My first (actual) game! I learned a lot from this tutorial before I just started figuring it out myself: https://ztiromoritz.github.io/pico-8-shooter/
Press x to shoot. Press z to clear all enemies in a wave with a bomb. Use the arrow keys to move.
Progress by clearing waves of aliens. The aliens's speed and number of rows increase as more waves are cleared.
TIPS: Don't worry about getting all of them in one go, they wrap back to the top of the screen.
Bombs are gained every 5 waves.
*Updated to fix an issue with a sprite incorrectly being used as a star. Improved the title text.
Nice and polished. I like the only two bullets on screen dynamic. I found the movement/aiming a little rough sometimes (I just couldnt get myself positioned correctly under an alien without a few back and forth futzes). The sound fx are nice (the music gets old after a bit but the rest of the sound is great). I really like the screen border, really nice looking.
