Cart #exponentile-3 | 2024-05-18 | Code ▽ | Embed ▽ | License: CC4-BY-NC-SA

Hello, this is my first Pico-8 cartridge.

It's a fun and addictive puzzle game. To play, you swap tiles to create combinations (3 or more tiles with same value, horizontally or vertically). When a combination is created, the combination collapses into one tile, and the tile value is multiplied by a power of two, greater with the more tiles there are in the combination.

Beware: if you like puzzle games, you could spend hours playing this one (I did ;-)

This a Pico-8 rendition of Exponentile by Mike Bellika, made with his permission.

Here's a little tweak I made to @Krystman's Pico Checkmate (go check him out if you haven't). There are 10 different levels of computer for you to battle. After each battle you are rewarded a score in terms of stars: 1 for tying, 2 for winning with take-backs, and 3 for winning normally. As in the original the threefold rule isn't implemented but everything else should be. Let me know if you find any bugs :)

Here's an interactive Fibonacci sequence editor. Use the left and right arrows to select a number, and the up and down arrows to change it. Numbers are painted red when they do not belong to the Fibonacci sequence implied by their neighbours.

Cart #make_ten-2 | 2024-05-16 | Code ▽ | Embed ▽ | No License

Select numbers that add to ten, to remove them from the board. How high can you score in just 2 minutes?

An homage to Fruit Box. A FruitBox-like? There are some big differences in this version, the most obvious being the lack of music. (the music in the original is incredible)

how to play

  • Drag your mouse to select groups of numbers that add up to 10.
  • I recommend playing in fullscreen; it's easier to click on larger numbers.
  • In the original game, you're awarded one point per number removed,
  • Get the highest score you can within 2 minutes. Good luck!

Original Scoundrel Rules

Little Scoundrel (V1.0)

Was inspired by Zack Gage and Kurt Bieg to create a playable version online with fun sprites and streamlined gameplay, more to come including sound, animations, and so on. For now this is a working prototype!

Little Scoundrel (V1.1)

Added discard visuals as well as a tool tip for skipping a room!

Little Scoundrel (V1.2)

Added card animation, audio thanks to @Gruber and @Krystman, credits section you can access from the pause menu, and the original Scoundrel Rules which you can find above.

Little Scoundrel (V1.3)

Added a selection process to playing the cards simply back out of the selection by using the "z" or "c" key!

> a = "\F7"
> PRINT(a)

> b = SPLIT(a)[1]
> PRINT(b)
> PRINT(a==b)

notice that taking the string "\F7", and running it through SPLIT turns it into the number 7.

should b not be equal to a for any STRING value of a in the above?

When using HELP RUN this help text should say STAT(6) and not STAT(9).

This help reference is fine and does reflect the correct stat number to use.

The following code can be used to replicate this error:

Check it out on itch.io, and get access to the online leaderboard and additional content. I would appreciate it if you could leave me a small contribution for my work :)

PRION is a fan remake (or demake, or sidemake?) of the original Zarch(1987)/Virus(1988) game by David Braben.

Aliens are infecting Earth with a deadly disease. You have been tasked to destroy all spacecraft that pose a threat to our planet. Please act fast, as your reward is based on the amount of uninfected land in each wave of enemies. There are an estimated 10 waves of increasingly harder alien reinforcements. Reports also show that the extraterrestrials possess a device that can alter the force of gravity. We have equipped your ship with fuel and altitude gauges, a scanner, a laser cannon , and homing missiles.

Check out the full mission briefing on itch.io, or go ahead and figure it out as you go.

How to play

  • Use arrow keys to orient the ship
  • Press Z to thrust spacecraft
  • Press X to shoot laser cannon
  • Double-press X to shoot missile


3D graphics were done using the freely available Zarchy Engine for pico-8: https://github.com/tpnk-dev/zarchy-engine-pico8



  • add HOUSE
  • infected bush now gives 40 points, just like infected tree
  • attractor beam reduces player fuel

  • fixed jumpy spacecraft heights
  • fixed bug where sometimes the death score of the kill didn't count

  • make drones a little less likely to become mutant
  • some performance fixes with particles

Hello everyone! I'm wondering how I could have multiple animations? Like an idle, walking, running, etc. The problem is that when I run (which is the else) It goes through the whole animation sheet, I know why but have no clue how to tackle.

Responses much appreciated!

    -- player anim
    if not pl.wlk then
        if pl.sp <= 4 then
        if pl.sp <= 6.9 then

Wave catalog

* wave catalog link *

I was inspired by the Fill Pattern Catalog, And the annoyance of programming and trying to figure out the best way to input wavetable data for my Toot project. So I realized I wanted to just have preset waves I could download instead.

There's wavetables in both a list of 64 values and formatted pico8 wavetables. (A utility cart is provided if you want to exchange between the two yourself.)
I had 32, And 1kb downloads before but I thought maybe it was overkill/didn't know if it'd be useful and didn't want to compile them. (Let me know if and where they would be.)

Hope this is useful, And if you have any wavetables that you think are distinct enough or any flavors I missed please comment it below Thanks!

(Also thanks to luchak for creating the Wave Designer. excellent for creating waveforms too.)

So I logged in recently to check my game here, and I see now that the death animation is totally broken. the death animation loops when it shouldn't and the fadeout animation is really slow.
I have on my PC the version I downloaded a year ago, and the game is working fine on that version.
Was there something that changed with how Pico8 calculate things?
