Super awesome mini shmup! Must've been fun to work on :)

Very nice little game. I really like the art style and the different patterns as gun fire. In my opinion the ship could be move faster.

Keep on and have fun :-)

It feels like you threw Recca and Aleste into the blender and made a puree out of it. It's beautiful

Thank you for playing, I did a test with a faster ship and I like it. I'll add it in the 1.1 version.


Thank you, I played a lot of Recca. I'm not real familiar with Aleste, I'll have to check it out.

Nice game, @Yopenatal. Gold star work !

I see you are using large numbers not part of Pico-8. I wrote a few programs in the past to handle this.


It's my hopes that future Pico-8 can truly work with 100% accurate 64-digit integers and 64-digit decimal places - possibly via strings.

P#116427 2022-08-28 21:46


Thanks for playing, that sounds very possible with the new version of Pico-8. I'll being adding that to my to-do list.
