Pico Off Road is a racing game inspired by the classic Ironman Super Off Road. There are 5 car colors to choose from (equal by parameters), three tracks that can be played in both directions. Player can choose from two modes - single race or tournament. There is one "hidden" mode: single race with 0 opponents can be considered as a practice.

Menu controls

  • Z = confirm
  • X = back

Driving controls

  • arrows = turning, throttle, reverse
  • Z = nitro
  • X = throttle (for controllers if you can't press left/right + forward at the same time)


Pico Off Road uses combination of 2D sprites, 3D height map and real-time rendered meshes (cars).

New to it but I had no idea Pico 8 could go this far! Daunting and inspiring!

Pico 8 is surprisingly powerful machine. Even Pico Off Road could be much better, there are unoptimized parts of code, map and picture compression could be better, etc. So I could add more graphics, maybe whole new track? I'm just not willing to spend another month doing that :-)

Amazing graphics! Really well done

Unbelievably beautiful. My only critique is maybe some collusion sounds? Other than that it’s amazing

Thank you. I know that sounds and music is far from the best. Next time I'll try harder or ask for help :-)

Really great feel to the game! <3

It would be cool if there was a higher difficulty level. The hard mode is still kinda easy.
EDIT:And 5 minutes later I found out about Extreme difficulty. I was not paying attention at all.

I love this game! I was expecting to find it here since months but my old brain didn't want to help me reminding myself its title.

Wonderful work! It was a greatly polish experience

Super fun, and you captured the original gameplay so well! I loved this in the arcade with the analog wheel.

Remarkable. Not only technically impressive, but fun too.
