My first Pico-8 game submission is a matching game inspired by ToA, PAD, 10000000, ymbab etc. I really love Pico-8 and hope to make a lot more games in the future. Let me know how you like it and if you run into any issues :)
I like the mechanic and the style but after playing for a while still kind of confused about some things. Some sort of instruction screen might help.
I get that fire is a blocker but not sure why/how fire appears. Also the mushroom is my health(?) and it goes down by itself over time? Sometimes it seemed no matter what I did my health went down, which seems weird.
I also got stuck several times where fire blocked my cursor but there was nothing to match so I just had to wait to die...which is a very slow process.
I do love how you have to match different things based on what you're fighting at the time...I can see the fun here but finding it difficult to find how it all clicks.
Thank you for the awesome feedback. I tried to work some in the latest version.
I dialed back the fire a bit now a bit as fire appears at a slower rate. Some mechanics might still be too opaque, though. I'm still trying to make them clearer.
