A shoot 'em up game by Yehiel Certner
This small game was made while going over the Lazy Dev Academy tutorial for building SHMUPS in the fantasy console Pico-8!
i highly recommend any aspiring developers and game maker hobbyist to go to their you tube channel and try their tutorials!
Lazy Devs Academy
Use the Up-Down-Left-Right arrows on the keyboard or the joystick to control the ship,
Use the button 1 to shoot Use the button 2 to explode a bomb
(Note! your pickups will be erased)
It's an old school SHMUP, kill the aliens avoid the aliens bullets :)
pick up the pickups for extra life (5 picks) or for bombs, also there's a special pickup for extra firepower
Super fun, good retro gameplay.
A few minor display bugs : Life counter goes offscreen when >10, message "press O to continue or X to Ex"... also goes offscreen. Y coordinate for point indicator when killing a "detatched" enemy often not showing where the enemy was killed.
High score should be displayed on title screen and game over screen. Seems it's only displayed when you beat it atm.
