this is my first try at Pico8 with a simple shoot'm up
inspired by a submission to @pixelsweekly

Finally, i got back to 194-8 !
lots of new stuff in this build so i decided to jump to 1.0

-Arrows to move
-X to Fire
-C to shoot big Lazor (the bottomleft jauge replenish when you catch pink globe)

changelog 1.0:

  • lots of cleaning in the code (i'm sure a lot more can be done)
  • boss battle with intro, music & attack pattern
  • ennemies lifebar
  • catching yellow orb while already at full health will boost your main gun up to 4 times
  • lots of new ennemies and they now spawn in some pattern

  • the overall difficulty is ranked up

Nice! PICO 8 could use a rash of shmups, and this looks like a good start.

And now I've got the 1942 music stuck in my head.

P#12848 2015-08-21 08:21


Looks and feels really good!

P#12867 2015-08-21 19:24


Looking forward to this one. :D

Add ground troops (tanks, etc.) and make Z drop bombs with 3x3 (tiles) range of explosion.

P#12902 2015-08-22 19:23


My suggestion? Slow down scrolling just a bit and/or make enemies spawn higher up so there's a little more time to aim and shoot things, right now a lot of them are slipping past me.
It might also make things easier once you've added things that can hurt the player.

P#12921 2015-08-23 10:41


Thanks for the feedbacks and enthousiasm !

I've slowed the ennemies and made them spawn higher on the screen to make it easier but they'll still need real pattern instead of pure random :)

you can now kill everything on screen with "C" once you have filled the yellow jauge on the bottom left (it replenish slowly when you don't shoot)

and slowly adding other stuff :)

Nice! I really love the art in this game.

P#15717 2015-10-22 10:34


A late new update with modified secondary fire and splashscreen :)

P#15999 2015-10-29 12:27


Lots of basic change and fix in the 0.4
i promise i'll add Boss fight for the 0.5 !

here's a wip of the bad guy:

P#16605 2015-11-13 09:51


I like it! Those pixels are particularly nice.

P#16610 2015-11-13 13:40


After months of lazyness i finally update this one with the boss and lots of new changes.

I consider it done for now,
Hope you like it ;)

P#27052 2016-08-18 11:00


yeah, we sure like it! That's very well done!

P#27054 2016-08-18 15:52


Super fun, and great effects!

P#27057 2016-08-18 17:02


This is a really great effort. Very fun! I made it to level 3 on my 2nd run.

P#27089 2016-08-19 18:47


Fantastic game! Loads of fun :D

P#27245 2016-08-23 10:07


Thanks a lot !

P#27282 2016-08-24 04:43


Epic clone, fantastic music track! :D

P#27727 2016-08-30 17:26


Ships that don't blow up on the first hit ? Auggh ... It starts out pretty tough then.

And yes, epic soundtrack ! :D

P#27732 2016-08-30 18:49


Really like this one. Nice combination of 1942 and bullet hell shooting.

I did get a little confused as to how the power-ups worked though. Sometimes the yellow orbs restored health, other times, they upgraded the weapon and other times, did nothing. I'm sure I'm missing something there.

Anyway, I did a quick playthrough and made a video about it here:
