Just a simple cart I made for a new year's countdown
Just a little cart I made to play around with some 3d projection.
I also used the idea from this post to avoid storing the confetti in an array.
Edit : made some adjustments after understanding the math better and added documentation
This is a cart I made that can play certain wave files by reading from the 0x800 serial port (dropped files) and writing to the 0x808 port. It also graphs the samples being played.
Note: if you drop any old wav file, your ears may not thank you; you will want to make sure the file is formatted correctly. I made files that work with this cart by using Audacity and doing the following steps:
1) Open existing wave file
2) Set project rate to 5512 Hz (located in the lower left) :
3) If the audio track is stereo, split stereo to mono
4) Export file in RAW format using unsigned 8 bit PCM:
Note2: In BBS the limit for dropped files is 256 KB, which only allows files up to about 48 seconds long. Running from a Pico-8 terminal will allow much larger files (up to 16 MB, or around 50 minutes)
I was so preoccupied with whether I could, I didn’t stop to think if I should.
v4: utilized memory to make the audio clip longer
A cart I wrote to experiment with the 0x808 serial port. Arrow keys adjust the frequency and volume of the sin wav being written to the port. A graph of the samples written each frame is displayed to the screen.
Added some enhancements:
Added several waveforms besides sine which can be cycled using 🅾️❎
Tuned to C4 = 256 Hz rather than A4 = 440 Hz to have a nice 12 cycles per frame synced initially
Updated graph to distinguish between points and the lines between them and added a zero line
Displaying the min and max of current waveform (useful for testing that new waveforms stay in range)
been playing Shredder's Revenge and just wanted to make a little demo
Move with arrows and switch turtles with the buttons
Just something I was experimenting with this afternoon.
Ever wonder what Tetris would be like if it used hexagons instead of squares? It would look like this! Tetrahex plays like Tetris, but uses tetrahexes instead of tetronimoes.
v1.1 - Added 🅾️+❎ control option
v1.2 - Added Tetronimo mode!
This is my second major project and first game for the PICO-8; an arcade shooter where you dodge and shoot meteors and try to survive long enough to escape the storm. Get enough points and you can buy upgrades for your next game.
Here is a screenshot of the stats from the end of my first complete playthrough.
(These instructions can also be found on the title screen)
Try to survive the meteor storm as long as possible.
Every 10 seconds you survive is 10 pts
Dodge meteors for 10 pts, or blast them for 200 pts!
Use ⬅️➡️⬆️⬇️ to move
This spends your green bars
Use ❎🅾️ to blast
This spends your red bars
Getting hit by a meteor will spend your purple bars
If all of your bars are at least partially full, you may
Pts may be spent at the end of a game to purchase upgrades.
Just bought pico-8 and worked on this as my project for the week.
