Parking Masters is a game I made over a weekend for a friend's birthday. Said friend is fond of driving and once took a photo of his car parked very close to another which has become a running gag (many ridiculous photoshops).

I have turned the photo into a little arcade game/"very serious" simulation of parking in a manual car. I thought it would be a fun thing to do, turn a photo into some sprites for a PICO-8 game. Pleased with the results - photo-realistic action!

Controls

Up - gas pedal
Left and right - shift gear
X - Clutch
C - Brake

Park as quickly as you can, as close as you can! Try and avoid stalling and also from shunting the other car!

That's fun. Wouldn't it make more sense for down to be brake though?

Gotta be able to tip-knuckle, er, I mean heel-toe in a manual. ;)

Thank you both!

@Felice - I've updated it so that down is also brake. My brain is now fairly hardwired to use C/Z as brake, but it's an option now - it's like extra-hard-mode though! :D

Confession--no clue how to drive manual. Tried this earlier, didn't do so well. But then, just now, I stopped with no pixel gap and got a AA rank, haha! I have a screenshot but the BBS doesn't seem to want to accept the upload (I swear!).

Great looking/playing game, and hilarious concept!

@joseph3000, just AA? Try hitting an AAA (even if only out of pure luck). B-)

@joseph3000 - thanks! Also, this is very loosely based on a manual car, demaking one to a 6 button setup was a fun challenge.

@bekey - perfection, my friend Joe (who took the photo) would be proud! :D
