The Retro League Podcast – Episode 441 – A Coin To Enter

The Retro League Podcast features discussion about the latest retro gaming news, re-releases, community developments and reviews of our favorite games.

This week:

This week we are joined by a couple of special guests from Mega Visions magazine. They’re working to create a Sega-focused magazine that’s worth keeping, and they had some hands-on experience with some upcoming retro game consoles. There might be a toaster that will burn the image of a famous console mascot into your bread and our listeners left their consoles on for a long time in this episode of the Retro League.

Upward v2018.06.20 (PICO-8 Game)

Upward is a minimalism PICO-8 puzzle platformer by Matthias Falk, made in only 5 days. The only thing you can do is jump – is that enough to climb a mountain?

Changes:

* Save game: Game will now autosave each level and you can quit/resume the game any time now at the point you left off.
* Mouse/touch controls: Game can now be fully controlled via mouse/touch (also added small clickable reset button, in case player gets stuck). Since the game has always been a one-tap game, we now have a mobile-ready PICO platformer!
* Difficulty curve: made some adjustments in the first few screens to make difficulty curve a bit less steep.
* More changes: Made bullet hitboxes more accurate and thus a little bit more foregiving.
