Fatso’s Quest v0.0.5 (PICO-8 Game)

Fatso’s Quest is a PICO-8 game by Nachogrande96. Main idea behind this game is to collect coins, but with a few restrictions. You can only carry six coins at a time, and as you collect more coins you become heavier and can’t jump as high. When your pockets are full, you can’t jump at all!

Ufo Tofu v1.0 (PICO-8 Game)

Aliens are hungry for Ufo Tofu! Make symbol palindromes on a Bejeweld-like board. Snake your cursor around the field to find mirrored patterns. Be careful, though, as the aliens will eat the first palindrome you show them, even if it’s shorter than intended.

SLACKER v1.2 (PICO-8 Game)

SLACKER is a PICO-8 tribute to classic “stacking” game that lots of use wasted lots of time (and money) playing down the arcade. Coded by Liquidream.


* Now supports 60fps (thanks to @zep for adding it to PICO-8 v0.1.9)
* Also made it a tad easier (was too difficult before – not sure it was really ‘beatable’!)

Lander on Planet Cheese v2016.08.09 (PICO-8 Game)

Lander on Planet Cheese is a PICO-8 game by boomlinde.

You are stuck on planet cheese. You could slice your way out if only you had a slicer. Luckily you have a slicer detector…

Use the slicer detector (X) to pinpoint the location of the slicer. Hold (O) to lock the camera. The up button will turn on your thrusters, while left and right fires your horizontal course correction engines. You need to refuel every now and then. Luckily the cheese of Planet Cheese can be processed and turned into rocket fuel. Land safely on both foot pads at a low velocity to process cheese.


* Camera locked on player; no easing. This makes precise navigation easier. This also makes the camera lock mode useless, so it has been removed.
* Collision detection has been improved, and the vertical velocity threshold for safe landing has been increased to 1.5 pixels per frame. The safe landing threshold is now also consistent and you can’t randomly land safely at greater velocities.
* For a safe landing, both foot pads no longer need to be completely on the ground. As long as they both touch, it’s fine, making landing easier on smaller surfaces.
* The player can now thrust with either up or O, depending on which is used first, making it more joypad/digital stick friendly.

Pico-GO v1.0.1 (PICO-8 Game)

GO Game is a GO game by harraps. The game is playable and implement a counting system to display the score at the end of the game. You can comment/uncomment one line of code to display the territories instead.

Release notes:

I’ve updated the game now it’s called pico-go. I’ve implemented your suggestion except for the smaller cursor if the cursor was 5*5 then the goishis should be 5*5 too and there would be a gap between each goishis and it wouldn’t look good. But yeah at first I was frustrated that I couldn’t align precisely the goishis on the board. But now I think it’s fine as it is.
