The point of the game is to try and get as many points in 90 seconds by making a path through a grid of colored tiles. </p> <p>Pressing O allows you to rotate up to five tiles at a time, and pressing X attempts to draw a path through the grid. Only tiles of the same color as your start tile count when following the path. They also yield more points, but are destroyed if hit. If your path doesn't hit any other tile of the same color, nothing happens (to prevent people from holding down X to win :p )</p> Sun, 11 Apr 2021 14:47:57 UTC Final Fantasy Prelude <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=68395#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_ff_aquova-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=68395#p"> Final Fantasy Prelude</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=27259"> aquova</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=68395#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>I made this probably a year ago when I was first learning how the Pico-8 music editor worked.

I'm very pleased with how it turned out. This will probably be the final update to the game, as I've now completed everything I was interested in doing.</p> <p>UPDATE: Based on feedback, I've added the option to add a border or background around the minimap. The option can be seen in the pause menu (press []). I also added a sash that shows what level you're about to begin. </p> <p>My first real Pico-8 game! It's a clone of the classic arcade game Bosconian, which has always been a favorite of mine. I'm really happy with how it turned out. There's a few things that I might eventually revisit, and the music is sort of terrible, but all and all not bad for my first fully fledged game.</p> <p>X to shoot, [] to pause.

I quite like how this turned out in the end, although there's a few small visual things I could probably tune up. I did make a tweetcart version of the program w/o the buildings in (just barely) under 280 characters. I might use this as a visual to later try and make some appropriate music using Pico-8.</p> <p>The shimmering sun effect was based on a similar effect done (better) by user Svetlana here on the BBS.<br /> <a href=""></a></p> Sat, 17 Mar 2018 00:28:58 UTC Puffergame <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=49165#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico49164.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=49165#p"> Puffergame</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=27259"> aquova</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=49165#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> <br /> This is the first platformer I've made on Pico-8, featuring a character created on the Stardew Valley Discord for its first anniversary.
