Spacetank 9000
It is the year 9000
Blow up aliens
Get crate boxes
You are powerful and good

Scorched Earth meets Super Crate Box
There are chain reaction explosions because everything in the game explodes
I plan on adding more weapons and enemies. Enjoy!

-different control scheme
-more gradual difficulty curve
-made some weapons a bit easier to hit with :)
-fixed some wonky hitboxes

-Just straight up totally hard crashes pico 8 for some reason sometimes? I have no idea why, maybe has something to do with sfx?
-Will probably run out of memory if you get too far?

The controls are a bit tricky for me--it would be okay if the action weren't quite so frantic, but with the death ray on my tail, remembering to hold down the button 2 to move instead of aim is more than my finger brains can handle.

P#21719 2016-05-30 00:56 ( Edited 2016-05-30 04:56)

Thanks for the input! I tried a new control scheme and a few other changes :)

Prety nice game, I like the graphic style, everything explode and shake. You have way too many life, I got very far without understanding anything at first. I wish you had a control on the location of the tank, maybe just a jump button. It would be useful to avoid weapond you dont want, as some of them are pretty hard to use. Keep up the good work.

Scorched Earth meets Super Crate Box?

I thought it was more Worms meets Moon Patrol. Fun times. :)

Thanks for the input everyone!

You can avoid getting weapons if you want, but the only way you can get points is by picking up the crates :)

So frenetic, so enjoyable.
I loved the physics of the little tank, how it jump off every bump!
Congrats :)

REALLY enjoyed this.

Made it to 30 and it was pretty manic.

Will spend more time with this and try to discover the finer points of the gameplay!

Sooooo coool. I love it.

The slopes felt a little out-of-control. It'd be nice if they were toned down a little bit.

P#21830 2016-05-30 16:54 ( Edited 2016-05-30 20:54)

I agree the slopes are a bit drastic. I've tried to tweak the values here and there but I think I just need to come up with a more clever level gen script at some point :)

P#21840 2016-05-30 19:36 ( Edited 2016-05-30 23:36)

i love this :D
sick gfx and great feel with the projectile physics

P#21847 2016-05-30 20:38 ( Edited 2016-05-31 00:38)

Nice! This felt like a blast from the past with tons of polish. Just needs some music now!

P#21858 2016-05-31 00:21 ( Edited 2016-05-31 04:21)

This is so good!! I LOVE the visual style! The gameplay is fun but I agree with the others that the difficulty should be tweaked. tbh just put a lot more enemies in there and it should do. I do think the controls work well enough however!

P#22165 2016-06-03 04:33 ( Edited 2016-06-03 08:33)

Thanks everyone!
I'm planning on adding more stuff and tweaking the gameplay once the p8jam voting is over, so keep an eye out :)

P#22346 2016-06-05 11:20 ( Edited 2016-06-05 15:20)

This game is incredible and it's now my favourite thing.

P#22350 2016-06-05 13:29 ( Edited 2016-06-05 17:29)

Very interesting game, we did a whole article about it in our #p8jam2 coverage, be sure to check it out here:

P#22411 2016-06-06 11:44 ( Edited 2016-06-06 15:44)

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

P#23232 2016-06-19 14:43 ( Edited 2016-06-19 18:43)

A really fun game, plus so much flashy eye candy!

P#25197 2016-07-12 15:15 ( Edited 2016-07-12 19:15)

Excellent feel! Simple controls but extremely satisfying to play.

P#44199 2017-09-14 22:20 ( Edited 2017-09-15 02:20)

preferred this version to the easy modded one

P#45368 2017-10-20 21:25 ( Edited 2017-10-21 01:25)

It's great!

Nice indeed ! Would like to see this on a Vectrex.

This is one of the flipping best games I've seen in a while, and I think that the slight uncontrollability is a good thing, making it so that you kind of have to go with the flow, adapting to whatever weapon mutation you have. The plot builds up what would look like a thought-out plan, while it's really just sending in one weapon unit and seeing what happens at the end, which makes a thin sheen of levity, adding on to the already fun gameplay.
