Remember DSiWare? Did you try Mario Clock once?

Coming from random Pixelcraftian's tweets, here's my clone of it made on PICO-8!

This is a fan game made for Pixecraftian. Not affiliated with Nintendo (definitely) nor Pixelcraftian (probably?).

The time won't leave you anywhere with Pixel Clock! Use any PC or other compatible devices as an interactive clock complete with a colorful scrolling background, inspired by several games. What's more - you can make Pixel jump, bash some blocks and collect coins!

"You'll find yourself thinking "Just a few more coins..." in no time!" - totally not from Mario Clock description

Note: Does not include alarm functions (yet?)

Install instructions

Linux user may need to "chmod +x pixel_clock" 

Mac user would need to "chmod +x foo.app/Contents/MacOS/pixel_clock"

PICO-8 cart can only be used within PICO-8 WITHOUT DISTRIBUTING IT ANYWHERE ELSE.

How did you get the time?

Thanks!

PICO-8 includes stat() function allowing to get some extra values, including time!

“A PICO-8 cart can access the current time of day, in the host system’s local time zone:

stat(90) -> year, e.g. 2018 stat(91) -> month of year, 1-12 stat(92) -> day of month, 1-31 stat(93) -> hour of day, 0-23 stat(94) -> minute of hour, 0-59 stat(95) -> second, 0-61 (usually 0-59, see note below) A corresponding set of values, but in UTC time, are available at stat(80) through stat(85).” - https://pico-8.fandom.com/wiki/Stat (PICO-8 Wikia)

Additionally, getting week day uses special formula you can find on my Twitter somewhere!
