RUBBISH

(another PICO-8 game from me)

Controls

Menu: Z to start game.

Game: Left-click on trucks to move in the direction the truck is facing. Right-click on trucks to rotate them.

Game over: Z to restart.

Mechanics

Each level ends when you have used the trucks to collect every piece of rubbish. Click on a truck to move it in the direction it's facing. It will stop when it hits the edge of the screen, or another truck.

Commentary

Puzzle design is super difficult. But this game was a lot of fun to make! Designing the trucks and the rubbish kept me interested over the month, then in the last few days I finally figured out where I was going with it. I bumped over into November because of a number of commitments and other noisy stuff, but I'm very happy with how it came out. Maybe I will make more levels eventually? I'm sorry if it's very boring to people who do lots of puzzles!

Install instructions

The game should work great in the browser whether downloaded or not! Download the ZIP and put both files in the same folder, then double-click on 'rubbish.html'. It should open like a normal webpage.

The binaries just need to be downloaded and unzipped on the correct kind of computer - they should work from the unzipped folder with no extra messing. I'm just using the built-in PICO-8 binary export, but please let me know if something is weird with them. It is a new enough feature.

If you have PICO-8 and want to check out the game's code/etc. or just play it in the 'real thing', download either rubbish.p8 or rubbish.p8.png to your pico-8/carts directory, then load from within the game with 'load rubbish'.
