Source code

It's on Github!

I'm not proud of the code, this grew up from a prototype. I'll do OOP next time I swear!


This is our first actual complete pico-8 game. We had a lot of fun making this and having friends playtest.

Hey nice game. The limited angles makes the game difficult and those enemies shoot fast. I like it, thanks for sharing!

Well done - with some difficulty ramp up and power ups to boot!
Same as previous comments, fixed angles makes the game a bit odd to play but that can be understood as part of the gameplay.
