This is the first project I completed in pico-8: Connect four +
It is just like connect four but with a twist.
When someone puts four of their pieces in a row the game doesn't just end. Instead, the pieces disappear and everything above falls down sometimes making new four in a row's. For every four in a row, four random pieces of the other person will disappear.
You can play against a friend or against AI. (or let AI play against itself :-P)
- Use the arrow keys to select the slot in which you want to drop your piece.
- X to drop the piece.
ps. I have never beaten the AI myself.
pps. I also have an itch.io page.
I managed to beat the A.I. 10-5 :)
It only took a few tries ;P
I find the random aspect interesting -- Initially thought I wouldn't like that, then tried it and found that I did!
But, I still can't help wonder how the game would play if it was deterministic...
