My second PICO-8 game. In this one, you're Santa delivering presents in the wee hours of Christmas morning. I'm fairly happy with the result, although the game is quite short. My top score is 79% :)
I tried to incorporate all of the elements to make this a "real" game, e.g. title screen, in-game instructions, music. A high scores list at the end would have probably been a good addition. If you have thoughts on other ways to polish the game, let me know. I'm still exploring other PICO-8 games (really enjoying the advent calendar).
This game was made for an itch.io game jam where you only use two buttons (pretty easy to accommodate on PICO-8!):
I put up an iPhone-friendly version of the game on itch.io here (sound and input don't work so well for me on the embedded versions on the BBS):
Just discovered PICO-8 about a week ago (how did I not know about this sooner!?), and this is my first PICO-8 release. It is a demake of a very simple game I made a long time ago named Avoision.
Instructions: You control the green square. Try to capture the red square while avoiding the moving white squares. Super simple, but I've found it to be fun in small bursts. Enjoy!
You can play the original (HTML5) game here, if you're so inclined:
