I'm just posting the first cartridge I was able to finish.
I started coding and picked up Lua like 20 days ago and also found out about Pico-8. I did some other tutorials and I've been reading about coding and all that, but this one is important to me since it was the first tutorial that I could actually understand what I was copying from the tutorial to Pico-8!
-- what I added
- Multiple enemies
- Multiple levels
- An ending
After finishing it, I added some extra features that I could code - after a lot of trial and error lol.
-- stuff that I ended up not adding because I don't know how to:
- An animation like a spaceship hyperdrive between levels (when monsters change). I tried to animate only the stars but well, didn't really work
- Enemies that would pop up from the sides and shoot more than one bullet in an arc.
- A little pause between each ship's shoot
If you decide to go through the code due to any reason and want to help on the above, that would be lovely.
Hope y'all have a great day, bye!
