if you’re looking for another platform to port Polarium to, I think Playdate would be a good fit. Probably a lot of Lua from Pico-8 version could be reused.
Draw a single stroke, flip tiles from black to white or vice versa, and turn each single line into a solid color each. A Polarium fan game for the PICO-8.
Features 100 levels, and a level editor so you can make your own levels or play other people's custom levels. Custom level passwords are fully compatible with Polarium.
- Arrow keys: Move
- Z: Primary key (select menu item, draw and finish stroke)
- X: Secondary key (go back, cancel stroke)
- Enter: Menu (pause, go back, show hint)
Instead of Z/X, you can use C/V or N/M (if you use a QZERTY keyboard, for example).
You can download this game as a .P8.PNG cartridge that can be loaded and played in PICO-8, or as stand-alone executable programs for Linux, Mac OS X or Windows.
