How to tell which is which? Pick it up and find out!</p> <img style="" border=0 src="/media/43772/bytesabor-music p8_3.gif" alt="" /> <img style="" border=0 src="/media/43772/bytesabor-music p8_0.gif" alt="" /> <p><em>Fight randomly generated bosses with unique patterns</em></p> <img style="" border=0 src="/media/43772/bytesabor-music p8_1.gif" alt="" /> <p><em>Collect different items that can change the outcome of your run, for better or for worse</em></p> <img style="" border=0 src="/media/43772/bytesabor-music p8_2.gif" alt="" /> <p><em>Simple yet effective gameplay that constantly gets more difficult</em></p> <p><strong>How to play:</strong></p> <ul> <li>Hold down <strong>O</strong> to prepare a teleport. Position the cursor with your arrow keys, and let go of <strong>O</strong> to teleport. Enemies caught inside of your path (indicated by the flashing line) will take damage. You are invulnerable for a very short period after teleporting.</li> <li>Use the <strong>arrow keys</strong> to move when not teleporting.</li> <li>The bar on the right is your chain.</li> <li>The bar on the left is your health. Enemies that go off screen will take some of it away, as well as taking damage.<br /> It's that simple!<br /> (I would have put this in the game, but I ran out of tokens. Sorry!)</li> </ul> <p><strong>Credits:</strong></p> <ul> <li><strong>Noba</strong> - Programming and sound effects</li> <li><strong>Nyeti</strong> - Music <a href=""></a> &amp; <a href=""></a></li> </ul> <p><strong>Update as of 18:59 13/09/20:</strong></p> <ul> <li>Increased HP loss from off screen enemies from 0.23 to 0.6</li> <li>Increased HP loss from getting hit from 8 to 16</li> <li>Increased chain lost from off screen enemies from 0.6 to 1.5</li> <li>Clamped base enemy increase after defeating a boss (different from item pickup enemy increase) to 6 to prevent memory leaks. Speed still increases indefinitely, but may be nerfed.</li> <li>A better boss theme!</li> </ul> Sun, 13 Sep 2020 17:06:11 UTC Advice for storing a larger map? <p>So I'm currently working on a semi randomly generated horizontal racing game. It's entirely horizontal, but the game will feature tracks that are a lot more elaborate with horizontal branching paths that are semi randomly generated in a spelunky style, made of 16x12 segments that are preset but with spikes and obstacles set in code. I'm having trouble figuring out how to fit all of the segments I want though, while still having the entirety of the map to work with, and possibly all of my sprite sheet. Does anyone have any advice on what I can do?</p> Sun, 13 Sep 2020 09:04:25 UTC Every Extend Extra - PICO 8 EDITION <h1>Every Extend Extra</h1> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=81453#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_tyubokedu-3.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=81453#p"> Every Extend Extra - Pico 8</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=43772"> Noba</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=81453#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p><strong>UPDATE 3RD SEPTEMBER 2020 16:28 PM:</strong></p> <ul> <li>Fixed various typos</li> <li>Made bullets bigger and flashy, but same small hitbox (middle circle)</li> <li>You now need a higher chain for an extend based on quicken count</li> <li>There is now a bar on the left which is based on time. The higher your time, the more points you get per chain, but take more damage + lose more time based on how high it is</li> </ul> <p><strong>Every Extend Extra</strong> is an arcade game about detonating your ship, causing colourful chain reactions in the enemies, granting you points.</p> <p>This game is my attempt at demaking it, as it's one of my favourite PSP games of all time and I thought it could do with some well deserved love.</p> <img style="" border=0 src="/media/43772/everyexendextra.p8_1.gif" alt="" /> <img style="" border=0 src="/media/43772/everyexendextra.p8_2.gif" alt="" /> <p>Features:</p> <ul> <li>Gameplay highly similar to the original, but in a small replayable Pico 8 format</li> <li>4 unique backgrounds, songs, and basic enemy sprites, giving you replayability options if you get bored of another</li> <li>4 upbeat and catchy songs from the Pico Tunes V2 album, by <a href=""> @Gruber</a></li> <li>Lots of colourful explosions</li> <li>Probably a lot of gameovers!</li> </ul> <p>Controls:</p> <ul> <li><strong>Z</strong> to slow down your ship</li> <li><strong>X</strong> to detonate</li> <li><strong>Z</strong> and then <strong>X</strong> held to delay an explosion</li> <li><strong>Arrows</strong> to move</li> </ul> <p>I put a lot of effort into this game. I hope you enjoy playing it just as much I enjoyed making it!</p> Wed, 02 Sep 2020 21:02:19 UTC Bullseye <h1>Bullseye</h1> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=81379#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_noba_bullseye-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=81379#p"> noba_bullseye</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=43772"> Noba</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=81379#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>Bullseye is a fast paced strategic arcade shooter where you don't shoot! Instead, enemy bullets damage each other, and you can weave your way between their attacks to make them shoot each other.</p> <p>It's relatively small, but I made it with the intention of making something fun, challenging and replayable. It features 3 enemies and 3 powerups. Each enemy has an upside and downside for the player, as well as a bomb, which of course can be triggered by enemies too which will make it damage your ship.</p> <p>Took about 2 days to make and I'm proud of it for my first actually finished and playable project.</p> <p>Music by the ever talented Gruber. Sound effects by me.</p> Sun, 30 Aug 2020 22:09:34 UTC Friendly Fire 0.4 <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=75616#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_friendly_fire-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=75616#p"> Friendly Fire 0.4</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=43772"> Noba</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=75616#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>Been working on my first Pico 8 game for the last few days. Thought it was finally &quot;okay&quot; enough to share!</p> <p>This is <strong>Friendly Fire!</strong> An arcade-y SHMUP like game where you control 2 ships at once in reverse directions. Enemies come at you from the middle pointing either left or right, it's your job to stop them from reaching either border, and to also not ram into your own bullets.</p> <p>Bullets cannot hurt the border, that includes enemy bullets and your own, but they CAN hurt everything else, including you. Basically, don't hit yourself, and don't hit the enemies.</p> <h3>Controls:</h3> <p><strong>Up/Down arrows</strong> - Move up or down, both ships move in opposite directions to each other<br /> <strong>X</strong> - Use powerups, not yet implemented but coming soonTM<br /> <strong>Z</strong> - Fire</p> <p><em>There are 3 ships to choose from. Hopefully they're all balanced and fun enough!</em></p> <p>The game also features a sort of dynamic soundtrack. As you do well, more instruments are introduced, when you collide with an enemy or an enemy collides with the border, it resets.</p> <p>Right now the game has 4 enemies, the game gets progressively harder with more spawning at once, as well as a mechanic thrown in starting from wave 3. Of course, being WIP I plan on updating this frequently with more enemies and stuff, so if you're interested keep an eye out.</p> <p>The code is a bit messy and not very consistent. I come from a GMS background and while I consider myself alright at programming, I thought I'd rather focus on getting something done than focusing on efficient token usage and stuff like that.</p> <p>I made the music myself but personally I think I'm pretty crappy at that. Sorry if it's ear burning!</p> Wed, 29 Apr 2020 23:05:22 UTC
