Today is Game Boy's 30th anniversary in Europe. To celebrate, I ported the first ever game I made, QPong to PICO-8 on GameShell which looks very similar to a Game Boy. This is the closest to making a GB game without doing it the hard way using C or Assembly!

QPong is a quantum version of the classic Pong. In this game, you need to construct a quantum circuit to control the paddle position. Spooky quantum phenomena like superposition and wave function collapse show up in the game if you place H gates on the circuit.


  • W, A, S, D: move cursor

  • Z: Place/remove Hadamard gate

  • X: Place/remove X gate


Please read my blog post for details about the game and everything about quantum computers!

If you are interested in make quantum games like QPong, please join us in the upcoming IndiQ Quantum Game Jam (Oct 3–6 2020) , held in conjunction with one of the largest online game jam LDJAM47.
