ZEPTON is a 2d voxel shmup by REZ.


You have to survive as long as possible to an always increasing number of enemies.


how to play

on title screen, use Z/X, C/V or N/M to start a new game.
to pause game and access option menu, press P or return.

key control:
→ arrows: move your spaceship (you can invert y-axis in the pause menu)
→ Z/C/N: launch missile (if the target "lock" is red, the missile will go automatically on it)
→ X/V/M: fire bullets (your bullets will hit something if the target is red)
→ Z+X / C+V / N+M: ©LASER BEAM OF DOOM™ (pump spaceship energy, do not abuse!)

mouse control:
→ cursor move: move your spaceship
→ left button: fire bullets
→ right button: launch missile
→ left+right button: ©LASER BEAM OF DOOM™


0.9.2 update:
→ a brand new and deadly weapon! the mighty ©LASER BEAM OF DOOM™
→ full mouse support! now you can get rid of the keyboard to play
→ even more code optimizations, now the game run mostly at 60fps!

0.9.1 update:
→ you can be a real pilot and choose to invert y-axis (option in the pause menu)
→ code size and speed optimizations (i removed almost all COLOR() calls!)

there is some tokens free, i will try to add some feature later if possible.

feel free to report me any bugs!

Great stuff, congrats!

PS. That title music/screen is INSANELY good! :D

awesomee!! runs a bit slow in browser but great on native. i think the background colours are a bit too busy, but it's epic!

thank you for your nice comments!

btw, here is my hiscore table :D

P#38227 2017-03-13 20:26


This might be the most impressive game I've seen so far!

P#38241 2017-03-14 03:08


\o/ \o/ Very nice! And even some comments in the source ;) . Did you do the music as well as the code, or is this another Rez+Dubmood? It's great music either way!

P#38291 2017-03-16 12:42


this is so beautifully made, I'm so amazed!

P#38292 2017-03-16 14:03


@cxw: no, this time I did everything myself, including the (short) music :D

@tepuitrouble & @9tk: many thanks ♥

P#38295 2017-03-16 17:47


This is just unbelievable. Congrats :)

P#38449 2017-03-20 10:36


Technically great ! So impressive

P#38610 2017-03-23 09:43


@MCNanana: I hope it's well playable too :D

I know it's a bit hard to handle at beginning, I did my best to make targeting easier as possible, but generally "3d" shoot'em up are harder than 2d ones :)

:: updated to version 0.9.1!

now you can be a real pilot and choose to invert y-axis (option in the pause menu) :D

also I optimized code size and speed by removing almost all COLOR() calls! I just noticed yesterday that you can give the color number as parameters directly in all the graphical functions :3

Makes awesome game using voxels
and 3D effects on Pico-8 heavily.

(Insert meme image here)

Didn't noticed the color parameter
on the drawing functions that
heavily used to render those.

@CassettteAudio: woooohooo! \(•◡•)/

never did a better score than that :D

btw, next update of the game will be very nice :D

P#39055 2017-04-03 18:15


I just submited 0.9.2 version with mouse control (to select in pause menu) and the deadly ©LASER BEAM OF DOOM™ \(•◡•)/

Wow this is a great game! It is so impressive and gives me tons of ideas for the game I am currently working on--599 Pound Life (my first Pico game).

I am not very good at shooting or jumping or moving games, but I was able to score 11 points after playing for half an hour because of the intuitive controls and layout. I love the design of the city scape and the consistent color for the alien attackers. I hope to see more of the game as my skills improve.
