Zelda + Wario-Ware + Golf = Legend of Hippo

This is one of my most ambitious PICO-8 game yet!

You control a small hippo that have an ability to transform into a ball with three different forms.
To win a level you have to follow the rules, they are always visible in top center of the screen.
Much like Wario-Ware the time is always ticking so you have to be quick!


Move: Arrow keys
Dash: Hold Z and release, the longer you hold the faster the speed
Switch form: X

Update 1.1

This patch mostly focusing on making it more easy to prepare for a level. This should make remix less frustrating. Also some small polish on levels and graphics.

  • Shows instructions for longer time to prepare for the current level
  • Can change ability during instruction splash
  • You and enemies are visible during switching of levels
  • Remember what level you are on when you go back to menu
  • Added animated flames
  • Some levels are easier
  • Some more polish on details on some levels


1: Push

Pushes enemies away, if an enemy is hit and collides with a wall with enough speed, it dies.

2: Jump

You are invincible and go through most of the objects. Cannot kill though.

3: Bomb

You transform into a bomb, after some time it explodes, destroying enemies and most objects.

Good luck and have fun!

Hey @Elastiskalinjen. I went onto ArcadePreHacks and I saw that your game has been uploaded with out your permission. Much love, Rimuru.

Hi @Rimuru! Thanks for clarifying, is there something I can do to remove it from there?

P#71124 2019-12-17 20:29

yes. You can contact them and ask them to remove the game from their wbesite. You may be able to do that by going into their fourms and posting one about your game. You may have to create an acount but I could make my onw and make a fourm about the games that are on there without the creators permission.

@Rimuru thanks, will look into that!

Actually, I just made an account but do not know how to make a forum. Sorry about that, but if I do figure it out, I will reply.
