That's a very cool arcade game, so simple to get into it, addictive after the first play, it's just well done. The kind of game you can return into and always love at each start.
Update : I added an Android version, with special touch controls.
Here is Combo Pool, a game made using Pico 8, and winning entry to p8jam2. It's a game where you throw colored marbles against each other. If two marbles of the same color make contact, they merge and upgrade to the next color. Your lifebar diminish with the number of balls on the field. If you lifebar is empty, you enter in a sudden death mode, and your last ball must save you by removing some balls.
Controls : use arrows left-right to adjust direction, and key "c" to launch a ball.
Clic on the game to give it focus if buttons doesnt work.
- Dark and grey balls do more damage to your life bar, so avoid keeping too many at the same time
- Score system depend on number of rebound before merging and on balls colors
- A usefull technique is to quickly throw two dark ball and make them merge at the first collision
- Try to avoid exploding pink balls as long as you can, you can expect to make more points in the final explosion

Very addictive and fun! Nice game!

I can’t click anything on a touchscreen
This is oddly addictive.
really fun! great game. got 135320 in my first playthrough, didn't realize the game would end after the pink marbles.
game 2 clocks in at 182100. :D
Really nice game. It's not often that I finish an arcade game, even less frequent that I replay it in "Hard" mode :) Congrats it's very fun !
Final Score: 124980
I love the concept ! It would be awesome with a local-multiplayer game mode ! :o
I really enjoy the game but wish it tracked my top scores.
Great fun! :D
This is great! Fun gameplay, nice sounds, and pleasing art! Keep up the good work :)
its not to good
its very good a little bit kinda.
This is my favorite game! Good job at making this!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love it! What engine or IDE did you use to make it? Wha language is it programmed in?
This was made in PICO-8, a virtual retro game console.
You'r games are awesome.
I love this game! Keep it up!
really like it,good stuff
This game is great. Just sat down for a second and played for an hour. Very elegant design.
I just played this one again on Hard and broke my former highscore! :D It didn't lose any of its arcade-y flair and I congratulate you on that, still addictive, still super fun. <3 The color palette was an absolute delight and I think that the focus on the collision physics have a huge part in the satisfaction a player can get through your game. :) A wonderful PICO-8 game, which I happily recommended in an article on our blog and also did a little gameplay video for. <3
Do you reprogrammed the game for android or how have you done it?
I didn't need to remake everything as I used PicoLove (to use Pico game inside the Love2D engine), but I needed to change a lot of things as it was too slow (sound, circle drawing ...).
Very funny game!
Hello! I would love to localize this game into Brazilian Portuguese.
Please let me know if you are interested. :)
Thank you for the idea, I appreciate your support. Right now, I don't really have the time to start a project like that. But it would be great, so I will keep it in mind. There is not that many text so it could be doable with a bit of work.
Very fun, well done.
This was a really great game. It has a lot of replayability, it's fun and challenging at the same time. Good job.
Done. Linked to itch and twitter account also. Sent you the link on twitter
The gameplay concept of this game is something i've never seen before. Very unique.
Awesome game. Would love to embed it on my site ozogames if possible?
Thank you. Yeah you can embed it on your site as long as there is attribution, and a link to this page.
Really nice game, bring me memories of the mini games from Side Pocket from the Snes.
This is such an enjoyable game. There's ton of polish on the presentation, and the controls feel good!
This is WOW
