Updates

  • 2023-10-29 - Updated music, wiki texts, and fruit graphics. Added a more performant and accurate circle collision for the fruit, tweaked physics to not launch the fruit into the stratosphere (most of the time) and shouldn't sleep when dropping (crossing fingers).
  • 2023-10-26 - Added music, game over screen now properly goes to intro, tweaked drop sound effect
  • 2023-10-19 - Tweaked physics, bag for next fruits implemented, added persimon in the drop bag
  • 2023-10-18 - Fixed cantaloupe melon merge to water melon, tweaked physics more and bumping up friction
  • 2023-10-18 - Added wiki, moved debug to menu, tweaked physics, fruit that exited the box on game over is now highlighted

This is super cool!

The physics are pretty great and fun to watch but occasionally spit things out faster than I think they should which has resulted in both of my losses so far.

yeah a game based on a physic engine!!
good work πŸ‘Œ

minor gripe: you can instantly lose - some fruits will have huge velocity even with a relatively empty deck 😭

where is watermelone...?

@OWD5238 Oops. Merging melons didn't produce a watermelon. Fixed it with latest update.

P#136079 2023-10-18 19:59

This makes me want to investigate the pico-8 physics library, both to learn more on how such code works and also to figure out why your fruit would be so elastic.

Out of curiosity, are you simulating the friction when rubbing against the sides of the box?

P#136081 2023-10-18 20:59

@spoike now it's unplayable... fruits are flying all over the place..

P#136088 2023-10-19 01:48

same here - way too jumpy

P#136092 2023-10-19 06:43

I guess I'll have to write my own physics engine for this as it's too jiggly, since only circles are used it shouldn't be that hard. Right?!

Updated to make it less hard and jumpy. Also added persimon to the drop bag (original game did that).

Coooool!

Sometimes a fruit just flies out of the box...

Very fun, but sometimes when I try to drop a fruit it just stays at the top, and I instantly lose!

P#136139 2023-10-20 14:16

This is so well executed! The wiki is a really fun touch, as well.

Fruits randomly go flying which is frustrating to lose a game to, but everything else is perfect!

P#136369 2023-10-25 12:49

omg this demake is best thing hahahaha thank you for this!!!

Update now includes music. 🎢
Physics still wonky but it's whats next on the to do list for this game.

The bounce was so strong that I bounced and died unfairly! :(

Wonky physics aside, changing what "game over" means by adding the requirement for a fruit that's at the top of the screen to be currently colliding with a fruit that's currently colliding with a fruit that's... currently colliding with a fruit that's currently colliding with the floor, or something like that, might be a good patch.

Also, I've noticed a bug that may not have been reported yet. Occasionally, fruit will get stuck where they spawn at the top of the screen. This can cause subsequent fruit placed at that location to get pushed above the kill ceiling, which above patch should also solve (as the floating fruits are not colliding with the floor).

Needless to say, I finally got a watermelon. Can't wait to see this game patched, it'd be a good casual game.

Just wanted to say thank you for saving me the distraction of trying to make this myself! Very much appreciated, you've saved my project. πŸ˜…

Updated the game with more performant and accurate circle collision physics, which takes less toll on the PICO-8 CPU budget (which reduces the risk of glitching). Physics tweaked to not launch the fruit to the stratosphere (hopefully).

It also has some updated graphics, music and wiki texts among other small changes.

The physics in the latest version is spot on. The game is really fun to play. Chaining a sequence of merges together is very satisfying.

It's fixed, and totally deserves the featured!

P#136624 2023-10-30 17:09

love this game theres bugs tho

P#136626 2023-10-30 19:37

What an awesome game - thank you!

lovely Water melon

This game is very hot these days. I know it from tiktok.

I finally got the watermelon, for real!

This was actually my second time getting it. The first time, one of the fruits immediately jumped off the screen. The next task is to somehow get 2 watermelons to pop together, but it's most likely unfeasible for me.

Best Score: 3109

P#136789 2023-11-02 08:45 ( Edited 2023-11-09 17:03)

I saw someone playing this game yesterday, and it looked fun. Now it's manifested itself to me in PICO-8 form! Thank you for making this, spoike

P#136790 2023-11-02 09:53

2283 is my best rn, i got one watermelon

P#136802 2023-11-02 15:21

Cute little game, not exactly my cup of tea but I still had some fun with it.

Also I really like the "wiki" feature.

looks like I won 2048

Anyway great game

how do i download it. this is my first time trying to play pico 8 games

P#136935 2023-11-05 01:52

@Polar_Opposite There are some ways:

  • If you have a copy of PICO-8: Go to SPLORE and look the game up on featured carts or search for ”suika demake”. This will be downloaded in a cache folder IIRC.

  • If you need to play it on an emulator: Click on ”Cart” link beneath the game above to download the cart png. Put that png file in your device’s cart directory (or drag and drop it into PICO-8 client).

  • If you have the Itch client: IIRC you can download the web version on itch.io
P#136967 2023-11-05 15:18

This fruits in this game is so bouncy that I kept losing not because of too much fruits in the box but because fruits bounce one another until one fruit went out.
Anyways, nice game.

This physics is more fun than original πŸ…πŸŠπŸπŸˆπŸ‹πŸ’πŸ“

P#137462 2023-11-15 09:20 ( Edited 2023-11-15 09:21)

Is it just me, or are the fruits' colliders all pentagons now? I remember some of them being heptagons or nonagons before... also, aren't they supposed to be circles?

P#137673 2023-11-20 11:47 ( Edited 2023-11-20 11:48)

Currently the collision check between fruits is circle-circle. The collision check between fruit and the box bounds is with polygons.
