Hello everybody,

after years of playing all your amazing Carts, and failing to build something more complex i proudly present you:

"pico Skate IV"

I built this in my free time over the course of two weeks, to get my self away from 3D art and back into programming. I had a lot of fun animating the board sprites by hand and having such huge sprites and tile sets. This also required me to use all of the available sprite and map space with only small unused spaces.

What to expect

In this quick retro game you can control your skateboard along four different levels, each with it's own look and play style. Tricks can be done by jumping on rails or pressing the arrow keys in the air. When you mastered these try to combine you tricks in to a combo by pressing the down button to manual.

Thank you all for your feedback and appreciation! I am currently wondering if I am ready to build an endless mode with a procedural level, but I might give it another night of sleep first :) Thank you for playing :)

Oh thank you for the compliment, that’s lovely to hear. I just recently dug it out again myself. May I ask how you came across it and did you unlock all levels?
