I made this for a 48-hour game jam hosted by Worcester Polytechnic Institute's Game Development Club. The theme was either tarot cards in general, or to take three specific tarot cards and design the game off of them. I opted for the latter, and ended up making a boss rush shmup.
Due to time limitations I wasn't able to add sounds or music, and backgrounds are basically nonexistent, but aside from that the game is pretty much completely done.
Can you defy your fate?
- Left + Right: Move
- Z/C: Shoot
- X: Dash
Hey, thanks for playing!
I've only actually beaten it once myself so that's definitely an achievement!
And yeah the moon has a lot going on with probably a bit too much rng (especially with the claws). It was also definitely a weird card to try to translate into a fight in the first place due to its bizarre assortment of elements.
This is a good shooter but has anyone made a game in PICO-8 similar to THIS ?
Which is originally what I thought this cart was about.
