Yessss! Ever since PICO-8 came out I've dreamed of a Pengo remake, very excited to see a good one!

I'd enjoy a smidge of control tuning. I feel like I'm getting stuck on corners a bit, probably because I have to wait until I'm in the next tile before my next input is accepted. Same for a push: I'm not allowed to move until the cube I've pushed has made it all the way to a stop, so nearby enemies have an edge. Making these cases more flexible probably belies the original game, which I don't recall being as fast to begin with and may not have needed such game feel tweaks. :)

Great work!

Great version! Really enjoyed it. The enemies do seem to have an edge on you though especially when it speeds us.

Thanks for all the kind comments. I did a fair bit of tuning of the player/ bee speeds based on the arcade version but also what felt "right" to me. I personally haven't had any issues with the controls but that's probably because I've play tested it a lot!

One of the best Pengo ports I've ever seen - fast, slick, tuneful and rock-hard. Brilliant.

Really nice! A bit fast, for me, but I suppose it gives it a more modern feel. Well done
