PICO-8 games are getting so hard these days...
This is a port of a Flash game from Kian Bashiri called "You Have To Burn The Rope". It's a really hard game. You have to burn the rope there.
Here's a pretty apt description of the game, according to its original programmer:
You Have To Burn The Rope is, by formal definitions, a game since it has all the things that make up a game - besides losing condition which I regret not adding - but I wouldn't call it a game since it is hardly interactive in any meaningful way. The point was to make fun of other games that limit the player's interaction by being easy, linear, or heavily controlled and jokingly ask at which point these games also cease to be games.
If at any point you are stuck, I suggest that you check out the enclosed instruction book.
- v1.0.1 (June 12, 2020)
Added timer (activated by pressing Z/C/N at the title screen)
- v1.0 (June 11, 2020)
I showed this game to my niece and she says: "WOWI that was FUN, I LIKE the ending with MUSSSICCC. Sing with me "now im a hero and what do i do with the rest of my da-ay?" HAHAHGAGZA that was fun to listen too and i played again just to hear the MUSSICCCC! thank you ._."
I believe I have the fastest time, a 21.63, according to the in-game timer (press z at the start instead of x). However, a lot of people are using livesplit, so it's possible they could have a faster time and split at different points or split late. I will edit this as I continue to improve. The flash world record is a 21.600 (using the timing method of this game) so I think pico-8 is faster than flash version.
