Of course it's not my original design! Kikstart is a classic game from 1986, written by Shaun Southern for the Commodore 16 and the Plus/4. I have re-created it as a PICO-8 game to pay my respects.

How to play

  • Left and right: decelerate and accelerate
  • X: jump / start game
  • O: ???

Design and differences

The levels are identical to the original ones. I have scaled down the sprites to get a larger game area. Max speed is slightly faster, the game runs smoother this way. I tried my best with the sounds (the music can be muted in the cart menu). I added a new game mode because I had plenty of space, but the original game is so much better.

Have fun:)

Not familiar with the original, but this is great! Frustrating at times but very addictive

True, you need a bit of luck with the clouds and the stars. Also there are some nasty jumps.
Thank you for trying it out:)
