PICO-8 WIP port of RetroSouls Alter Ego game

You control a hero who has a phantom twin, his alter ego. When the hero moves, the alter ego moves too in a mirrored fashion. In some levels the movements are mirrored horizontally, in other ones they are mirrored vertically. You can switch between the hero and his alter ego limited number of times in a level…


  • arrows = walk and climb
  • Z = Switch place with ego
  • X = Switch place with ego

Great idea for a game. However, I ran into a couple of bugs.

  1. After I lost all my lives I could not start another game. Pressing X at the title screen too me back to the game over screen instead of starting a new game.

  2. On level 2, after stepping off the top platform, my character got stuck inside the platform and could not move.

Thanks @dredds for your feedback. I updated the cartridge.

  1. I fixed the issue with the title screen when starting a new game.
  2. I wasn't able to reproduce the bug, but I added something that might prevent it to happen. If you still have the issue or can give me more informations that would be appreciated. 🙌

The second bug is fixed... the player doesn't get stuck in blocks when falling from a higher platform.

The first bug is not quite fixed. When starting another game after losing all my lives, the game starts at the last level I reached, in the state it last was (e.g. collapsing platforms are missing where I walked on them).

Despite the bugs, I enjoyed the game. Good puzzles that are not immediately obvious (even the first level), and nice presentation.

Thanks a lot for you feedback! That really helped me.

I think I fixed it properly this time 🤞
