spare, let me know. I'd at least like to squeeze in a print"game over!" so it doesn't look like my cart just hangs.

P#28088 2016-09-06 10:43 ( Edited 2016-09-06 14:43)

@dollarone Thanks for sticking that in there for me! Saves me time ;)

@brunetto \m/(>.<)\m/

@drcode awesome! Thanks for the update!

@ElGregos Looking great! Good luck man!

@adrian09_01 I've added you to the backup list!

@HotSoup We can also see how many tokens/chars are left over at the end of this jam :)

P#28094 2016-09-06 12:25 ( Edited 2016-09-06 16:27)

Here's my entry... Trust me, it can be beaten... Z to Jump!

To restart the game, hit [enter] and select restart. I recommend starting by heading towards the left...

Guys I'm going to be 1 week off and I don't have my game ready :( Can you wait for me or is it going to be too late? I can clean up the code and such in about a week. If it's too late then just sustitute me for another person, it'll be fine.

P#28132 2016-09-07 05:51 ( Edited 2016-09-07 09:51)

@dollarone I had to reimport your game - I noticed some extra pixels sections D-G. Not sure where they came from.

@drcode Got your game in! Thanks!

@misato At this point, I'm going to play it by ear. We've got a pretty big waiting list at this point, but I'm not sure how much longer the remaining 5 folks are going to take (cheepicus, Liquidream, ElGregos, johanp & catnipped), so we'll see! Thanks for keeping me up to date!

P#28146 2016-09-07 10:20 ( Edited 2016-09-07 14:20)

BTW, I'm working on another open-source pico-8 cart player (coded in clojurescript) and I think this would be the perfect demo cart, since it exercises a lot of the pico-8 features. Let me know if anyone has an objection with me posting a playable version of this colab on my site- I will link back to this post and credit the participants.

P#28147 2016-09-07 10:55 ( Edited 2016-09-07 14:55)

my game is nearing "feature" completion, then comes the shredding of tokens. it should fit, but it's real tight!

P#28149 2016-09-07 11:16 ( Edited 2016-09-07 15:16)

@drcode These carts are under CC4-BY-NC-SA, so it shouldn't be a problem :)

@catnipped whooohooo!

P#28175 2016-09-07 17:17 ( Edited 2016-09-07 21:17)

@josefnpat, oops, apologies. Thanks for fixing! I had a think and wanted to add the following:

          score = player_speed .. "\nhighscore: " .. dget(28)

... to line 549, just after the line that says:

score = player_speed .. "\nnew highscore!"

Can you add for the next release please? I'm not 100% sure on tokens but I think some of the other games didn't use all their. IF required I can delete some more brackets in my code to make space :)

@drcode, neat! that game is HARD :) I will beat it though...

P#28189 2016-09-08 04:21 ( Edited 2016-09-08 08:48)

hey @everybody, there are probably gonna be lots of empty space in the spritesheet. i would like to ask everyone who filled up their 4x4 sheet to draw some random items in their empty spaces. of course, if you for some reason need to keep it empty, please ignore this :*

@josefnpat i also would like to claim any remaining parts of the spritesheet whenever everyone is done with their games

P#28191 2016-09-08 07:27 ( Edited 2016-09-08 11:27)

Catnip, I have an empty in mine - but intentionally so.

P#28193 2016-09-08 09:29 ( Edited 2016-09-08 13:29)

@dollarone I've beaten it a single time, and it took three hours of effort :)

P#28219 2016-09-08 22:31 ( Edited 2016-09-09 02:33)

I'm working on mine don't bump me!

P#28224 2016-09-09 05:42 ( Edited 2016-09-09 09:42)

my game is done except for music... feel free to make a spacey chill track for me. anyone?

P#28225 2016-09-09 06:33 ( Edited 2016-09-09 10:33)

I didn't think I would have time, but eventually I ended up doing this.
fits in 512 tokens by hardcoding the data locations (did everything in first banks)
I guess you can put me in the backup list ! :) (or maybe next cart list ?)

P#28232 2016-09-09 15:01 ( Edited 2016-09-10 18:36)

@dollarone I'll have to check how many tokens you're using, otherwise I'll have to wait for everyone else's entry!

