I'm still getting to grips with Voxatron, but I had fun making this game. It's a simple score attack thing where you pilot this little blob around the screen, dodging the big lasers. Score points by scooting through the lasers while they charge, before they fire. But you're better safe than sorry if you're not sure you can make it!

Voxatron is funny because it feels Big compared to PICO-8, and also limited in an interestingly different way. I keep wanting to use the 'whole screen' in fullscreen but I can't, because I only have the voxel screen. I need to work on adjusting the camera better. Anyway nothing too exciting here but it's another game!

Z: start game

Interesting idea. Very fun arcade game. It's a shame the game doesn't go on forever. Anyways great job!

@TechGeek_YT Hey, thanks for playing! It would be easy enough to make it go on forever, I just prefer to have games like this be short and sweet to increase the chance people play them. :) You could download the code yourself and just change the game over check. Maybe in future I'll add an 'infinite mode' to my timed score attack games.

Thanks for the notice on that link as well, I always forget whether it needs the quotes or not!
