Put this together based on another project (https://github.com/PROGRAM-IX/vectorwars). No sprites used whatsoever, all content is generated procedurally and drawn every frame. I love this kind of game, but thought it might be a little heavy for PICO-8. Apparently not, at least in this small version. I'll probably play more with this for other more complex games.

Very cool. I've been trying to figure out to draw shapes without sprites. If these are generated/random then that's even better!

Combine this with some rotating and you can do just about anything!

Thanks for sharing...gonna do my best learn from this one.

@morningtoast Thanks for the kind words! It is 100% possible and doable, although some of the code in this game might not be the best from a style or efficiency point of view, I'm confident you could make most kinds of basic arcade games with this base.

Let me know if you have any trouble with it, I've been working on other games with vector sprites instead of bitmap sprites.
