I wrote Brick Breaker as a full-featured, polished PICO-8 sample program. It was an opportunity for me to learn the PICO-8 Lua variant and now stands as a good example program for other programmers new to PICO-8.

It demonstrates (commented) use of:

  • loops
  • create & destroy objects
  • local vars
  • text
  • multiple levels
  • sprite animation
  • powerups
  • particles
  • map usage
  • title screen & game over
  • sound effects
  • music
  • sprite packing
  • basic physics
  • assertions

as well as some techniques for reducing token count, a limited resource on PICO-8.

I did most of this work in parallel with the 2017 Global Game Jam. The PICO-8 version of Brick Breaker is based on my JavaScript Brick Breaker sample program, which you can play here.
