How come the Voxatron cartridges are laggier then plain old PICO-8 cartridges and when you move its slow af. Whenever I look at the GIF's of Voxatron, they look perfectly fine, but when I play a Voxatron cartridge, It's slow. Like my internet is perfectly fine, yet Voxatron STILL LAGS. Please let me know if you know why and how to fix it if you know either of those. Or at least how to stop the lag. Thank you. :)
Voxatron is a 3D fantasy console, which needs much more resources to run than a PICO-8 cart. It has to render the voxel environment and shaders, when PICO simply draws a 2D texture of a game's framebuffer. The performance differences can easily be noticed on a web browser.
I have one solution: Spend $20 on the desktop app. This would usually be cheaper than buying a better CPU for having better performance in the browser. Desktop builds would always have performance benefits!
