My first cartridge submission, Yay!
Boing! is an Amiga themed YASCL (Yet Another Sqaushy CLone) cart. I installed pico-8 and got started by following along with the Squashy article from Pico-8 Zine #1. After I finished the article, I wanted more, so I began playing around. Eventually, I created an Amiga theme by adding sprites, a map instead of a solid background, a Boing intro screen, and a guru meditation crash when the game ends. It may not be immediately obvious, but the player's final score is displayed as the first half of the guru meditation error code.
It still needs music and perhaps a cracktro ;)
Haha, you'll have to excuse my crappy pixel skills,.. that is supposed to be an Amiga 600.
I don't know how I missed it before, but I found this pixel perfect Boing demo previously uploaded. Its way better than my version, but I wasn't seriously trying to recreate the demo. Bravo to Ultrabrite though for pulling it off!
