Ghost Punch: an endless ghost punching arcade!
First "full" game I've made! Just discovered PICO-8 today in about 10 hours while deciding to join the GDL May 2018 jam (https://itch.io/jam/gdl-may-jam). I grew up playing a lot of River City Ransom esque beat-em-ups, but since this was my first project i wasn't confident to make a traditional side-scrolling beat-em-up game quite yet. I was also inspired by how "good" it feels to charge and release Doomfist's punch in Overwatch, so I lifted that mechanic over here.
It was super fun to make everything from scratch, from art to music (music is soo hard, even though I can hum something it's so hard to transcribe to the Pico music system for me).
I lifted some code for the screen fading from Gist @smallfx (https://gist.github.com/smallfx/c46645b7279e7d64ec37), and other various snippets like camera shaking from the BBS here. Thanks everyone for sharing your work :)
