I challenged myself to complete a creative project every week for the rest of 2022, and this week was Pico-8.

For this week I decided to tackle a favorite infinite waves-of-enemies survival title from my childhood. It is my take on Worm Whomper by Tom Loughry on the Intellivision. I have included an Intellivision mode that gets a bit closer to the classic graphics.


Defend your corn from an onslaught of hungry pests!


  • Move with direction keys
  • Z for plow ball
  • X to shoot

If you lose your gun grab a new one from the barn.

I am not a game artist, musician, or developer. As such, the code in this game is filled with redundancies, magic numbers, and is wildly optimized. I have a lot to do, but it is (mostly) playable for the limited effort I was able to put in while simultaneously trying to learn all the things. I had a blast getting this far, I learned a ton and can't wait to revisit Pico-8 in an upcoming week.

Very good and intensive shooting game, @Tragus. I am impressed. Normally I have helpful suggestions for a game yet unlike some other carts your game here is perfect just the way it is.

I wouldn't change a thing. Love it. Gold star work. Your first one in fact.
