Four Fingers of Death 👊

A rock-paper-scissors video game in a street fighter like evoirment? Yes, that is a stupid idea and I love stupid ideas. I made this little game in PICO-8 in one day so no damage is done and not much energy was wasted.

It turns out it is very accessible since you only need one finger to play it and you got all the time in the world to decide what you want to do next.

It's further accessible even without the need to press any keys at all: If you find someone to start the game and activate auto-battle for you.

Right now it's only playable here on Itch but I will release the PICO-8 cart image in the future.

I plan to update the game further. Here's my to-do list:

- adding a score system.
- adding victory quotes. ✅
- adding stuff like messages for flawless victory, come back, etc. 
- adding fatalities. Just kidding.

How to play

Press C to start game.

Press left arrow, down arrow or right arrow to choose your weapon: rock, paper, scissors respectively.

Press C while in an active game to turn auto-battle on/off.

Where can I play it

Play it right here in the browser at the top of the screen.
Or download the cart and play it in your PICO-8 fantasy console.
Or search for "four fingers" in Splore of your PICO-8 fantasy console.
