A match-3 game made in Pico-8.


  • Left, Right, Down: move blocks
  • Up: drop block
  • X, C: rotate left and right

Blue, green, red, and orange blocks of the same color match horizontally and vertically. Black blocks are "locked," and randomly take on a color once a block touching them clears.

Very cool!  My best score was 40 points.  Hope the Pico-8 discussion earlier this month was useful.

Yeah, the discussion helped quite a bit--it was basically my intro to the topic.

Looks like you ran into a bug since your screen isn't filled. If you moved a piece left or right at the wrong time, it would trigger game over (since I test for loss by checking if a block is being applied to a space that already has a block). That should be fixed now.

Nice.  I know dropping block games are more complex to develop then they look.  I created a Tetris/SimCity hybrid years ago.
