Hi all!

This is my first finished PICO-8 cart.

Its an arcade game where you high five and fist bump cats.

High five the cats with your hand moving at speed for more points. Build up a combo to get a chance to pull off a secret handshake.


Arrow keys - move hand
X - Switch arm position
C - Switch between open hand and fist

This is version 1.1 - I tweaked the hit detection for high fives and added a tutorial skill level.

Hope you enjoy it! :)

This is brilliant. But I gave one of them five too hard I think and the screen turned red? Please send him my apologies sometimes I just play PICO-8 so rough. ha ha ha can't wait to let the kids loose with this one. Thanks

Thanks all, for checking my game out!

@radcore - yeah the fist bumps and low fives are hard - have to sort of unfocus yourself to make the switches! :)

@timeline - the red screen is something I added last minute to try and differentiate 'combos' or 'secret handshakes'. Basically you can hammer the x and c buttons to increase your score. It's not super well developed, but I was enjoying changing the palette to something striking and adding some slow-mo!

Reviews from my kids

"I like the fist bumps and the high five. I really like the cats. They are so funny. I would copy this and make a dog high five challenge. An amateur dog five challenge!" -- the 7yo

"Pretty fun and hard!" -- the 10yo

Great feedback! :)

I think a dog version would be a popular addition too
