Platformer designed around a unique checkpoint mechanic that will only award a checkpoint when the player proves their mastery of a screen. Spinoff of speedrunner favourite Slow Mole for the NES (free on Itch.io).

(Please note that the game is significantly harder when using touch controls.)


100% coded in lua for the Pico 8 game engine. Playable as a standalone app for Windows/Mac/Linux and Rasberry Pi.

This is a complete game, but it still might see some slight balance tweaks (that's why it's version 0.9).

Love the NES version, so this is pretty exciting!

Can you post the .p8 file as well? Would be great to try it in emulation...

Emulation will probably be pretty slow since this runs in 60fps, but it's an interesting idea when the game 100% finished.
