Pico Arcade is a game launcher that launches 36 arcade-style games from great cartmakers!

Use left and right arrows to go through the carts.

Press X to launch the cart!

You can get back to the Arcade from the Pause Menu.

Have fun!

P.S. If you have other favorite high-quality, arcade-style Pico-8 games, let me know! I can publish another showcase in the future.

Great idea, @thattomhall
I love how you made special icons for each game - really ties it all in nicely.
I can see this being a popular idea! 😁

P#72472 2020-01-30 19:58

put hungry harry 3D, cosmo boing deluxe and omega zone

P#72474 2020-01-30 20:09

Thanks for the first two -- Omega Zone is in there!

P#72475 2020-01-30 20:15

really great idea!
thanks for including shpm2k :)

those great classic remakes came to my mind:
Invader Overload
Mystic Realm Dizzy
Sewers of d'Oh! <- shameless plug there, sorry ;)

Mistigri is probably my favorite arcade cart on the site.
I'd be flattered if Heat Death made the cut, although I do concede it feels more like a console port of an arcade game.
Maybe Combo Pool!

P#72531 2020-01-31 21:21 ( Edited 2020-02-01 21:07)

Thanks, @ultrabrite and @gate88 , I’ll check these out!

P#72535 2020-01-31 21:37

Launcher updated with those, plus Frogger, for 30 ARCADE GAMES! WOOOO!

P#72628 2020-02-02 21:29

Oh no it's dizzy

P#72638 2020-02-02 23:49

One that would be awesome will be if the border was there during gameplay

P#72639 2020-02-02 23:50

Actually Minsoft makes really fun arcade feeling games, should check them out

P#72640 2020-02-02 23:52

If only Virtua racing by freds72 was in cartridge format...

P#72641 2020-02-02 23:54

Minsoft has a game in the launcher

P#72643 2020-02-03 00:57

Here's Worm Nom Nom.

P#72653 2020-02-03 07:51

One thing that would be awesome will be if the border was there during gameplay and that it would reproduce your inputs

P#72658 2020-02-03 15:15

That would be cool, but since the carts weren’t made for this launcher, impossible. I made all the parts so your inputs while selecting would work but the “test anim” felt more active so I just used it. :)

P#72661 2020-02-03 15:58

Thanks for suggesting one of mine Dogerizer, and thanks thattomhall for including Cosmo Boing Deluxe.

I did a remake(ish) of the arcade game Tunnel Hunt as well:


Also, not by me but this is a nice Missile Command style game:


P#72666 2020-02-03 19:20

Nice! If I make another, will add!

P#72672 2020-02-03 20:21

No thank you for making amazing games, Minsoft. What's next?

P#72704 2020-02-04 00:03 ( Edited 2020-02-04 00:07)

Actually @thattomhall would it be possible to make another one after where you actually travel around an arcade, but would instead feature Pico-8 classics that would not necessarily be arcade style

P#72705 2020-02-04 00:08 ( Edited 2020-02-04 01:15)

Loose gravel would be cool in the collection

P#72707 2020-02-04 01:14

Thanks for the compliment! I did start a new game a while back...another one based on an arcade classic. I haven't worked on it for a while so need to get back to it!

P#72885 2020-02-07 19:24

Updated with SIX MORE ARCADE GAMES! Thanks for the suggestions folks!

Really didn't expect Tetyis to make the cut, awesome! Really fantastic collection, too!

P#73106 2020-02-14 22:05

Thanks much! Hopefully it helps people find these games easier!

P#73109 2020-02-14 22:18

put in lets karate

P#73474 2020-02-26 14:52

This is awesome :)
Feel free to use my Asteroids clone if you think it fits.

I'm famous

P#73868 2020-03-13 03:43

That's cool! How did you load the carts in the cart?
here is my attempt here.

P#74978 2020-04-19 15:33

Oh, and if you want you can put CandyColt Classic on it!

P#74979 2020-04-19 15:35

@CandyColt_Games Thanks! I used the LOAD command, with “Back to Arcade” parameter after cart name.
