My first game and post on the PICO-8 BBS! And it's a late entry for my first game jam! It might not get judged, but I had fun making this game over the week :)

It's a Space Invaders clone, controls are in-game.


  • When reading ambiguous times, err on the earlier date.
  • Plan carefully! The annoying sound bug when rebounding off the left wall was due to an unchecked error earlier on.
  • Time management was an issue: I had more things going on this week than I expected, and most time I did have I spent trying to correct the sound bug, working on enemy AI and procrastinating.

I had some other game ideas that didn't pan out, like a puzzle game that relied on rotating the TV to find clues, which I might revisit some other time.

Challenging, well made little game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Tiny TV Jam games, if you’d like to take a look :)

Challenging, I feel like there should be a more distinct reward for beating levels.

Good implementation of Space Monsters. I like how you included the UFO :)

Please do that puzzle game you mentioned -- sounds very interesting!

The game doesn't work. It says

Booting Cartridge...
Syntax Error Line 377 (Tab 0)

Unclosed Do
