Penguin Pete's Loop N Scoop

This is my first pico8 game and is still a work in progress for Game Off 2019! Feedback is appreciated. :)

Help Penguin Pete run his ice cream truck as you avoid deadly predators!

Collect ONLY flavors needed for your next order, or it's game over.


Get combos and spawn wildcards by completing orders in one move.
Wildcards count for any flavor and will fill the FIRST incomplete scoop in your order.
Consecutive combos will increase points received for the next order.


Get powerups for every 5 orders completed.

  • SHIELD protects you temporarily when you collide with an enemy.
  • SLOW TIME makes enemies and ice cream scoops move 75% slower. (Your speed remains the same.)


v0.4.1, v0.4.2 - gameplay tweaks
v0.4.0 - add combo bonuses
v0.3.4 - improvement: add timer for slow time powerup
v0.3.3 - bugfix: don't die when picking up scoop if there's no current order
v0.3.2 - bugfix: count order before death
v0.3.1 - bugfix: spawn wildcard after player turn
v0.3.0 - add powerups (shield, slow time)
v0.2.0 - add wildcard flavor
v0.1.1 - bugfix: runtime error when scoop is in player path right after completing an order
v0.1.0 - initial wip submission

Good. Nice to have onboard instructions. You get my STAR for that. Suggest more than one life to game.

I think it's a nice, simple game with a requirement for awareness, and I agree with dw about the lives.
