PicoCyberbank is a cyberpunk remake of West Bank / Bank Panic by Damien Hostin, on twitter yourykiki (The Lurking Engine)

Goal :

you must help the bank collect the credchips by shooting the baddies and survive 9 days ! Beware some people are not as they seem to be at first !

Controls - keyboard or gamepad :

Use arrows to shoot left center or right
Use button 1 (x) or 2 (c) to change the doors you are looking

Behind the scene

This project was less complicated than Brutal Pico Race, I designed it to work with my kids... But actually, it was way too complicated for my little beginners, and they gave up after coding the open/close system for the doors :D It is also why there is a lot of functions in french. They came back for beta testing !

I keep some interesting parts for myself, such as the plasma doors, using the PX8 compression and a coroutine queue to load people graphics at runtime, a bunch of sprite picked up randomly to build the people, and little hidden surprises on the intro scene to reflect how far you went in the game !

Once again, great thanks to the pico 8 community !

Have fun !

I played it and loved it! RIP several of my potential customers :P

But the game starts at day 9? eh??

Ooops ! Fixed ! ;D

Nice simple game and effective graphics (door effect is indeed very good - though I much prefer blast door types ;)

You really should fix gameplay to enforce good behavior: shooting good customers has no effect!
If that’s a game you made with your kids, tstst!

For the doors, I tried to make something like Half-Life 2 force fields.

Actually there is an effect for killing good customers, -50 an score :D :D Not so punishing, I agree

In the originals games you lose a life. I hesitate a long time before removing this in the port... Instead of a life count, we think about a health bar, items drop by some customers to get some life back, temporary shield for us or good customers, hints to reveal hesitating customers intentions, extra credchip on some peoples...

But I finally decided to finish it quickly (and go for a new 3D-ish thing... :D)

I will ship an update with +2 lifes, and -1 life for killing a wrong customer

I didn't mention it before, but you get an extra life every 1000 points

Updated, shooting on good people now cost a life
