1 year old POOM

P#101543 2021-12-05 13:22 ( Edited 2021-12-06 07:28)

It blows my mind that this is even possible on pico-8.

P#101575 2021-12-05 21:37

I don't see why the star count on this isn't blowing up as fast.

P#101845 2021-12-07 04:54 ( Edited 2022-01-31 17:58)

thanks! that’s an ‘old’ game and a small level, maybe that.
(It’s nit even featured - quality standard is tough these days 😜)

YESSS POOM BABY! I have been playing this for so long on newgrounds... Now everyone gets to have fun! Best multicart/cart on the entire site!

P#102236 2021-12-09 23:06

finally... Pico8 runs Doom <3

P#102292 2021-12-10 12:51

i got a sub-60 100% run using gamepad controls on ultra-violence difficulty

P#102512 2021-12-12 23:50

Look I found a easter egg!

P#102524 2021-12-13 02:08

I'm no good at these kinds of games but damn if you didn't nail it on the head for fludity, motion, controls, and appearance, @freds72. Gold star.

As for your Easter Egg finding, @Fabolabert, that is epic ! :D

P#102526 2021-12-13 02:12

@TetraPengwin I know sub 20s without killing anything, never tried speed running a 100% 🤔 will try!
@Fabolabert hehe well spotted
@dw817 thanks (note that art/design is from @paranoidcactus)

P#103054 2021-12-18 11:58

after months of playing on itch.io im finally glad it got in the Pico-8 site

P#103610 2021-12-27 10:33

May I see the sprites? I refuse to belive you somehow fit all of those in the cart..

P#103854 2021-12-30 23:29

See devlog on itch, sprites (and map data) are loaded from 2 external carts.
The trick here was to use a technique compatible with BBS.
I can load up to 2x0x4300 bytes of data this way before firing the main cart.

P#103890 2021-12-31 07:09

Madlad... just how far can this be stretched now? (This is asking what/how large of a multicart could be made, I don't know much about code.)

P#105129 2022-01-15 09:01

not sure to get it - the main game on itch.io has 16 carts, 5 levels & 45mins of gameplay.
that’s not something the bbs can support

P#105130 2022-01-15 09:04


P#106020 2022-01-31 05:14

Can someone tell me how the get past the first part

P#106144 2022-02-01 19:05

@YungSpinach592 The exit switch is 3 doors away from the start. You need to collect the blue key card to get through the 2nd door on the way.

This BBS release only has one level - you need to go to the itch.io page if you want to enjoy the rest of POOM.

P#106154 2022-02-01 19:57

Cool! I wander if it is avalible to rp tunes from pico-8 games?!? I'm a way newbie. I Day as I put first cartridge in.. Thou about 3 years of knowing the stuff (and previous?)

P#107128 2022-02-17 23:55

ParanoidCactus put the OST on Youtube: https://youtube.com/channel/UCF9XUQWRFf1qWfH-cHhhfWw

that’s all songs from the full game

P#108451 2022-03-11 16:39

I finished very quickly bruh, so nice game!

P#113037 2022-06-12 03:13 ( Edited 2022-06-12 03:15)

Phenomenal game that pushes the PICO-8 to its limits. Discovered it thanks to the Obscure Speedruns Club.

P#115602 2022-08-11 12:57

My Best on "Hey, not too rough" is 29.29.

P#118071 2022-09-27 19:10

love it great job

P#119281 2022-10-19 04:20

You Know? This Gaming Content "Poom" Is Rated M For Mature, Because Is Inspired By "Doom"

I Recommend You Playing The Different Games That Are Not Rated Pico-8 Mature Content

P#120411 2022-11-10 01:32 ( Edited 2022-11-10 01:36)

Alright @alex K.

Just because you are 14-years old doesn't mean you should slam others because their games are seemingly mature to you.

You are here by choice. Please, enjoy the games and our community - and let's not get into a war about age rating for well-known games.

P#120426 2022-11-10 03:47 ( Edited 2022-11-10 03:54)

hanger 00.25.66 WR (no kills) https://streamable.com/bunr5r (hurt me plenty mode)

amazing work on this btw

P#121446 2022-11-27 00:11 ( Edited 2022-11-27 00:13)

@dw817 based. pico 8 its a pretty small community by itself, and such things as game being a little violent shouldn't be a problem.

P#121538 2022-11-28 20:38

and there is Jelpi in it so it cancels out M rating 😜

tbh - haven’t tough lt about it when publishing the game here…

P#121539 2022-11-28 21:15 ( Edited 2022-11-28 21:15)

I got an 18.79 after about 20 minutes of attempts, I couldn't find a faster run anywhere so I guess I'll post it here

P#134003 2023-09-06 23:56

I somehow beat this with both secrets and all kills on ultra violence. This is a really well made game and hope to see more. Something as simple as another gun would be great.
