Pocket Garden is slow-play, low-interaction, screen-saver game. It is a game for dreamers, grinders, slackers and thinkers.

You do not have to do anything. The garden will grow by itself.

However, if you want, you can occasionally tend your garden using the A button. If you time this carefully, this will revitalise it so you can enjoy it for longer.

You can use the up and down keys to speed-up and slow-down time. You can use the left and right keys to change the view. There's even a fancy plot that shows how well your garden is doing. However, you can ignore it if you wish.

Do whatever you like, it's your garden. Sit back and relax.

Features

  • Four layers of Conway's Life running at 30 FPS
  • Additional decay and mutation background processes
  • Sound effects that reflect how well your garden is doing
  • A plot that shows how well each layer is doing
  • Revive action with light effect feedback
  • Hi-score for interactive mode
  • Lo-score and hi-score for auto-play mode

History

Version 1.0 changes:

  • Add sound effects to flowers
  • Only generate sound effects for visible layers
  • Slowly ramp-up simulation speed
  • Only enable decay and mutation when layer is dying
  • Hide pop-up on key press

Poket Garden est un jeu à faible intensité similaire à un fond d'écran interractif. C'est un jeu pour glandouiller, rêver et passer le temps.

Vous n'avez rien à faire, le jardin pousse par lui-même.

Vous pouvez toutefois vous occuper du jardin de temps en temps en appuyant sur le bouton A. Si vous le faites au bon moment alors le jardin reprend vie et dure plus longtemps.

Les boutons haut et bas peuvent accélérer et ralentir le temps Les boutons gauche et droite permettent de changer la vue. Il y a même un panneau vous montrant l'état de votre jardin. Cependant vous êtes libre de l'ignorer.

Faites comme bon vous semble, c'est votre jardin. Asseyez-vous et détendez-vous.

Fonctionnalités

  • Quatre niveaux de Conway's Life à 30 FPS
  • Processus additionnels de détérioration et de mutation en arrière-plan
  • Effets sonores liés à l'état du jardin
  • Un panneau montrant l'état du jardin
  • Action régénératrice avec retour lumineux
  • Système de scoring interractif pour jeu actif et passif

Hi Jicehel. Thanks for sharing. I had not yet seen that. Unfortunately, that discussion was mostly in French, so I could not really follow it.

I am curious how that compares to what I have done as I forked the Gamebuino library and extended it with 4-track music synthesis capabilities (Music Demo - Gamebuino). This can play songs composed using the Pico-8 tracker.
