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.
- Z = confirm
- X = back
- 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).
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 :-)
