I had the idea to combine the ideas, so I present the PICO Junior (Jr. for short) Challenge.
- 4 colors in total (transparency doesn't count)
- Must be 64x64
- One Player
Everything else? Fair Game.
To make sure that the games are easy to find, I've got 2 ideas:
- Put them all in this post.
- Tag them with "picojr".
I've got an example cartridge, lemme know which method would be easier.
"Take the fun of Jelpi on the go!"
-Z/Up to jump
-X to dash
-Left and right to move the character.
Here's the example cartridge, how is it?
Version 3: Snow Level, with a little secret ;)
Version 2: added a level, and traps too!
As much as I am happy that PICO JR is part of the inspiration here and am 100% okay with people cannibalizing whatever bits of the cart or my thinking they like there, I've got zero sense of ownership over the core idea itself so I figure people should do whatever feels natural.
People making wacky handheld downgrade games: good outcome whatever form it takes.
@joshmillard Thanks! It's good to know this is fine with you.
To beginners: Though I am a beginner myself, if you find the graphic capabilities of PICO-8 too limiting, DO NOT TRY THIS.
I hope that others will do this challenge, though.
I updated Jelpi Junior with an Underground level...because every platformer needs one.
Also, Lava and Spikes(They were originally in the Jelpi ROM!), due to the game feeling a bit easy. Because of these, I also made warning signs (Like in the Game Gear version of Sonic).
How about extra lives? Good, because every 10 points you get, you'll get a life.
