Welcome to my first Pico-8 project.

It's based on an idea I had ages ago and have continually failed to finish.

Right now it's basically a super simple gameplay prototype.

Use the arrow keys to move the blue dude around and push the pink "boulders" to crush the green "monsters".

Good luck.

Gonna spend some time giving it a bit of character now. Animations and the like.


Player and enemies now have animation.
Enemies collide with each other, it's a bit janky right now though.


Rocks can be pushed multiple times!

Known Issues:

Enemy collision is a bit weird.
Sometimes rocks can spawn where rocks already are and this causes problems.
Framerate seems to take a dive when so many rocks are on screen.

Nice, getting as many enemies as possible lined up for a boulder roll is fun. My max so far is 4 enemies with 1 boulder.

Once the screen starts filling up with boulders I ran into issues with some enemies being trapped inside rings of "used" boulders with no way out, so they couldn't get me and I couldn't get them.

I've just made a change (back to a less terrible version of how the game used to treat rocks) that makes them pushable multiple times which should fix problems like that.
