I created Paperboy Droid in a weekend for At0mium's POT-AU-JEU Game Jam on the theme: Make something new with something old! Paperboy Droid is a remake of Paperboy by Tiger Electronics. This is the first game my dad gave me when I was little. I completely changed the mechanics of the game: you have to program a droid that will play for you by performing the actions of your program. I created the game alone during the game jam weekend, without using prefabricated elements.

You can download the game for Windows, Mac, Linux or play in your browser. The game is played only with the mouse. Feel free to send me feedback by posting a comment!

Very nice game! This would be great for teaching someone about creating a game, I also liked the retro vibe to it and it was very enjoyable :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)

Thank you very much! I’m happy that you enjoyed the game :D. The source code of the game is available here if you or anyone need it in order to teach: https://github.com/picnic/PICO-8.

I never heard of GDWC but it seems to be a great idea!

Oh that's great! :D
