In the slime pit there's no escape, only death!
Kill as many slimes as you can before they get you.
[x] to sword attack
[z] when the bar on top of the hero is full to explode all the slimes on screen
This is my first Pico-8 game, I started with a few other more ambitious ideas but I wanted to finalize something simpler and faster. Feedback is welcome. If there's interest I might expand on this idea in the future with more enemy types, boss fights, etc.
Nice! Fun. Easy to get into, nice sprites. (some of the music channels could use some volume tweaks imo)
At first it looked like things would get boring. Then the (quicker?) red spawns happened, and after a bit the stunlock on attacking seemed to take longer than a spawn under my feet. (after which I was quickly dead)
So definitely no escape. Lived up to advertising.
Thanks for the good words, guys!
@tyroney: I really should mix the music with a headset, I was probably using the laptop's speakers when I wrote it. IIRC there's the green, red, blue and later on yellow slimes. Also, there's no stun, if you hit the blue one's at the wrong time, you're dead. Pay close attention to when they shake, that's their telegraph.
