Micro RTS (05-01-2017) (PICO-8 Game)

Micro RTS is a PICO-8 game by gfcarstensen. Battle your computer opponent to the death. Build and upgrade your defences, attack enemy towers and explore the procedurally generated world. Win by defeating all enemy towers. Your minions harvest wood. Use this to build new towers or upgrade existing ones. Select your tower once warriors are present and target an enemy tower to attack.


1. Changed computer/AI opponent to also use fog of war rules.
2. Adjusted AI logic to not build it’s own towers so close together
3. Adjusted AI to attack from multiple towers more often when it outnumbers you substantially. Less stalemate outcomes arise then.
4. Made it visible which towers had been selected when transferring warriors or attacking.

P-Tapper v1.0 (PICO-8 Game)

P-Tapper by Milkymalk is a remake/demake of Tapper known from the Commodore 64.

You use Z to tap a beer. Holding the button will fill the glass, releasing it will send the beer across the table. The fuller the glass is, the more the receiving patron will be knocked back. If all patrons are knocked out of the bar, you win the level. Patrons have to be fully inside to catch the glass (nobody likes being served while he hasn’t even entered yet). Any glass that is not caught will smash and lose you a life.

When they finish drinking, they send the glass back to you. You have to either catch them, giving you a fresh glass (or loses you life if you fail to), or have the waitress collect them, which is convenient, but gives no points and you have to wait for her to return to receive the glasses.

You send the waitress by pressing X next to the bell at the bottom.

When the barrel is empty or close to empty (3 pixels of beer left), you press X while next to it to order a fresh one.

Melting Snow: Hide and Seek v1.0.1 (PICO-8 Game)

Melting Snow: Hide and Seek by OldPeculier is a two-player hide and seek game played in the snow. The first player hides. As you do so, you inevitably leave clues: footprints in the snow, barrels pushed out of place, gates left open, chickens frightened into odd places. After you hide, the second player (who has been closing his eyes) takes over as the seeker. You look for the hider, but not just anywhere: try to narrow your search by deducing where the hider must be. To investigate a place, move to it and then tap the Z and X keys rapidly back and forth. Once you’ve filled the search bar the game will tell you whether you’ve found the hider. If not, keep searching until the time runs out.
