Here's my entry for the Pico-8 advent calendar 2019:
- Stay alive in the arctic while climate change destroys your habitat!
- Eat fish to keep your hunger down or you will starve!
- Stay away from trash and don't fall into the water.
⬆️ ⬇️ ⬅️ ➡️ - jump between floes
That's all there is to it really!
Every now and then disaster strikes which will make it harder to stay alive.
Do your best and good luck!
Ah ! I survived 52-seconds.
What's the secret to a high-score ? Don't worry so much about the fish as your footing. Always see a clear path to where you are standing and will stand seconds from now.
Sacrifice eating an oil popsicile if it will save your footing.
Nice game ! Definitely requires the brain. Star for you, @johanp.
I love Polar Panic and would like to put a windows exe version on my arcade cabinet. If I register/buy Pico-8, would I be able to create an "exe" myself? If not, can you please please help. I think Polar Panic will look great on my Arcade Cabinet.
Thanking you, Hitesh
hello Johan again
A massive thank you from me. Polar Panic (& Pico-8) has been a godsend to me as I recover from a major operation.
I have been look at your code and learning so so much but most of it is beyond me as it is all so clever.
Quick question : Is there one line of code I can put in so that the score increases by "1" every time you eat a fish? Make it more arcade like.
Thanks once again...
