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! :)
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
