This is awesome! Combo Pool is one of my favorite PICO-8 games, and fitting it into 1k - while still having it look and feel great - is amazing.

Super nice! Always awesome to see MicroW8 in the wild.
I'm impressed that you got this all working in 256b in C! For tiny intros like this I definitely recommend writing in CurlyWas - the inline/lazy declaration modifiers in particular are really really convenient for size optimization.
(Just realized this was from almost a year ago - not sure why Itch only recommended this to me now!)
This is about discovery, not control! :)
But yeah - agreed that a few presets might help. I'm thinking of doing an expanded post-jam version that adds a few easy missing features, so adding presets would make sense.
Interesting! Pico-8 will talk to the RPi GPIO pins so something might be possible there ... I'm kinda short on tokens but something basic may not be too hard to write if I can get a Pi set up appropriately for testing.
I wish I could make it less lo-fi! Unfortunately that’s a PICO-8 limitation. But I might work on a higher fidelity successor for a different platform in the future - no promises though. :)
I’ll see about turning off the full screen start!
