1k Programs

I love writing games in the 1k format, it really forces you to keep everything super simple. Here’s some of the best ones I’ve made so far, most were entered into js1k.

1Keys – A tiny piano with 4 instruments. Winner of JS1024 2020!

Queen’s Gambit – A mashup of Robotron:2018 and chess! I was amazed that this was able to fit in 1k, though I had to use every trick in the book, and invent some new ones. Placed 18th in JS1k 2019.

The Digit Dilemma – A crazy hard original puzzle game with randomly generated levels. Placed 16th in JS1k 2019.

ZzFX 1K – The original ZzFX. A zmall open zource zound fx maker for your java zcript gamez. Placed 25th in JS1k 2019.

MinBytes – A full 8 track bytebeat album with music and visualizer. Also on YouTube.

Free Cell 1k – Freecell solitaire with cool randomly generated card art in 1k. Placed 56th in JS1k 2019.

Infinite Yin Yangs – Based on my Shadertoy shader but minified and wrapped in JavaScript using WebGL. Placed 41st in JS1k 2019.

Tiny Ski – Secret tip, in almost any Frank Engine game, you can type ski into the console and play a game very similar to this. I based the JavaScript version off of that. Placed 31st in JS1k 2019.

Tweet Size Programs

I also make even smaller JavaScript programs, so small they can fit in a 140 character tweet!
