So after a while of not making any games, PICO-8 has made me productive again! Here's a little arcade game called NETTY. Should be pretty easy to understand, but there's more detailed instructions on the itch page: https://tesselode.itch.io/netty
I'm planning on adding a couple things in future updates. Let me know what you think?
This is nice :) I especially like the trade-offs you make: do I spend extra time getting a combo multiplier on the green thingy, or do I go there as quickly as possible to get extra gems and increase my score that way?
My highscores thus far is 22500 on reflexive.
Also, nicely polished. All in all good job! :D
OH WOW :D I had this ultimate combination of a black hole when I already had a lot of gems and green things flying about, and I scored 55400 in total because of the combo multiplier! Don't think I can improve on that. :P
There did seem to be something strange with the highscore though, my previous highscore was that 22500, but at the ending screen it changed 'previous highscore' to 55300 and now when playing a new game it says my previous highest score was 55300, but I definitely scored 55400.
55400 Woop woop ^^
First time playing it here just now, Through the browser including brief time to get used to mechanics: 6800.
Extremely awesome mechanics that are fluid and easy to pickup without RTFM, The title screen and the text for both it AND the instructionals at the bottom were amazingly well done, Transitions between title game etc were a nice touch.. It really felt like it had that full 80s arcade experience. It reminded me in quite a lot of ways to that old "Cleaning bubble" arcade game where you polished a sink, Picking up lil' bits and bobs.
This is going on my PocketCHIP tomorrow :D
