You are born as a tiny cell. You have to absorb smaller cells to grow, but be careful. The red cells want to absorb you, and size doesn't matter. Remember that every movement costs energy and leads to shrinkage ... even for the red cells. Just try to survive as long as possible.


Use wasd or the arrows to move the cell. If you completly absorbed by another cell restart the game with the x key.

Background story

Absorb is developed for the Pico1k game jam in september 2022 for the virtual console pico-8 . It has to be used a limited code size of 1024 compressed bytes and doesn't not use prepared sprites and sounds. The game is inspired by 'osmos'.

Pimon is inspired by the traditional simon game. I implemented a pico-8 version of this classical game to train my brain.


Pimon plays at first two tones. After that you have to repeat this tones in the correct order. If your are correct pimon will repeat the tones and add one more. Now you have to repeat it again and again ...
If you repeat 4 times the correct tones you get a live up. This allows you once to type in an incorrect answer. After that pimon will repeat the latest tones.


Start the game with hitting the x-button. As long as pimon plays you can not hit the tone-buttons. On your turn you use the arrow buttons to play the tones.

Background story

Some weeks ago I found the pico 8 platform and it inspired me to start program my own first pico 8 game. I decide to start with a small project to explore the API and documention. The simon game seems for me to be a manageable and great game mechanic for that.
