This Is my first of hopefully many pico-8 games. Its a 2-4 player fighting platformer.

It is the year 5,000,000,000 AD. The last remnants of humanity are on a narrow rocket ship crashing into the sun. The same sun that swallowed up the earth millennia ago upon expanding into a red giant.

Now is your chance. Be the last man, even if just for a moment. SUPER KILL EACH OTHER.

Arrows move left and right and climb ladders.
(x) Jumps
(o) Punches

Don't fall into the fire. Make sure the other players fall into the fire.

The platforms will sink faster and faster until all but one player has died.

The rounds continue until only one player has lives left.

You start with 3 lives, but you can get more by punching other players into the fire.

These are the things that look like eyes. They aren't active until they start flashing. Once they start flashing you can pick them up.
There are two types:

  • ALPHA (red) You're alpha as heck. Nobody pushes you around, chad. You don't move very fast though.
  • BETA (blue) You are much more nimble, but you can't stand your ground. Also, girls won't talk to you.

Aww, glad to hear it :)

Do you have it rigged up with controllers?

Yes, playing it on a raspberry pi that auto boots into pico8. It supports three physical controllers and keyboard :)

I tweeted a video of my two boys playing it on the weekend. They were so noisy I was worried they were killing each other for real!
