It's the Pico-8 Advent Calendar for 2019!

This is the main menu for a collaboration organized by a secret cabal of pico-8 merry makers.

Come back on each day from the 1st to the 25th of December for twenty-five different surprises, each made by a different developer! This menu cartridge will link to all of the games as they are released, though the individual cartridges will also have their own threads.

Day 1: UFO SANTA CANDY BLASTER

After an incident at Confection Production Facility 97, thousands of peppermints were launched into low earth orbit. Santa's UFO is tough enough to ram these without taking any damage, and a few solid hits with a gift will shatter these mints into dust. Better get cracking if you're going to deliver those gifts on time!

Smash candies, get coins, buy upgrades, and smash more! Buy out all the upgrades to complete a run... and for the ultimate challenge see if you can complete a run without allowing any candies to escape.

Head on over to the main thread for controls and more info: https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=36074

This is such a nice little treat that I've enjoyed every year since discovering Pico-8 with my PocketChip.

DAY 4:

Remember the classic Shockwave Flash snowball fight game called Snowcraft from 1998? 21 years ago! My entry for this year's PICO-8 Advent Calendar is a demake of that beloved Flash game. Huge thanks to @Gruber for helping with the sound effects!

This game uses the mouse. (Sorry, mobile users!)

I tried to make this as close to the original as possible. Have fun! :)

For snowfight, is it just infinite bonus rounds or is there an ending?

P#70568 2019-12-04 14:16

@Celeste_Pro Infinite bonus rounds... just like the original. 😁

For Saint Nicholas Day, I made a game inspired by my favorite St Nick legend: that one time he punched a heretic. It's a 2-player fighting game, controllers recommended. Enjoy!

@enargy, you might have an option to RESET so can open the squares again and see the cool animations you've done.

And just HOW do you plan to stuff 25 doors on this screen ? :D

It's Christmas Day, and you're the only one working the snowplow today. Can you clear out all the snow?

Controls

ARROW KEYS to move your snowplow.
Z/C/N to select things in menus.
X/V/M to go back.
Hold X/V/M on the title screen to erase your progress (don't worry, you probably won't do it by accident!).

There are 100 levels to complete. Can you clear them all before seasonal depression kicks in?
