Arrows to move
Z to shoot forward.
X to shoot backward.


  • Kinda WIP. It's got a bit of playability, I guess.
  • Music sucks. Can a composer help me?
  • Not sure how faithful to the source material I want to be.

Heh, this is pretty rad already. (If you wanted to get really sassy about twin-stick you could use the player two dpad controls for the shooting direction, though that feels a bit hacky and in any case I like the idea of having to deal with the limited forward/backward variant as a gameplay change.

In Llamatron on Atari ST, the action button was used to lock fire direction. Then you can walk one way and fire the way you have chosen.

just a thought...

looking good though!

@joshmillard I was thinking of doing that.
@matt That might be a little harder to code, but it would be a nice touch.

I might be able to make you some smash tv music depending on how far you'd wanna take this project.

It's not going to be a complete clone of the game down to the pixel, just a simple homage to the original.
If you decide to do so, that's great!

Uhh what happened to the game? It's redirecting to https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/cposts/1/cpost16476.txt now. Which is a 404 error page.

Fixed it!

Why only one star for this game? It's a pretty awesome demake.

Thanks for reminding me about this, I should probably work on it soon.

Hey, ur cool and stuff, but it´s kinda shit being too poor to BUY an Copy of PICO-8. Y' know, the people behind this put lot of work into it, and its just crap to steal their work.
