A little mod for Jusiv's game "I Just Wanna Land" because that's the first thing that came to my mind while playing it.

This mod is made by me.
Original game made by Jusiv.
Balloon Fight (C) 1985 Nintendo.

I like the refit. Given that it's based on Balloon Fight, I think it gets even more fun if you remove the "friction" that slows the player down, so they maintain their momentum and bounce around like a pinball -- just like in Balloon Fight.

Credit to @Jusiv for writing very readable and modifiable code -- it's as simple as changing a single value to zero, and thanks to the organization it took about one minute to find.

Oh neat, definitely didn't expect to see a mod of something I made. Perhaps ironically I'm actually completely unfamiliar with the original Balloon Fight (aside from knowing it exists), but the fact that balloons are now positive definitely threw me off for a second. :P
Nice touch recreating the original character sprite in the ending screen!

@PicoLate Hey, thank you! Don't think I've ever gotten a comment like that about my code before.
The air resistance-less one is an interesting take but the final level in particular was definitely not designed to handle that.

Also, to both of you: When making a mod for a game with saved data (in this case, the highscores) you should probably change the id set with cartdata() so it won't overwrite the original game's save for people using the PICO-8 application.
