Hey guys! This is my first Pico8 submission. I'm hoping it will motivate me to work more on it. I'm trying to port the classic shmup Gradius to Pico8. I'll likely run out of room, but if I can get the first level in playable, I'll be happy.

I'm concentrating on accuracy. Currently there is no real gameplay. I worked on the ship animation, parallax scrolling, and spent far too much time on the music. Next thing to do is enemies so we can actually shoot some things.

Hope you enjoy this prototype and lemme know any feedback!

Welp, I made Contra and now you're making Gradius! Have I started a Konami Renaissance?
