[HOW TO PLAY]

Arrows -> Move around

Z + Arrows -> "Eat" the side, for example, remove a chip or infotron next to you without moving. Very helpful.

Hold X -> Blow up. This will kill you, but maybe you want to play another level.

Hold Z -> Place remote bomb (red diskettes). They will blow up after a little while, so clear up.

In the menu:

Press Z to show the main menu after credits. In main menu, us the arrows up and down to move around the levels, Z to start the level.

With X you can see a neat information page and the credits again, don't miss it.

YOU CAN PLAY ALL AND ANY LEVELS, THE COLOR ONLY MEANS YOU HAVEN'T WON THAT LEVEL YET, BUT YOU CAN PLAY IT.

----------------

[Final? Update!] All 111 original levels are playable, and everything should be working.

[Update!] Now with more levels, gravity and remote bombs!

Picoplex is a remake of one of my favourite games when I was a kid, in pico8. It's still a work in progress, but I hope to add the snik snaks soon. Quarantine is very productive.


Music in pico8 done by lisergishnu, and much help from rumpelcita for level painting. Love ya, guys.

Much thanks also to thisismypassword for their level packing help.

Also much love to the pico8, it's like going back to all those nights spent programming in pascal when I was a teenager.

Sprites look good!

Would you mind adding instructions (in game or on the page) for us who don’t know the rules?

Will do so, thanks for your feedback!

I will always be awful at Boulder Dash but I loved this

Well-made game.  Schway job.  Boulder Dash clone.  In Pico-8.  Like.  Keep this up.

Love the Boulder Dash vibes!
