Amazing level design!

Developer

Thanks!

Well done! I really liked the art and the color pallete, and the concept of a one-screen-metroidvania is very cool!

Developer

Thank you!

love to see some pico-8 submissions for the jam (the engine itself was almost designed for the theme).  I was really impressed with the use of alternate display palette for the game. And a single screen metroidvania is a really fascinating idea! A final note: I really appreciate the touch of the "dynamic music" :)

Developer(+1)

My mind was blown when I learned about the alternate color palette, now I use it on every project! The dynamic music was fun to work out too, now I want to make a more sophisticated adaptive soundtrack for something.

What did you use to make the music?

Developer

I just made it it the native pico-8 music editor. And for the different instruments to come in when you get the corresponding powerups, I just turned the right sound channels on and off with code.

This gets big ratings on Innovation, Theme, and Design. Such a fun concept, must have been a challenge to design on such a small canvas. Good job!

Developer

Thanks! yeah, it was a really fun game design puzzle. I had to consider for each powerup where the player would be when they got it, how to quickly teach them how it worked, where they would need to go next and how they would get there, and have the same physical space serve that purpose for all the powerups.

Overall a very charming game! I loved the name and was attracted instantly. Great work making something that's memorable in a very small package!  I had a little bit of trouble understanding the icons and abilities at first, but they were ultimately very satisfying!

Developer(+1)

Thanks, that's so good to hear! The abilities were meant to be a little bit surprising and unconventional, I'm glad they're enjoyable once you get the hang of them.

Oh definitely! The dash feels amazing! Hope you'll try my submission too!

Thanks! Making 2-bit art was a challenge, but you went even further with 1-bit, nice job.
