The enlisted have arrived! Properly trained! Will follow commands just as you tell them. No stupid ideas! The war will be won by following chain of command! Let's conquer that hill...
This is my third Pico-8 game, loosely inspired by Lemmings. You are in charge of guiding a squad of marines to capture and bring back the enemy flag. They will only do what you tell them, for better or worse...
This is a mouse cursor game, but you can also use the virtual mouse cursor with the keyboard controls. It is possible to finish all missions without losing a single marine, but that will require some precision maneuvering and luck.
My previous Pico-8 games are Picopolis (2017) and It takes four to party (2017).
Changes in 1.1
- Added a hover to more clearly show which obeyling you are commanding
- Added a ladder preview to help placing ladders
- Added a crate puzzle to mission 3
- Minor tweak to mission 5 to fix flag getting stuck in the wall
- Updated puzzle on mission 9 to guide players away from hopelessly trying the wrong solution... kinda :)
Here are some hints to the different missions.
Very cool indeed.
Nice spin on a Lemmings-like mechanic. 🤓👍
Okay, as a Lemmings fan, this game is fantastic.
You know Jeb, you should consider making video games for a living. ;>
Thanks for all the nice comments!
@HeyNetters well... with 400 people working on Minecraft I still need my own little corner to play with :)
@Happysplats13 Thank you! I ended up not using your other song partly because I wasn't sure how to copy it and partly because I realized I needed to learn how to use the music tools myself :)
If you want to try to make a night tune, I suppose the theme I'm going for is marching band drums and tuba? Night tunes could be more calm though?
@jeb Yeah for sure! Should hear back from me in a couple of days! I have a couple ideas, should be a bit longer and i'll actually post it in the comments so it should be easy to copy it. Excited! :D
Thank you @Happysplats13 !
I think this song feels a little bit "random" in notes and I'm worried that it will be too distracting from the game. Maybe try to find some smoother melodies?
oh yikes... Ok well criticism is welcomed, Ill see if I can get some buddies of mine or something to see if they can help me out a bit. Was there any specific part that you found distracting or was it just the entire thing in general?
Sorry, I didn't intend to sound harsh. I'm not very good at making music myself, so I'm not very good at giving pointers, either =)
I won't be able to do anything this weekend, but maybe later I can see if I can make an edit to explain what I mean.
I appreciate the help!
