Void Seeker

You wish to become one with the void, but you're running out of time—you need to fall through the gaps on each floor and make it to the void before it closes. The deeper you go the sooner the void closes and the path becomes more challenging, but fortunately you'll have some power ups along the way. The goal of the game is to get to the deepest level as the void has no end.

Controls

⬅️➡️ - Movement
❎ - Jump/Start/retry

Features

  • The void is rife with randomness—no two levels are the same!
  • Spiffy sound effects, they'll never get old
  • High score tracking, your PB is displayed on the start screen

Gaps

  • Normal (grey) — Fall at regular speed
  • Fast (green) — Fall fast then move
  • Slow (purple) — Fall slow then move slow, less so if you jump in

When falling from one gap if you go through another that will speed your fall and give you a speed boost on landing!

Items

  • Key — Get all the keys on the floor to unlock the gaps
  • Time extend — The void lingers a little longer

Power ups

As you wish to travel light you can only hold one power–up a time, but fortunately they aren't uncommon in your journey.

  • Warp — Walls lose all meaning
  • Grav Belt — More jumps and improved slow descents
  • Speed shoes — Move faster, stop slower

Obstacles

  • Launcher — Gives you boost … back up a floor
  • Bouncer — Gives you a little push

Thanks to Lexaloffle for making PICO-8, it was a real pleasure to work with.

This is clever! I really enjoyed it. The jumps are a bit tough when the gaps are close together, but I liked it.

Thanks, debo, glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the feedback! I've just updated the cartridge with latest version which has a lot of changes, not the least of which is improved jumps :)