@catnipped You'll have to tell me what sections of graphics you use. There are also a lot of memory availible in map data that you can use! (Sections Q-W) I have a feeling there will be quite a bit of space seeing how most folks only use half their data :)

@cheepicus bump

@ultrabrite neat! I'll add you to the backup list!

P#28234 2016-09-09 15:43 ( Edited 2016-09-09 19:43)

@josefnpat yes of course. I updated my own game to make sure it's within the limits - attached is the newest cartridge with the updates!

@catnipped I had a go! I used one of the banks from my own music (29) and created four new ones 32->35. I just put the music in patterns 0-3. Check it out

ps. use if you want - or not. I will not be hurt/offended etc, I just wanted some more practice with the pico music editor and trying to re-use a sample in a new piece was fun :)

P#28247 2016-09-09 20:19 ( Edited 2016-09-10 01:07)

@ultrabrite That's amazing! (considering the limitations)

P#28255 2016-09-10 04:04 ( Edited 2016-09-10 08:04)

I should finish today or tomorrow. That moment when you find a 42 tokens long function that is no longer used :D
Is there a simple way to reset the cart within the code?

P#28256 2016-09-10 06:10 ( Edited 2016-09-10 10:10)

@dollarone wow! i really like it but it didn't quite fit. i made my own, slightly annoying but more fit tune.

@ElGregos ctrl/cmd+r

i'm having trouble copypasting my sprites to the P part of the graphics (it's in the map space). any ideas?

P#28258 2016-09-10 07:15 ( Edited 2016-09-10 11:15)

Sorry, I meant: is there a pico-8 command to reload the cart?
edit: I guess run() will do just fine.

P#28259 2016-09-10 07:51 ( Edited 2016-09-10 11:51)

Ow! I'm done except for sound/music and a not-too-painful token reckoning I hope.

P#28267 2016-09-10 10:34 ( Edited 2016-09-10 14:34)

As my game is made of levels (which design is what takes me so long), I managed to squeeze a cartdata savegame and browsing previously played levels. But I just discovered that cartdata are reset everytime you relaunch Pico. I can't see the point of cartdatas then. Is there something I misunderstand / misuse? How can I make persistent savegames?

edit: OK, I got it, the cartdata(id) command was missing, and I see it is already in josefnpat code, so everything's fine!

P#28297 2016-09-11 04:00 ( Edited 2016-09-11 09:27)

i've submitted my game in the discord chat. woop woop
it's original title is "lil'prince garbage collector" but i had to shorten it to "lil'trash prince"

P#28301 2016-09-11 06:44 ( Edited 2016-09-11 10:44)

I have not forgotten! May game is almost done, just need to tidy up a bit and shave of a few tokens... :D

P#28305 2016-09-11 09:31 ( Edited 2016-09-11 13:31)

All right here is my entry:

Cart #28306 | 2016-09-11 | Code ▽ | Embed ▽ | License: CC4-BY-NC-SA

Should be 509 tokens with the wrapper removed.

My high score is 431.

P#28307 2016-09-11 11:20 ( Edited 2016-09-11 15:20)

here is the cart updated with my game

note that for the other's sprites to show up they need to be flagged with the rightmost flag in the sprite editor. but we can add them as the cart gets updated

P#28324 2016-09-11 15:39 ( Edited 2016-09-11 19:39)

Okay I plonked my game into the cartridge catnipped just posted (and clicked the rightmost flag on my sprites)

My 1st Pico-8 game! It's based on a puzzle game idea I had a loooong time ago, when working on Amiga with Amos basic. I spent months on it and couldn't put the game together, only managed to make a nice editor. But with Pico-8, the most of it was done in an afternoon. To fit the 512 tokens and 4 kb code the game mechanics have been stripped down to the core, but well I hope you'll have fun. Once you finish a new level it is saved on the cartdata and reloaded when the game's relaunched, though I don't think you'll need more than an hour to finish the game. That was fun to make, and more than probably there will be a Stuck!2 with its full mechanics and own cart in the future.

edit: I made a jingle+sfx but kicked those after I found it a bit annoying and not essential to this kind of game, especially when you're already listening to music.

edit 2: the savegame will work once the game added to the collab cart.

P#28342 2016-09-11 18:16 ( Edited 2016-09-12 11:26)

@ElGregos: that is a cool little puzzle game!
