Cart #winter_golf_2darray-1 | 2018-12-03 | Code ▽ | Embed ▽ | License: CC4-BY-NC-SA

This is my entry in the Pico-8 Advent Calendar for 2018, a jam organized by Bigaston.

Winter Golf is a short golf game for snowy-minded individuals. Each time you collect a snowflake, your snowball gets larger and larger. Grab all the snowflakes in a course to unlock the goal! There are five courses total.

Press left and right to aim, hold and release O (or, on a keyboard, Z) to take a shot, or hold X to restart the current course.

There's a special surprise at the end...but you'll have to figure out how to get to it!

(little note: this thread originally contained a placeholder cartridge, so there are some comments about that original cart - for context, it was a drawing of an orange.)

Juicy ! 🍊

Now imagine if ZEP had an OVAL() and FILLOVAL() routine. You could probably do a rotating banana then.

Coincidentally, I've got that one sitting around, too!

I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts bananas !

Welp, I still would like to have an in-board OVAL routine.

Alright, you have oranges and bananas. Let's step it up. How about apples ?

Okay, this was amazing. The physics felt so tight. Fantastic work. :D What a fun game! :D

Well this is amazing. I think I lost my ball on level 2. Shot out of the stratosphere and never came down.

P#59599 2018-12-03 04:32

You can hold X to restart if the ball falls out of bounds - sorry that there's no prompt for it!

I've been having my browser freeze in Chrome and Firefox on some of the more intensive carts, this being one of them. It's happening both on my Mac and my PC so I don't think it's a problem specific to my computer.

Anyone else have this happen, know if it's an open bug, and if there's a fix? Hard to get any error messages or debug information because the dev console in the browser won't update when it happens.

Edit: Tried the itch.io version and I played through it fine there, so it's something specific to the bbs I think.

@gate88 - Ouch! I've seen that happen once in the BBS version so far, but I don't know what causes it (I'm suspicious that it happened during a collision step). I'll try to investigate...

P#59622 2018-12-03 19:49

The physics are amazing and the music on the cart is sooo good!

P#59623 2018-12-03 19:50

@2darray - I'm not sure the freeze is specific to your game; I had the 1st day advent calendar game do it too.

P#59624 2018-12-03 19:51 ( Edited 2018-12-03 19:55)

I found it was crashing a lot after I reset the level a bunch of times. Like, hard crashing the browser tab entirely. I eventually just loaded it up in Splore in PICO-8 proper and it did just fine. I wasn't going to be deterred by a thing like a browser crash... gotta get that Hole-in-One on every level! :D

P#59626 2018-12-03 20:00 ( Edited 2018-12-03 20:00)

@gate88 I'm also seeing this with a few carts here and there. I posted a bug report here - https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=32423

P#59638 2018-12-04 02:01

Absolutely fantastic!!

  1. Beautifully done and fun to play. More holes please :)
  2. Love the reset timer when pressing "x".
  3. No freezes in downloaded cart.
  4. Found the surprise. Love it.
P#59643 2018-12-04 02:34 ( Edited 2018-12-04 02:37)

SO cool. I played it from Splore because of browser-freezing, but that was ultimately better, as it meant I could gif my prize.

P#59650 2018-12-04 04:43

The freeze in the 0.1.12 player is provisionally fixed -- I recompiled the player with -O1 instead of -O2. It seems to be a combination of a newer version of emscripten, the 0.1.12 source, and the -O2 switch that produce the offending fragment of code.

Anyway, fantastic game! I love extra dimension of figuring out hole-in-ones.

P#59676 2018-12-04 18:14 ( Edited 2018-12-04 18:32)

@zep - Awesome!! Thank you very much for digging into that so quickly.

P#59679 2018-12-04 19:05

Love this game! I'd like to make something with a similar concept but implementing the collisions and physics is a little beyond my abilities so I was hoping to learn from your cart. The source code has an edit mode, how could I enable it? I would like to see how you built the maps!

P#68533 2019-10-05 18:26

How do I get the snowglobe ?

Also on 2nd ball, launched the ball past the top of the screen and it never came back down. :(

P#68534 2019-10-05 18:50 ( Edited 2019-10-05 18:51)

@dw817 You have to get a hole in one on every map!

P#68536 2019-10-05 18:54

Takes all that to get the Snow Globe ? I'll try.

And yes, the game shouldn't just lock up because of a bad swing. :)

P#68537 2019-10-05 18:57 ( Edited 2019-10-05 19:00)

Amazing, beautiful and funny game! I love it! <3

P#77164 2020-05-25 07:44

All holes in one! Nice game.

P#88630 2021-03-06 23:27
