I used @matthughson's Advanced Micro Platformer - Starter Kit as a template for the PICO-8 platformer. Thank you!

I'm thinking of creating a console version of this game.
I would appreciate it if you could share your thoughts or leave a comment.

That was really clever and fun. It took me a while to get used to the controls, but I can't see how it could have been any better with the number of buttons. puzzles were great and graphics were really nice (doing colours changes for different modes was very effective).

More levels please

P#131929 2023-07-13 18:49

that's super awesome! the only thing is i accidentally recorded over my tall jumps and got softlocked :/ but if you create a console version of this, i would totally play it.

P#131931 2023-07-13 19:12

The concept of recording and replaying is very original. A bit hard to adapt at the beginning but then fun to play. Also i like the graphical design!

P#131965 2023-07-14 11:28

Holy shit, a really original concept made well

P#132224 2023-07-22 02:29

Really cool game! Well done :)

P#132394 2023-07-25 23:50

This game gives me a sense of fun and joy. I like the graphics of this game

P#132395 2023-07-26 01:20

I'm obsessed with this. This concept is so expandable. You also taught it very clearly and made me feel like a huge genius. Absolutely wonderful work.

P#132532 2023-07-29 16:12

excellent take on the ‘time control’ mechanic - second other comments that an expanded level set is needed!

P#132552 2023-07-30 05:21

Fun game to speedrun

P#132624 2023-08-01 05:11

@JROMHacks A time in the 1:1X's took me quite a few tries, but I eventually got a 1:18, just a little bit faster than your time. (not that I was trying to beat your time specifically; I just wanted a sub-1:20 time.) Below is a GIF of the full run:

@Kaius I am speed

106 baby

P#132660 2023-08-02 16:15 ( Edited 2023-08-02 16:15)

Me gusta tu juego :)

P#132674 2023-08-02 23:21

Very cool game. You could probably make many more fun puzzles using this mechanic.

P#132693 2023-08-03 15:08 ( Edited 2023-08-03 15:09)

a fun experience, the main mechanic is super clever. There's a lot of potential for crazy puzzles and twists

P#132702 2023-08-03 19:03

love it! its a fun idea i beat it

P#132704 2023-08-03 20:07

very fun game! i'd really look forward to even more puzzles using this concept

P#132910 2023-08-09 17:27


*if you ever wonder how I got into these, then:

just "think out of the box" from the first room you spawned.

P#132917 2023-08-10 07:42 ( Edited 2023-08-10 07:46)

Such a great little game! Surprisingly captivating

Love the mechanics

P#132998 2023-08-13 03:34 ( Edited 2023-08-13 03:34)

i found the secret rooms but im not sure how to actually get into them

P#133100 2023-08-15 19:33

@JROMHacks Sorry it took me a couple of weeks to get back to you (busy with other things, you know how it goes), BUT, after about half an hour of failed attempts...

I can conclude that I'm NEVER speedrunning this game again.

P#133152 2023-08-16 17:35

Checked the game out for about an hour and managed to beat it in under a minute! (after getting exactly 1:00 twice before that lol)

EDIT: Oops looks like I missed some strats looking at the other posts from here, so you could definitely cut down on a few more seconds

P#133278 2023-08-20 00:46 ( Edited 2023-08-20 00:51)

Got a 1:10 on mobile. Currently relearning the controls on computer so I can record a gif, but props to you lot for figuring out that route.

Speedrunning aside, this is such a good game. I will say, most of the game feels like a tutorial with not much room for error - that's why people are asking for more levels - but the mechanics are so unique and well executed. The are is also incredible, the black and white style is done so well. Can't wait to see what you do next :)

P#133296 2023-08-20 10:36

@Kaius @Vexxter
Game, Set, Match.

I expect this record to be tied eventually but I'll be surprised if it's ever topped.

P#133302 2023-08-20 12:02 ( Edited 2023-08-20 20:11)

I found a room by getting out of bounds and falling to my doom.

To get out of bounds try using the cassette tape against a top left corner of a room. I don't know how to replicate it, but I'll tell you that it was just to the left of the first use of the cassette tape.

P#133369 2023-08-21 23:54 ( Edited 2023-08-22 00:04)

found a backward route https://youtu.be/e2UoWyi-Ze4

P#133738 2023-08-30 16:50

P#134508 2023-09-17 22:50

This was extremely clever, please make a sequel!

P#135008 2023-09-28 00:08

this took me hours

P#135373 2023-10-03 20:22

What a clever game!, it really gave me a nice surprise, the mechanics are really good, it's a shame that the game it's short, I hope see in the future a complete version or maybe more level, keep doing great games like this.

P#135817 2023-10-12 23:59

Broke The Game ._.

P#136382 2023-10-25 17:47

Very fun and original game! It would be nice to add more puzzles that are more challenging, but overall, excellent game.

P#136807 2023-11-02 17:34

GG on mobile!!!
