Note: I got into a situation where skeleton and mob keep avoiding each other (level 2) as they can't fight when turning!

Outstanding game! Could have been a classic cart release!

One of the best Pico-8 games. Nicely done.

Btw - looking at the code, there is a lot of tokens you can reclaim (if you are in need).
For ex:

function make_actor(x, y)
 return add(actor,{
 x = x,
 y = y,
 still = false,
 state = "idle",
 life = 1,
 dx = 0,
 dy = 0,
 targ = 1,
 flp = false,
    spd = 0.07,
 inertia = 0.6,
 bounce = 0.4,
 chest = false,
 w = 0.4,
 a = 0.4

is 20 tokens less than your construct.
You can also remove ()'s in most of the if/then constructs.

You also have a very token heavy image decompression code for a single image.
You can use that alternative: https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=34363 for a fraction of the token cost.

@bigjus. So I made your wish come true! I have added more life potions through the game to make it easier.
