I didn't have much time this week, but really wanted to do something for the first pico8 jam.

Comments welcome :)

Pretty cute. :3 After I figured out what I was doing, I got a score of 3230!

Thanks for the nice comment.
My high score is 3120. Well done!

This gave me idea for a less poetic cartridge. I will reuse the scrolling part for a shoot-them-up like Defender.

Adding raindrop ground impact fx and feedback on watered seeds ( = plants ) woud make it awessome. I'm also unsure about the up and down use ? Do you score more when you water from higher place ?

There is never enough time, never enough resources, to complete the arduous task at hand, and you skillfully portray this eternal struggle. The lakes are small, are sparse, and to collect their vital contents you must descend to the level of the most common man, the lowest denominator, in order that you may climb high again and nourish the masses with your wisdom but society never changes no matter how dedicated you are to your task.

@pineapple you impress me. You wrote a comment for all the games in the jam. They are so philosophical... You deserve at less a hand shake or a big hug. Make your choice ;-)

high score: 3560

This is surprisingly entertaining when one has a goal to achieve (such as beating JTE's score). I suppose it shows how competition can make almost any game more entertaining.

Physical contact makes me uncomfortable

@Connorses: You may have done the high score if not you're really near. If you take care you will discover that the game doesn't begin at the same place each time... So you have to choose the good place to start. You earn more points when the seeds are in columns.

@pineapple: sorry to hear that :-(

My personal target is 4000!


Done! I can go back to work now...

P#17363 2015-12-01 14:28 ( Edited 2015-12-01 19:35)

4190 ?!
How could this be done???
1.21 gigawatts

Did 3460 :/ Well at least I beat JTE too...
Nice mechanic idea! It really is entertaining once you're in it. And music is pretty nice too and so are the sfx!

I'm very happy to see that you like it :)

@benjamin Soulé
Very good ideas. I will improve the cartridge after the result of the jam.

I enjoyed refilling myself with water. I wished for plant sprouts to show that I was a Good Cloud.

Really nice little game! Its sort of challenging and well made. I included it in my Pico-8 Jam #1 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHEiGl10Aw8
