A carefully crafted Pico-8 demake of Rareware's ZX Spectrum classic, lost in space and with only your blaster to protect yourself, you must collect all pieces of your spaceship, fuel it up and escape as soon as possible
-Main game and most music/graphics by myself, Coffee Bat
-In-game song 3 by the outstanding Blameitontherobot
-Original game by the amazing Ultimate/Rare
-A couple of ideas and the main inspiration to make this game thanks to Asobitech and their amazing Super Jetpak DX
This is such a fun game - and so close to the original in look and feel - TOP JOB :-)
I love it - although I used to play the chunkier VIC-20 version. I don't recall there being a timer but it is a welcome addition.
@Miez colour clash would be incredible although @CoffeeBat has really captured the look and feel of the Spectrum
Really great conversion. I forsee myself spending quite a long time playing this...
Playing this on a handheld device with the raspberry pi build, I can't pick up a fuel tank after the first fuel tank. There's no problem playing on the PC or here in the browser, though! Love this game, I come back to it fairly often.
The game is very good and the music is legendary, @CoffeeBat !
I noticed that if you are standing on top of the rocket before the last piece hits, the rocket's top part stays white but launches anyways.
If you want to add some variety, you could have a 2nd level where the current rocketship is shrunk down visibly and shoots down a mess of incoming asteroids or something before picking another planet to recover pieces on.
That is up to you, though. The game is great the way it is. Gold star work.
