This is my first pico-8 game! I wanted to remake one of my favorite mobile games called "1-meter" and added an extra element to make interesting gameplay!

Press Z to change plates
Press X to change patterns/colors or the background table cloth
Use Arrow keys to play!

See my itch.io page where I created a nice page for this game here: https://nschaitanya.itch.io/spaghetti

P.S. It would be great if anyone wants to add some music to this game!

Pretty good for a first game, also maybe Gruber @gruber_music might help?

Thank you! Yeah I'm learning from his youtube tutorials as of now, but it will take a while as I'm still new to pico-8!

Nice, @nitron ! And yes after a-while it definitely does resemble spaghetti.

Gold star work !

That is some tasty spaghetti!

I like it! Reminds me of my favorite intellivision game, snafu.

I got snagged a few times by meatballs popping up right in front of me. maybe the meatballs are pre-placed?

I think this game would be good with levels too - maybe after making a certain $ amount of spaghetti, a new plate comes in, and its faster.

Nice job! Great first game!

This is cute and fun! I had a similar issue with meatballs appearing right in front of me. If they're randomly generated, maybe you could do some limits on the x- and y- position to make sure they're a minimum distance away from the spaghetti's "head"?

Great job, though! I liked the different plates--my favorite is the tall oval one

Edit: Current high score is $8.95

Actually, those meatballs/spices randomly get generated around your current position. It was to test quick reflexes so I didn't do anything about them popping up in front of the spaghetti, but I will change the code for that.

Hi @nitron.

An easy way to make sure a meatball doesn't appear in the player's path is to first look at which direction the player is going, UP DOWN LEFT RIGHT.

Then when you place a meatball, make sure it is not right in the player's path.

For instance. If the player is traveling UP then do not make a meatball that matches the player's X but is vertically higher than the player's Y. Where the player would run right into it.

In later levels you might make the meatballs bigger 2x2, 3x3, etc.

Hey @dw817,

That's actually a wonderful idea! I will totally try to do that whenever I work on the game.
