I am a first year Japanese university student exploring game design.
This is my first time using pico-8.
I got inspired by Gradius.
This is a Shooting Game.
I would appreciate any constructive comments.
Sorry for my poor English.
The Earth is attacked by alien.
But aliens can't be watched by rader.
So you must explore with your own body.
Please kill these aliens!
Move. You are limited by edge of window.
Z Key(O Button)
Shot. Your bullet is strengthened by getting Power Item.
This game may not be for beginner.
It is slightly difficult for you.
It has 3 Stages. You have to advance without a break.
There are strong enemies in the end of each of stage.
You can go to next stage after destroying strong enemy.
Please enjoy Star★Eater !!!
Thank you very much!
your English is already pretty impressive. There are some typos but considering that it's for game design I'll not go into detail.
As for game design, at one point during the strong enemy battle, the enemy went off screen and then shortly after I died, and it wasn't very clear what happened.
Other than that, the game design is very on point
I saw a lot of other posts today that also said they were in a Japanese University. I find it very interesting that PICO-8 is being used for education.
Also, upon seeing all of the other entries, this one is the best I have played, it seems like you put a lot of effort and thought into making this, so good job!
