Made for TweetTweetJam 6. @Pancelor got it down to 515 chars. THANKS!

WAC-MAN ATE TOO MUCH!

Wac-Man ate so much he got a little tubby -- too tubby to fit through the hallways of his maze. So the dots feel obligated to fulfill their duty and go to him. Hope he can eat them fast enough!

Arrows to face up, down, left, right to eat.

Try to get a high score!

X to restart (since I have too many tokens anyway).

And I added quick sounds for the heckuvit.

Enjoy this primitive game that is pretty small but not small enough. :D

Fun game! Although I can only score around 200. I really need to check out the rest of your games on here

Cool! I may balance it more post-jam.


Myrrh’s Edge and Who Stole the Coal? are the more substantive ones.

Just played them both and loved them! I hope there's a lot more to come. I think it's time I started to look into PICO-8, seems like a lot of fun.

Great! Will keep making Pico-8 games for sure. 


Yeah it is a blast, cuz all the tools are built in, and constraints are very small so you can’t overscope much. Most fun solo or small twam game dev since the Apple ][ era.

I am helping out on Blaston (lore, world, single player campaign, arcade ganes) and similar stuff for Demeo.
