Canyon Crisis

Made in 2 weeks for #LOWREZJAM 2023!
By @Jammigans, Mothense, and @fletch_pico

Play as a cowboy amidst an alien invasion! Run through an endless canyon, saving cows, shooting aliens, and trying to stay alive in the canyon heat!


  • Arrows – Move character / change menu option
  • C – Fire gun / select menu option / restart level
  • P – Open PICO-8 cartridge menu
    (within PICO-8 menu) arrow keys & ENTER to navigate menu

Game Features

  • Stamina system! The bar on the right indicates how tired you are from the canyon heat! You lose stamina every second just from how hot it is. Additionally, taking a step or getting hurt by alien attacks also reduces your stamina. Pick up the pink orbs dropped by barrels or aliens to refresh yourself!
  • Ammo system! Your revolver can only hold 6 rounds at a time! Refill it by collecting ammo packs found on the ground or in barrels.
  • Rescue cows! Aliens are hungry for beef and will explode near cows! Run into cows to score points and put them safely in your pocket.
  • Endless canyon! As long as you can beat the heat, the canyon just keeps going!

Get that high score!

Challenge yourself to survive as long as possible and rack up those points! Take a screenshot of your results and brag to your friends about how awesome you are.
