So I got my arduboy a couple of weeks ago and struggled to think of something to make for it before I was struck by a desire to make a picross game so here it is.
25 Puzzles some of them even resemble things!
I hope you check it out. I’ll get around to adding it to the repository soon but I’ve got a month old baby yelling at me!
You can play it on the emulator here: https://felipemanga.github.io/ProjectABE/?url=http://candyleader.com/games/picross_a.hex
Or just get the hex file for your own machine here: http://candyleader.com/games/picross_a.hex
It’s using the arduboy2 library and doesn’t touch EEPROM or anything so it should be fine and dandy. One day I might add some rudimentary save functionality though.
This looks really well done. I love that you can select a puzzle rather than have to do them sequentially.
For some reason a nice puzzle select menu was super important to me and probably where most of the code (not puzzle design) time went. Thanks!
I just did them all … its amazing you got such recognisable things from a 5x5 grid!
Just wanted to try this game out but I noticed it is no longer there @Candyleader could you upload the game here or post it again?
Oh crikey yeah thank you! I’m migrating my website to a new provider so it’s still sitting on my work desktop.
I’ll sweeten the deal by making a .arduboy file when I’m back in the office tomorrow.
Have you considered hosting the code and
.hex on GitHub?
I have considered it yeah, that project was just a quick hack though really. I’ll probably pop it up there once I get everything in order.
Right I’ve quickly farted up a github repo
I’ll get the arduboy file put together and whack it up there sometime this week…
Farted up? What does that mean?
Means it’s in the cloud now.
