You can spawn creatures from your spells in these lanes (using the arrow keys), but each spell costs a certain number of crystals. You gain one crystal each turn (every 2 seconds), and there are also two crystal towers that will yield an additional crystal to whoever controls it for 5 turns.</p> <p>You can toggle unit info by using the left arrow, and Z (or C or N) and X (or V or M) to select which spell to cast next. In the overworld, use the arrows to move and Z and X for interaction,</p> <p>Good luck, young Magelord!</p> <hr /> <p>This cart is by far my largest PICO-8 undertaking so far. The spritesheet is filled up to the brink, the entire map space is used, and all the sound and music patterns have also been used! A lot of time was spent on optimising the code to get as much content as possible into the game. </p> <p>There are over 30 different challengers to take on, more than 15 different spells to find, and atleast 5 different upgrades that you can use to customise your spells.</p> <p>The game was originally made for the <a href="https://alakajam.com/4th-alakajam/435/wizard-duels/">4th Alakajam</a>, although that was just the core challenge gameplay. Since then the overworld and all the interactions and upgrades have been added.

It's a turn-based puzzler where you tactically extinguish - and start - fires.</p> <p>I decided to add a level editor to it and store the levels in &quot;the cloud&quot;. The way it�s done is by exploiting the GPIO flags that were added to PICO-8 presumably to be able to control simple lights on your Raspberry Pi or similar. Since the data needed to store a level is pretty light, I save it in these GPIO controls, which can then be read by the HTML5 app serving the PICO-8 cart. The data is then stored on my own server via a REST interface.</p> <p>People have done this before me, for example <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=12489">kometbomb</a> used this technique to post <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=3705">high-scores to kongreate</a> and <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=6654">BenWiley4000</a> created a <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=31084">library</a> to make it simple to use the GPIO flags (which I forked!).</p> <p>However, it�s very cool to have a PICO-8 game that enables user-generated content! I can�t wait to see what kind of crazy challenges will appear!</p> <p><a href="http://dollarone.games/games/wildfire/">Check it out!</a> (it's on my own server as I need to modify the HTML5 wrapper in order to access the GPIO flags).</p> <p>More info over at the 5th <a href="https://alakajam.com/5th-kajam/367/wildfire/">Kajam</a> page.</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=31849 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=31849 Sun, 09 Sep 2018 15:21:52 UTC The Lost Beans <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=54524#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico54653.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=54524#p"> The Lost Beans 1.2</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=11290"> dollarone</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=54524#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>A disaster has struck!
