It's a tree planting simulator !<br /> I'm an ex tree planter, and always wanted to make a game using the mechanics of this job since it feels a bit like a puzzle. </p> <h2>How to play</h2> <h3>Level</h3> <ol> <li>Leave spacing between your trees so they can grow properly, 1 meter equals one space (8X8 pixel).</li> <li>Trees need to have a certain density for a radius to fullfill the reforestation requirement, i.e. in a radius of 4m I want to have about 5 trees. When you hold z button it opens up the radius and tells you (actual trees / number there should be). You can move the plot around while holding the button.</li> <li>You cannot bring too many trees with you, cause it's too heavy, so place your cache wisely to fill up your bags without having to walk too much ! eventually by buying new bags you will increase your capacity.</li> <li>Sometimes there is slash in the way (residues of wood or rocks). You can destroy it to make room for a perfectly placed tree. eventually buying a new shovel will help destroy them.</li> <li>Buying new boots will increase your speed.</li> <li>You earn money for every tree planted, the price is different for each block.</li> <li>Having a perfect density of trees will give you 50pts (it tolerates 0.5 difference high or low). In the level report, if you see &gt; sign it means try to plant with more space, if you see &lt; then tighten up your trees (&lt; too low density, &gt; too high density). If your density is wrong, you have a minus (10 * the difference with the requirement) pts.</li> <li>You need to plant at least 1/5 of all trees or you will get a minus 50pts.</li> <li>The faster you finish, more points you get.</li> <li>You get minus 5 points for trees that are too close to each others, and minus 10 points for trees planted in the woods, road or water.</li> </ol> <h3>Overworld</h3> <ol> <li>Repair and buy new equipment at the shops. Planting a tree wears out equipment.</li> <li>Rest at camp sites to replenish energy, moving and planting wears out energy.</li> <li>Use the arrows to travel between different regions</li> </ol> <h2>Inspirations</h2> <ul> <li>Golf Story : relaxing puzzle on different terrain</li> <li>Gargoyle's Quest : simple abilities to level up instead of character levelup</li> <li>Uniracer : your character being an object</li> <li>Mario 3 : the overworld to present levels with different paths</li> <li>Final Fantasy : management of resting and shops and music</li> </ul> <p>Thanks to my big brother for introducing me to the world of video games, game design and also pico8. I'm having a blast and I've been learning a lot through this experience !<br /> Can't wait to read your comments on the game, hope you like it ;)</p> <p>P-A</p> Fri, 31 Mar 2023 18:45:14 UTC Dotmaze <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=127152#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_dotmaze-2.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=127152#p"> dotmaze</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=75075"> palassonde</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=127152#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>Hi everyone, just completed my first game called Dotmaze, hope you enjoy !
