A tribute/demake of the jump-rope mini-game from Super Mario Odyssey, made for Tweet Tweet Jam 3.

Press Z to jump.

PICO-8 source code:

```h=0

poke(0x5f2c,3)function _update60()

end
```

And the same code again in expanded, commented explain-o-vision.

```--declaring our variables
h=0    // the Height of the rope
d=1    // the rope's current Direction (1 or -1)
s=0.2  // the rope's Speed
j=0    // the player's Jump height - 0 means they're on the ground
t=0    // the Top score
p=0    // the Player's current score
--aliasing some function names to save space later on
l=line
w=rectfill
--switching to lo-res mode
poke(0x5f2c,3)
--our main loop!
function _update60()
--first we move the rope - by multiplying the rope speed (s) by
--the current rope direction (d) and adding it to the current height (h)
h+=d*s
--if the rope's height (h) is more than 12 then it's the top of its travel
--so we set its direction (d) to -1 (i.e. travelling down)
if (h>12) d=-1
--if the rope's height (h) is less than 0 then it's at its low point
--so we set its direction (d) to 1 (i.e. travelling up)
if (h<0)then
d=1
--additionally, if the player is standing on the ground when the rope
--is at its low point, then the player has hit the rope and the
-- game is over..
if j==0 then
--...so we reset the player (p) score to zero,
--and we set the rope speed (s) back to its original .2
p=0s=.2
else
--but if the player is jumping when the rope is at its low point,
--we add one to their score (p) and increase the rope speed (s) by .01
p+=1s+=.01
--and if the top score (t) is now lower than the player's score (p)
--then we update the high score
if (t<p)then t=p end
end
end
--PLAYER INPUT
--if the player is currently on the ground (j=0), we check if the player
--pressed the button; if they did, we set their jump height to 5 (j=5+)
if j==0 then
if (btnp(�������)) j=5
end
--and if the player is currently jumping, we decrease their jump height (j)
--by .2 each frame until they are back on the ground
j=max(j-.2,0)
--DRAWING THE GRAPHICS
--(usually done separately in the _draw() function,
--but for TweetTweetJam we put it in _update60() to save space)
--clear the screen
cls()
--draw two rectangles to represent the sky/grass
w(0,13,63,50,3)
w(0,13,63,41,12)
--draw the two people holding the rope
?"웃",4,37,13
?"웃",52,37,13
--if the rope is travelling up, draw it in gray behind the player
if (d>=1) r(h,6)
--draw the player
x(j)
--if the rope is travelling down, draw it in white in front of the player
if (d<1) r(h,7)
-- and finally, print the scores at the top
print(p,13,16,10)
print(t,46,16,10)
--and that's it!
end
--OR IS IT?
--a couple of extra functions written to save space
--the 'r' function draws the rope with a given height (z) and color (y)
function r(z,y)
l(10,41-z,52,41-z,y)
end
--the 'x' function draws the player at height (z)
function x(z)
--first draw the body in dark blue
?"웃",28,37-z,1
--then draw the head in a caucasian skin colour
?"😐",28,33-z,15
--then draw four red lines to form the shape of a hat
l(29,33-z,33,33-z,8)
l(27,32-z,35,32-z,8)
l(27,31-z,35,31-z,8)
l(28,30-z,34,30-z,8)
--and finally, draw a single brown line to make a mustache
w(29,35-z,33,36-z,5)
end
