I keep getting an error for Line 0, Tab 0. ? Alongside a false global update. Should that even exist?
SOLVED! DELETED THE UPDATE_MAP CODE WHEN TRYING TO REWRITE IT DIFFERENTLY, FORGOT TO REPLACE IT
Code Line :
if (not game_over) then
if (not active_text) then
RUNTIME ERROR LINE 15 TAB 0
ATTEMPT TO CALL GLOBAL 'UPDATE_M
AP' (A NIL VALUE)
IN UPDATE LINE 15 (TAB 0)

This is a port of an old ZX Spectrum game called Sheer Panic (or Panic) which was a version of the old arcade game Space Panic.
This is just an initial attempt at it. I think I have got everything in there though.
The idea is to kill the monsters by digging pits in the floor and then knocking a monster down when it falls into the pit. More advanced monsters need to fall a larger distance to be killed.
Arrow keys to move around
X to dig
Z to fill
(Updated to remove death message and go back to menu)
Hi, I'm building a roguelike prototype on pico-8:
I'm not sure yet how much potential the concept has, but I want to push it as far as possible.
While I can (somewhat) handle the code, I need help to make:
- shiny graphics
- immersive sound effects/music
- accessible UI
If the game concept inspires you, I'd love hearing your ideas :)

Hi! This is the second PICO-8 game I have made! I made this for the Portland Indy Game Squad (PIGSquad) 3-Button, 3-Color game jam! the Creative Theme was One More Time. My dad did the sound and music (which is the ice cream truck music), and I did all the programming and everything else. Thanks!
What the tool can do
- 3D modeling in 16x16x16 size.
- Save and load into a sprite sheet.
- Export the loading code from the sprite sheet.
- Export the drawing code of the 3D model.
Control are followings(WIP)
"p01_triangle_163" source code by
- Added: bottom plate
- Added: Jumps the "Edit pointer" to the Vertex on the Mouse pointer(Mouse-L)
- Enabled: Z sort
- fixed: Weird rotation of space + Mouse-R
The classic 16-bit-era action puzzle game returns again -- enhanced and remastered. Pico de Pon brings favorite characters from across the PICO-8 library together for intense block-swapping battle.
Arrow keys, move cursor
X (or M or V) key, swap blocks
Z (or N or C) key, manually raise stack
E/S/D/F keys, move cursor
A (or Shift) key, swap blocks
Q (or Tab) key, manually raise stack
Swap blocks beneath the cursor. Horizontal or vertical runs of three or more matching block types are cleared. Swapping a block over an edge will cause it to fall.
The stack rises over time. The game ends when blocks reach the top of the stack. The rising of the stack is delayed while matched blocks are clearing.
Combos are triggered by clearing more than three blocks at once. Chains are triggered by matches caused by blocks falling due to cleared blocks below.
In SOLO mode, points are scored only from combos and chains. In VS mode, combos and chains send garbage blocks to your opponent’s stack.
Garbage blocks fall on the top of the stack. They can only be cleared by touching matches of other blocks. Garbage clears to standard blocks. Because these blocks stay suspended in air while converting, they provide an opportunity for counter attack by lining up matching blocks beneath to set up chains.
Special attack blocks [!] will send metal garbage even without a combo or chain. Metal garbage behaves like regular garbage but will not clear when touched by clearing regular garbage.
Made in collaboration with @stephan_gfx.

The last avatar of my unending quest for creating the perfect mix of innovative yet accessible roguelike...
A mahjong solitaire roguelike.
Use your weapons to clear the enemies, reach the exit and pick up a maximum of gold in the middle.
Right now it is very crude, but imagine there's more content, bosses, better UI...
If you feel daring, you can skip reading the instructions below, and after playing let us know how (un)intuitive the game controls are :)
The rest are the level tiles.
Pick one of your tiles, then use it on an enemy tile to clear it.
If your power is lower than the opponent, you will lose life.
If both tiles are the same color, opponent's special ability is negated.
Use all tiles in a weapon to fully recharge it.
You can also click your spell to recharge both weapons, but its costs increases each use.
Deal the exact amount of damage needed on an enemy to gain 1 energy.
(4/9/2020) Version 0.1.6 :
- 2 exits per level
- 3 new enemies
- skills : endurance (+max life), focus (+max energy)
- new color code
Older versions :
This was a game I was making and then covid19 struck and I haven't worked on it to much, I might come back to this and finish it but here it is if you want to look at it. (the game dosen't auto-reset so you will have to your self.)
Hope you enjoy it anyways.
I wrote a tutorial on Fandom that explains how to add Quick Actions, from Finder, in MacOS
Hope it helps!
Using version 0.1.12c, After running pico-8 once(pico-8.exe), closing the program, then re-running (pico-8.exe), the escape key to get to the editor no longer functions. Also, even after a fresh install, changing the carts folder in config.txt to anything but the default breaks it as well.
I have to reinstall for each use. There is no error in log file either.
A Shift-Escape key combo works after the standard escape stops working fortunately. Perhaps this is just a documentation update needed?
Had some fun playing around with pico-8 for the first time. Wanted to keep it as simple as I could and figured I'd try a go at a classic like snake.
Try not to die or you'll have to go to the last checkpoint! (which is Kirby so that's not too bad)
This is a fairly basic issue I'm facing... On Linux Mint 19.3, when I go to paste a function, it pastes twice when I only hit the key combo once. The same issue occurs when I go to undo something in the sprite/map editor. Is there anything else I should include in this report?
I am working on a small 3D modeling tool separate from the main game project.
The created 3D model is written to a sprite, and it is ready to be read.
However, operations and views are very confusing.
No such tool exists on the PICO-8 platform. (Or not seen)
I guess it's probably because there's an alternative and it's easier to produce.
Would you like to take advantage of this tool, even if it is paid?
