PicOXO

Made in 557 chars of Pico-8 for the TweetTweetJam 4.

Tic-tac-toe. You know the rules. Try to align 3 blue squares or prevent the computer to align its red squares.

Use right arrow to move, X to play. Press ENTER and "Reset cart" to restart.

Made as a personal challenge after wondering for some time: "Would it be possible to make a human vs CPU Tic-Tac-Toe in 560 chars or less?". That's what happens after watching Wargames too much.

Here's the complete code, just copy & paste in Pico-8 to get the whole game:

function u(n,i)e=n%8*2sset(q[e],q[e+1],i or 8)end
q={6,1,6,2,6,2,7,2,8,1,8,0,8,0,7}l=1palt(0,sset(1,7,8)==1)p=0::_::i=0o=p cls(1)if btnp(5)then
