hi, i'm a bit new to this but your game looks great so, is it a stand alone game or do i need to buy and install this pico-8 thingy first please

Just beat this on steam, great game. Really impressive work given the pico 8 restrictions. I love all of the little VFX when you do things like dash, ground-pound, jump, etc. The game oozes polish.
Also loved the level design. I really appreciated how nonlinear the ‘collect 3 orbs’ section felt, though I can’t actually remember if there was an explicit ordering to it based on powerups. Maybe it had ‘nonlinear vibes’ haha! Nice job, your pico 8 games are always an inspiration.
Just completed this little gem. Absolutely brilliant. Got that Shovel Knight/Zelda/Metroidvania feel perfectly.
Gonna buy it for my dad's birthday. He's really into platformers so seems like he would enjoy this.
This is fantastic! I'm super super stuck after hearing about needing 3 orbs to unlock a gate, hoping to get past this next section.. How long is the game currently?
probably around an hour the first time? You can probably speedrun it in 15mins though
glad you like it!
I want to purchase this but before I do, may I ask how long does it take to beat the game? :)
not working on FAKE-08 :(. can you provide a split on multiple carts, maybe it will work?
That is unfortunately a known issue with FAKE-08 that it is unable to handle some of the latest pico-8 features (or how developers use them). The only thing that is minified is the code so splitting it unto several carts won't help as fake-08 will have the same issues.
check retrogamecorps video on yt about native pico8 on miyoo mini plus. maybe u can apply this to other handhelds as well?
I would like to buy it very much but I can't :(
wow id buy it and TAS it
Hello, this might be an odd question, but do you have a public email that I can contact you with?
fantastic game, won it from a giveaway done by pico-8 gamer
no criticisms here, except maybe the final boss was a tad long, super fun throughout, very short n' sweet
Just purchased it! I can't wait to play it!
Nice little game. Unfortunately I didn't end up beating it because (I believe) I got softlocked. The room featured in the second itch.io gif has the left entrance blocked (and I am to the left of it). I believe this happened because in a later room I was inside of a toggle block as it toggled, and it clipped me through the floor.
Thanks! If you go back to the beginning (third room?) there is a blue crystal you can hit which should toggle the blocks back.
Looks like a dope platformer!
I assumed I couldn't get through the vertical green room due to the mud (and needed something for it), so I spent what felt like 15 minutes seeing if there was some jumping technique to reach a switch that eventually needed the boomerang.
hey! Thanks, it was enlightening to watch! Can I ask you to remove the video? I’d rather not have full play thoughts on this page. Thanks!
Just finished playing your game and thought it was very good it's the best PICO-8 metrodavania I have played and believe and have played plenty. I'm trying to make a metrodavania myself in PICO-8 and I was wondering how were you able to use the entire spritesheet and mapsheet because for me if I fill up the entire spritesheet it also fills up half the mapsheet. If you could respond that would be very helpfull and I'd be forever thankfull.
Glad you enjoyed it!
I wore a custom map editor to the game that uses compression routines to pack map data at approx 3x. When playing the data is unpacked to ram and used as the map
A classic MetroidVania with cute graphics and a good level design.
I was hoping that the final boss was a bit more challenging, but for the rest everything was great. BTW It was really a pleasure play it.
glad you enjoyed it!
Did you find all 8 hearts?
can i ask how long it took to make
Of course - but my answer won't be very precise as I took some breaks during parts of the development. :)
All in all my guess is something between 6 and 10 weeks perhaps?
Excellent work! Great progression through backtracking familiar environments with new skills.
This looks adorable! <3
