A little number game.

You have to fill the whole square with numbers (1-100)

  • Horizontally / vertically : leave 2 cells in between
  • Diagonally : leave 1 cell in between

Once again a demo and/or Pico-8 animation recording will be of assistance to show players how to get past level one.

Oh, nice proof of the concept, you should dig it - actually this is pretty hard, I numbered my way until 83. Otherwise, this is pretty good

Okay, I see now. Made it up to 77. Hmm ... @troske007, is this an original idea of yours ?

Nice concept, @troske007. An original?

Doing a little research. Yep I do that sort of thing when I can't get an easy answer. Found THIS:


While a solution is listed here, I don't want to see it. Want to see if I can solve it by myself.

So, yep, I don't think it's a 100% original idea. But it certainly is an original puzzle for Pico-8 and I think that's where it counts the most.

You get my STAR, @troske007, and well done !

Thanks @dw817 @alexr @FrelonK

No it's not an original idea. It was a little game we played in class with pen and paper 25 years ago. Now it's a little bit easier with "undo move" :-)

I made v1.1, where it can be solved automatically but then there's less fun :-)

I'm really enjoying this. It reminds me of the Knight's Tour problem from classes years ago. That puzzle is similar, played with an 8x8 chessboard and a single knight.

I made a small change locally to draw a spot to show valid moves: https://imgur.com/a/YM4EtzE
I understand the problem but I feel it makes it a little easier to see at a glance.

Nice game. I used the strat of sweeping the grid row by row, column by column while mashing Z and ended up at 58.
