I like where this is going.

I missed the initial release - keep up the work!

Soooooo, because of the current fixed spawn locations, I found that the particles can slam the memory pretty hard :P

I should probably fix that >.>

The only real bit remaining before polish is to make some music and sound effects :)

And maaaaybe an update to the AI...maybe ;P

Neat! I am "areana hazard", not sure how I should take it :)

This is really great. Would love to see it on a bigger screen. Maybe you can shrink the graphics to half size for pico8?

P#53592 2018-06-15 20:33


Arena Hazard is 7 enemies destroyed I think? ;P

And I probably won't shrink the graphics down, if only because I'm doing map-based collision, and the bikes are already about as small as I can make them and maintain the aesthetic.

I might change up the radar to be more diegetic tho. And possibly swap out the manual Lance recharge with a boost mechanic. Right now, the red enemies feel kinda unfair when you're below them :shrug:

I am calling this one complete :3

This legitimately makes my first completed hobby gamedev project since I started programming 18 years ago XD

P#53637 2018-06-17 20:42


Really cool game. Lightsaber-Lances! Lightlances? What are those things anyway? :-P

After figuring out the trick I went from "cannon fodder" to "godling" rank immediately.

Unlike the original Joust game you can just stay exactly at the ceiling height forever, which is the most advantageous position. The only reason to move is because the AI gets stuck :)
