This version is already fully playable.<br /> You take turns playing cards against the computer. You goal is to build you castle (the left one) up to a height of 100 or destroy the computer's castle (the right one).<br /> This version is not 100% ANTS, I had to reduce the card hand size from 8 to 7 (notice that Arcomage has only 6), but all cards are included (I renamed some and I tweaked some minor stats). </p> <p>Features still missing:</p> <ul> <li>sound effects</li> <li>music</li> <li>some gfx could be nicer</li> <li>difficulty settings </li> </ul> <p>Tell me what you think of it and what I might improve.</p> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=77444#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_picomage_wip-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=77444#p"> picomage_wip</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=44021"> NicoPico</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=77444#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> Sun, 31 May 2020 07:10:57 UTC wordguess <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=76417#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_wordguess-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=76417#p"> wordguess</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=44021"> NicoPico</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=76417#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>Guess the word</p> <p>Hi, this is my first game for the PICO-8.<br /> It's a word guessing game like hangman, but without the actual man who is going to be hanged.<br /> As this is a word game, it comes in two different flavours:<br /> First there is your typical 'vanilla' English version above and<br /> second I made a version in everyone's favourite language: German.<br /> Feel free to create a version for another language!</p> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=76417#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_wordguess_de-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=76417#p"> wordguess_de</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=44021"> NicoPico</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=76417#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>Errate das Wort</p> <p>Have fun!</p> Tue, 12 May 2020 06:16:48 UTC
