My first pico-8 game, for jam #2. It's a shmup inspired by Ikaruga and Everyday Shooter. If you play, post your high score!

arrows move
Z and X change color and shoot

You can shoot an explosion with the opposite color to slow it down and make it stay around longer. The idea is to make it possible to set off a chain and then try to keep explosions worth more points around a bit longer to keep a chain worth a lot of points going.

I just fallen off my chair because of the death sound!

Ahem, it's an interesting concept, and a fun game to play, maybe less flashy graphics would be nice!

Unusual shooter I like it but my brain hurt a bit when I play it for too long :)

Nice shooter! I included it in my Pico-8 Jam #2 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look :)
