Love this mechanic!

Thank you so much! This was the first thing I read this morning and it really brightened my day :)
To answer your question, yes, all of the courses in this game are procedurally generated ad they're just a collection of different coloured circles.
Glad you enjoyed my little game, have a lovely day!
There's definetly some more characters to be squeezed out here by just removing some of the whitespace and linebreaks. I managed to cut 18 characters off your code and not removing any logic, so there may be space for line clearing yet!
I was making my own version of tetris but it looks like I won't have space for the full game, here's what I have for line clearing though, it should work quite nicely for your version too;
for y=63,4,-1 do
for x=0,63 do
l=l and pget(x,y)>0
Basically, start from the bottom of the screen and work up, check each pixel from left to right, if not black, keep l to be true. If l is true after checking the whole line, copy the screen data from the top down to the line we just checked down by 1 line and start the check again (we might have multiple completed lines and continuing in the current loop might miss them!).
Anyway, excellent game, love the idea!
Hope to see you for TTJ5!
Oooo I love these sand game, very nice work!
Here's a hot tip though, rather than declare a big 2D array for all your pixels, you can make use of pget() and pset() to do the same job! I made a similar tweet cart a sort while ago with this in mind;
Hope to see you for TTJ5!
Thank you for the kind words!
The erratic movement of the pendulum getting faster and faster is something I am aware of and I actually fixed in an update a short while back. However it seems I neglected to update the version seen here, so thank you for reminding me to fix this!
There's now a speed variable which should 1) resolve the issue of speeding up too much and 2) provide a way to watch this demo in slow motion.
Currently the only files I've put for download is the source code , available for a small price.
That being said, I suppose I could pop a couple of executables up, it just didn't occur to me before now.
Can I ask why you might want a standalone executable over a browser based version?
I actually got the idea for the trees from one of my favourite games, Duck Duck On The Loose https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.lexaloffle.com/...
Essentially, layer a stack of circles (of varying colours) offset with a Z value. Shift each circle in the direction from the camera to the screen space position of each circle, using the Z value as the mmagnitude of the vector.
Thank you Philip!
Incidentally, I also appreciate your thoughts on Pico Pirates, but it seems when I switched the comments from a discussion forums to comments in light of your feedback, I lost your comment :(
PP certainly does have a number of issues around gameplay and particularly balancing and this is something I'm looking to discuss in an upcoming postmortem. Thank you for your feedback and kind words :)
I've updated the package today to include a read me containing instructions on how to overcome this issue.
It seems I forgot the include an important piece of information required for the Async plugin to function, the run-time version of C# for your project must be set to 4.0 or above. This can be done by going to Edit -> Project Settings -> Player) and changing “Scripting Runtime Version” to “Experimental (.NET 4.6 Equivalent)" or "4.X"
If you continue to run into issues, please hesitate to get in touch. If I miss your comment for whatever reason, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
As this was a GGJ entry I probably won't be going back to this any time soon, but I might consider putting out the shader I used to do the cross-stitch effect so you can enjoy more games that look like this in the future :)
