After a day's work Road Rex just wants to get home like everyone else. Road Rex is a giant dinosaur with laser eye beams.
Get home as fast as you can! Beat your arch-rival, the quick and messy Blue Dinosaur (tm). Stop tv traffic choppers from getting footage of the mayhem you cause. Try not to get a speeding ticket from a speed camera (speed limit is 70mph in the UK) - but if you do, make sure you do it in style for extra points. Shove cars out the way and spill delicious lorry loads of kebabs, shoes and beans. Try to exit the motorway in the left lane and don't get lost!
Arrow keys right and left - accelerate and decelerate
Arrow keys up and down - switch lanes, aim lasers
X - LASERS
Z/C - charge jump (release to jump)

Parking Masters is a game I made over a weekend for a friend's birthday. Said friend is fond of driving and once took a photo of his car parked very close to another which has become a running gag (many ridiculous photoshops).
I have turned the photo into a little arcade game/"very serious" simulation of parking in a manual car. I thought it would be a fun thing to do, turn a photo into some sprites for a PICO-8 game. Pleased with the results - photo-realistic action!
Up - gas pedal
Left and right - shift gear
X - Clutch
C - Brake
Park as quickly as you can, as close as you can! Try and avoid stalling and also from shunting the other car!
Score 10 belief points by keeping your followers happy. They like trees and plants, and eating tasty corn. They don't like swamps, being stuck in one place or things being on fire. You can also win by making your opponent's (Omnicow) followers unhappy.
Arrow keys - move
Z - use power
X - change power
Once, Henry was just a regular pig. He dreamed of being a magnificent wizard who was popular and cool. Through the sheer force of his own will and the belief of the nearby villagers, who saw promise in him - he became a giant flying head with reality bending powers. Summoning a mountain from the earth, he marvelled at his power.
"I will use my powers for good, and make my followers happy, with lovely forests and magical instant-corn from the fields"
As he said this, the earth shook and a giant cow's head appeared from behind the mountain he had just conjured, spitting fire from its eyes"
"Or maybe I'll just ruin someone else's day"
Raise power (yellow mana) raise the landscape. Followers cannot walk up steep slopes, and any upward slope will slow them down
Lower power (yellow mana) lower the landscape
Fire power (red mana) Create fireballs from your eyes. Destroys terrain and foliage
Forest power (green mana) Puts out fire and creates new foliage. Cleans out swampy land.
Rain power (blue mana) Puts out fire and cultivates fields that yield follower-pleasing corn. Too much rain makes the land swampy though.
Demo cartridge for creating 2D terrain. I'm using this for my own project but thought it would be useful for others. If you think you'll find it useful, please use in your projects. :) For more information see here - https://medium.com/@Powersaurus/journey-into-the-hills-part-2-8a209905d3de

This is my first finished PICO-8 cart.
Its an arcade game where you high five and fist bump cats.
High five the cats with your hand moving at speed for more points. Build up a combo to get a chance to pull off a secret handshake.
Arrow keys - move hand
X - Switch arm position
C - Switch between open hand and fist
This is version 1.1 - I tweaked the hit detection for high fives and added a tutorial skill level.
Hope you enjoy it! :)
