I'm making a serious effort to create a PICO-8 version of Sid Meier's Civilization. This is a challenge because the rules are complicated but I'm having fun and that's the primary reason to do anything.



  • Options menu
  • Initial city manager implementation
  • Implemented unit production selection


  • Added units: Cannon, Chariot, Armor, Mech.Inf, Artillery, Sail
  • Added black border to cities that contain a unit
  • Minimap shows explored map, cities, active unit
  • Implemented tribal/goody hut
  • Show player gold
  • Fixed movement stuck bug


  • Added units: Musketeers, Riflemen, Knights, Catapult
  • Fixed double movement bug
  • Implemented building and moving on roads
  • Centralized unit data


  • Fixed crash when choosing 'customize world'
  • Fixed crash when building second city
  • Added 'Disband' unit action


  • Code optimizations
  • Centralized menu code
  • Made game sidebar 8 pixels wider
  • Improved tribe colours
  • Implemented exploration fog
  • Implemented unit actions (only skip turn or build city, currently)
  • Implemented building cities
  • Cities will grow/build units semi-randomly
  • Current randomly available units: Settlers, Militia, Phalanx, Legion, Cavalry, Tririme


  • Optimizations to map generation algorithm
  • Added main menu logo animation
  • Added loading screen
  • New game parameter selection (difficulty/number of civs/tribe)
  • Gameplay UI
  • (Very) Initial gameplay
  • For debugging purposes, the player starts with a settler, a militia and a tririme unit
  • Use the (O) button to toggle between player and camera(map) movement


I have implemented the map generation algorithm of Sid Meier's Civilization in a PICO-8 cartridge, with the intention of implementing part of the Civilization gameplay. This is started mostly as an exercise for me to find out how to optimize PICO-8 code, but I think getting (at least a part of) the gameplay implemented is not far fetched.

Just started coding with PICO-8. This is a remake for an Android game I made years ago. Place the blocks on the grid, fill rows and columns to gain points.



  • Updated logo on the main menu
  • Added some sound effects
  • Added fade-out animation when a row or column is full


  • First version of the game

Upcoming features for next version:

  • Implement bonus when rows or columns are of the same colour
  • Improved graphics
  • Add more sounds to the game
  • Add multiple game modes
