Hello everybody,
We are two students in game design, I'm Zoé and with my friend Justine we made this game.
This is our first game on PICO-8.
This project is a school project. The theme was to imagine and create a little game within two weeks.
So we decided to made a kind of a maze with time travels.
Play it and enjoy (maybe).

Very nice little puzzle game, and a cool concept! Do you plan to add more levels?

P#33527 2016-12-15 10:58 ( Edited 2016-12-15 15:58)

Wow, nice concept ! it's really fun, but a little hard to "aim" when turning.

Thank you !
Yes, we want to make maybe ennemies and others puzzles with differents buttons.

It's our first project on PICO-8 and I didn't have learn programming before. You can press two buttons at the same time, it's easier.

Neat idea! I like how you did the collision detection (checking the color).

To make it easier to build new levels, you may want to try using the built-in map/tile layer...

Or, you can just set up a matrix with tile IDs and read from that to draw the level. Here's a quick example of that:

You can also use that same matrix to check for collision (based on the tile ID.)

First, thanks for the review !
And thanks for the advice, we didn't know how to use the built-in map/tile layer, this is the reason why we haven't made the level with it.
We will check your exemple and probably make other level with that tool. thanks again !

Thanks, we have made a mistake.
I updated the link.

P#35523 2017-01-12 06:01 ( Edited 2017-01-12 11:01)

it might be better to update the first post in this thread rather than cross-link a new one (that's how we do usually).

anyway nice puzzle game, I'm enjoying it!
bonne journée !

Wow! This is BRILLIANT! :D
Excellent game mechanics. Love the "ghost playback" effect (reminds me of failed attempts in Super Meat Boy.
Very addictive. Had to stop playing or else I'd get nothing done today.
Very well done! ;)

ultrabrite : Thanks for your nice comment ! Sorry for the cross-link, we didn't know how to update the code of the first one, this is why we have made another post !

Liquidream : Thank you very much ! It's really kind !

P#35537 2017-01-12 10:20 ( Edited 2017-01-12 15:20)

Very nice, great idea!!

P#35551 2017-01-12 16:15 ( Edited 2017-01-12 21:15)

justine & zoe: not a big deal, it's just to make sure people actually play the latest version in the right thread and all that. you can "save @clip" in pico8, then edit the first post of your thread, paste at the beginning. add a little "update: made this, done that", hit "preview", enter the name of the cart at the bottom, "submit" and voilà! (just do that in the other thread if you have further updates)

hope to hear & see from you in the future, merde for your cursus & exams ;) keep up the good work!

J'espère que vous avez eu une bonne note. c'est quand même d'un bon niveau, surtout pour ce site ! :)

P#35555 2017-01-12 17:48 ( Edited 2017-01-12 22:52)

windigo : Thanks for your nice comment :)

ultrabrite :
Thanks for the explanation ! We will do that next time :)

Aucune idée, on ne sait pas encore. Mais on aura pas une bonne note, notre prof est trop méchant pour ça :D

P#35597 2017-01-13 08:47 ( Edited 2017-01-13 13:47)

pfff tous les mêmes ;)
