THE BALLZ ARE LAVA!
"Nobody knows why - it's just always been this way. Our chance of survival is to absorb all the Green Orbs floating around, while avoiding certain death by touching the Lava - all before the time runs out!"
My entry to the #FC_JAM that came 2nd Place, where the theme was "Union".

Aww, thanks Roy - glad u liked it :D
I think I released this before u started playing with Pico-8.
(TBH, I'd almost forgotten I'd made it myself!)
But then I remembered that I always thought it might be interesting to make a "HD" version, with crisp, modern graphics and sound. So, now I've started... ;o)
