XKCD is an amazing web comic at http://xkcd.com licensed under Creative Commons (Non-commercial clause).

For the PICO-1K JAM. I wanted to see how well these comics could adapt to a ultra-minimal constraints:

  • whole program under 1024 characters (including encoded 1-bit images and text)
  • 64x64 resolution


Full code (1019 chars):

function z(x,y,w,h,s)for b=0,w*h-1 do
pset(x+b%w,y+b/w,((ord(s,b/8+1)&(1<<b%8))>>b%8)*7)end
color(0)end
function w()
while(btn()==0)flip()
while(btn()!=0)flip()
cls(7)end

This is SO COOL! 🤩👌
Very impressive that you got several classic comics stacked inside a 1K entry (one or two would've already been impressive).
Neat entry! 👍
