Pay attention to the top row, where the digits 0123456789 have been shuffled. Move the cursor right and left to choose a digit; press a button to select the digit. Your goal is to select four digits which are in order, or in reverse order. (Keeping a consistent beat to your inputs will cost you less life.)

If the presented digits were 5709134682, you could win by clicking on 0, then 1, then 3, and finally 4 since those are four increasing digits appearing in that order within 5709134682. At that point, you will be presented with another puzzle. You can also win by choosing four digits in reverse order.

The visualization in the center makes it easier to find these patterns.

That this is always possible is a consequence of Dilworth's theorem.

The interesting feature is that the cart stores a bunch of 4 letter words in a Bloom filter, e.g., about 6000 four letter words are probabilistically "stored" in 8 kilobytes. This English word database is stored in the region of memory reserved for the map.

The game itself is incomplete, but I wonder if other folks can think of other PICO-8 applications of a "four letter word database."
