CrazyBus for the PICO-8!

This is an extremely faithful port/clone of CrazyBus for the PICO-8!
All the info you need is below!

Binary builds and extra stuffs here:



    PicoBus (v3 Memeohime)
    Author: SuperPositiveP

    PicoBus is built with:
        PICO-8 https://www.lexaloffle.com/pico-8.php
        colecobug's box-art template https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=3489


Okay, so let's keep this as a simple README.txt-esue thing.

There are exacty 10 playable buses in the game.

These include buses from the original CrazyBus and are:

        the irizar century 3.95,
        the busscar vissta buss,
        the generic school-bus,
        the busscar jum buss 360,
        the encava e-nt6000,
        the marcopolo paradiso gv1150,
        the pico-8 logo,
        totally not a hotweels m&m-themed bus I found on google for a joke,
        hero wentward dt40l from BeamNG,
        sleipnir glacier bus from iceland

This game has the iconic music from the original CrazyBus, and it is 99% accurate to CrazyBus 2.0!

Finally, there is a small corruptor mode I included from a snippet.
Access it by holding UP and LEFT on whatever control method you use while the PICO-8 splash is on screen.
It really only corrupts the titlescreen and all the sounds and sprites, it doesn't actively corrupt the game lol.

That's about it, have fun toying around with my little COVID-19 stir-craziness project that I for some reason
decided to update 2 years later to remove dumb stuff and add polish.

oh dear, you even got the titlescreen music

Yeah, I got everything I could. I think I did a pretty good job.

Music and title screen were the first things done, actually.

Sorry but your version is a WHOLE lot better than the original, @SuperPositiveP. Your bus's wheels actually MOVE. That gives you a gold star right there. :)

@dw817 The original has moving wheels, too, but thanks for the compliment on my silly project! It means a lot.

Hi @SuperPositiveP. I'm thinking of the first time I saw this on the 8-bit Nintendo, "Crazy Bus (Unl) 97k." Checking, yeah, you're right. They do rotate.

Well, sort of. Two animation frames for the wheels, hard to see really. You have to wonder about the original authors of this bizarre cart and why it was made to begin with.

Capital work on perfect duplication of the horrendous music ! :D

@dw817 the original was made to test out a BASIC interpreter/compiler for the Sega Genesis lol. I'm an expert on the CrazyBus lore after making this. If you dig hard enough the source code for the original is publicly available somewhere.

Thanks, I try :)
