A tiny Metroidvania-like Platformer/Jump'n Run. Your Goal: Find the legendary "Cup of Hope". Through the Game you'll gain Powerups which will help you to find new ways and avoid Enemies...

WARNING: This Game is difficult. If you're not a Fan of Jump'n Run-like Games, I think it will be too frustrating^^. There are still Checkpoints basically everywhere, but it's still not easy to beat that Game. Expect to die a lot while playing this...


Programmed in PICO8 by "zep". Music by PICO8-User "Gruber". "Borrowed" some Code from PICO8-User "Krystman" and Youtube-User "Dev Quest".

Behind the Scenes

Fantastic game! Fun platforming, just the right amount of challenge. The art was really nice, effective at conveying objects, and was a great use of limited resources. Great integrated level design, gave a sense of exploration and felt natural and not arbitrary.
27:14, 98 deaths.

Nice game! 36:58 and 182 deaths. Lots to explore. I like the variety in the gameplay - quite a few different challenges and you really feel like you're exploring the map, especially the way you get to come back to some of the same rooms and view them in a different way. Really nice job with the graphics and sound. Felt like an authentic retro experience - loved it.

Good retro game, challenging and yet calming
