It's an improved version of my <a href="">Camel Race</a> game.</p> <h2>How to play</h2> <p>You can choose your racer, and then you play three rounds of two laps each.<br /> To advance, you have to press the arrow button matching the icon by your side. In the second round you also have to use the circle (&quot;Z&quot;) button, and in the third one also the cross (&quot;X&quot;) button.</p> <p>There's a flag in the upper side. When it's activated, you get a boost when pressing the right button. In the second and third row there's also a pirate flag. When you see it, you have to press the opposite direction as the one that's shown.</p> <p>In each race, the first player gets 10 points, the second one gets 6 points, and the last one 3. If there's a tie at the end, the winner is decided by the lesser time. Best record is saved.</p> <p>You get an extra point (&quot;bonus&quot;) when you do 10 clicks without a mistake.</p> <h2>Credits</h2> <p>Character graphics: Suterp (8yo), slightly tuned by me.</p> <p>All racers are inspired in real youtubers from <em>&quot;los compas&quot;</em>: Mikecrack, Rius Play, Invictor, El trollino, Sparta, Elmayo97, Timba VK and Raptorgamer.</p> <p>Songs are free versions of &quot;Diamantito 3&quot; and &quot;Diamatito 2&quot; (which are respectively versions of &quot;Quiero oir tu voz&quot; from Mago de Oz and Caramelldansen from Caramella Grils).</p> <p>For Caramelldansen, I used <a href="">midi2pico</a> and then tuned it by hand. </p> Tue, 08 Dec 2020 14:26:32 UTC Camel Race <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=79139#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_camellos-12.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=79139#p"> camellos</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=45796"> ganso</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=79139#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>Hi!<br /> That's my first attempt at a PICO8 game: Camel Race.</p> <p>In the late eighties, when I was a child, my first ZX Spectrum BASIC game was a totally random camel race. Now my son is eight, he's started learning to code, and we've made a &quot;modern&quot; version.</p> <p>Comments are very welcome!</p> Fri, 10 Jul 2020 23:27:31 UTC
