The game features 3D graphics and 3D controls (movement along all 3 axes is possible and needed to clear the levels) and dynamic sound effects.</p> <p>I have tried to create a unique experience for PICO-8, both in terms of presentation and gameplay and invested quite some time in the game's feeling and atmosphere.</p> <p>I would love to hear what you think and include your feedback into the game.</p> <p>Cheers, Matt</p> Mon, 10 Sep 2018 03:40:09 UTC Upward <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=53543#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_upward-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=53543#p"> upward</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=30188"> matthias</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=53543#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>-</p> <img style="" border=0 src="" alt="" /> <p>A puzzle platformer by <a href="">Matthias Falk</a>, made in 5 days.</p> <p>The only thing you can do is jump - is that enough to climb a mountain?</p> <p>Some stats:</p> <ul> <li>6613/8192 tokens used (did some refactoring near the end since code wouldn't have fit otherwise)</li> <li>nearly full tilesheet/map used</li> </ul> <p>This is my first PICO-8 game, I hope you like it.</p> <p>Touch controls (touch to jump) also supported.</p> <p>You can also support and download the game via <a href=""></a>.</p> <hr /> <p>Updated to v1.1 with following changes:</p> <ul> <li>Save game: Game will now autosave each level and you can quit/resume the game any time now at the point you left off.</li> <li>Mouse/touch controls: Game can now be fully controlled via mouse/touch (also added small clickable reset button, in case player gets stuck).
