Oh, this is a fantastic achievement. I've enjoyed seeing the GIFs of it on Twitter but missed that it actually released!

This is one of those Pico-8 games where the devs really went the extra mile when it came to polish and presentation. Even just the title screen is lovely. The split-screen multiplayer is quite impressive, even aesthetically.

Well, this is going right to my favorites, where I keep all the Pico-8 games that meet such a high standard of quality. I imagine the Christmas release date has everyone busy, so this hasn't yet gotten as much attention as it deserves, but hopefully that'll change!

I love Rodyle! He's pretty fun to play as, and I love the weapons he has.

Impressive! Your pretty good. Do you have any cool events while playing this game to share? I like to hold accelerate to after passing the finish line so I can get a good rocket shot.
