Did you draw the sprites in a rotated way then?

ALSO!

After a game ends I have a feature request. Could you ignore the x and z key for five seconds after? I was going to take a screenshot of my game (I had hit at least 1700) but I got killed and hit x and immediately started again.

I did not. I didn't use sprites at all, in fact.
It's all just line drawing.

Yup, this was actually already on my to do list. I agree it's necessary!

Well, I promised Flack that if you were actually serious, I was going to kill myself because I couldn't go on with life, so unfortunately, this will be my last post.

On my headstone, please have the following engraved:

"1. 98% of Retro's interactions with everyone at JC has been him asking them to do favors for him.

2. The one thread where something is asked of him has gone -- and will always go -- unacknowledged."

(You'll need a pretty big stone.)

Someone has made a case for them. You can stick a Raspberry Pi that plays games in one... I think.



I need Pinneroids on a handheld.

It's a custom 3D printed case for a Raspberry Pi designed to look like a Gameboy.

PICO-8 is included in the itch.io bundle going around, so you can get it for $5 (and 700 other games and assets):
