A short RPG story inspired in old-school RPGs like Earthbound, Golden Sun and Pokémon. This is my first pico-8 game, hope you like it!
Arrows: Move player - Move cursor
X: Interact - Select
Z: Open menu - Go back in menu - Close menu
You are Rio, born with the monster eye, a special ability that allows you to learn the abilities of your opponents in battle. You must stop the never ending winter by defeating the evil idols that reside in the mountain. To do so, you will need to learn abilities, level up your stats, and re-spec your stats accordingly based on the enemies you encounter.
There are three main stats:
ATK (Attack): Some abilities scale damage based on your ATK stat
AGI (Agility): The chance to dodge an attack, caps at 6
DEF (Defense): Each defense point will decrease damage by 1 in most cases, but damaging abilities that hit will always do a minimum of 1 damage
The menus will allow you to change abilities. In the menu, you will be able to read an ability's explanation, it will aid you to defeat the idols.
I hope you enjoy my little game, love the pico-8 community, be safe, and thanks for stopping by!
I'm always impressed and interested in turn-based RPGs written in Pico-8, @hanswolo. Here is a star for your fine work and - I have made a few changes in your code for keyboard repeat and only for the arrow keys during navigation.
No other code of yours has been changed or modified.
May I post it here and additionally post a link from my page to yours where more people can play and find your original ?
Thank you, @hanswolo. You can find your game listed HERE:
Looks like you used every byte. :) This version will remove some notes so it can be posted as a PNG but none of your credits. Gamers, to see all notes look to original cart at top.
And here is the mod for it with faster navigation for outside mapping:
Thank you, @zep. I am so very terribly sorry this happened to you - the loss of your carts. I will certainly check my own to see what is there and not.
Other cart makers, I wrote a post to show you where every cart you ever loaded or saved is including SPLORE. Find that HERE:
