Pico Driller

Welcome to Picotown, a city like any other until big blocks started to pop out of the earth right into the middle of the city! The picopeople need you: Pico Driller!

Falling blocks that could squish you anytime? Small capsules of air underground? Ever-present danger? Prepare to drill your way and save the day!

CONTROLS

  • Arrow keys to move and navigate menus.
  • X/Z to drill in current direction.

HOW TO PLAY

  • Drill as deep as you can, but don't get crushed!
  • Air consumption increases the deeper you go, make sure to refill in time!
  • X-blocks take 5 drills to destroy AND 20% of your air. Beware!

Hey all, super happy that this is so well received! Johan and I had such a blast making it and nothing is better than other people enjoying it too. Thanks for letting us know!

So much polish

What does "FUTURE VERSION: 239" mean? It's stopping it working.

This is such a lovely production. A+ am drilling a bit every day.

Bug report: after 18 minutes (32767/(30*60)), tick overflows to -0x8000, and the game starts running slow because of

local steps=max(0,15-flr(tick/1.5))
pal_shift(steps, dark_pal)

Possible fix: resetting ticks each game.
I guess there might be a bunch of carts now that do something funky after 18 (or 9) minutes!

@BlinkyMcGoo it means the cart was made in a newer version of PICO-8 that is incompatible with the version you have. You can fix it by updating.

Thanks again!

@zep - I have a feeling all my games suffer from this. :)

Great game here, really close to the original. I love the cute graphics and the music. I've made a video review to show my appreciation:

Ah that explains why the game becomes slow!

BTW I have now played the GBC version (cleared 500m after a week thanks to training in the pico8 version!) and I am impressed by the fidelity of your game. One exception is that your music is better!

Oh hey, this is some pretty cool air.
