Controls are:
Up to speed up
Down to slow down
Left to rotate left
Right to rotate right
X to fire
Z to auto-land
Don't kill the cow!
Blue with pink wings are allies, while Pink with blue wings are enemies.
You have limited ammo, so you need to land to refill and get your HP up.
All weapons can only hit enemies, no friendly fire. This includes bombs from bombers.

Please report any bugs or tweaks I need to fix/incorporate.

Credit goes to the Sopwith team for their amazing and still fun game I love and play, Bombsight Games, witch I also love to play their Pocket Squadron game as a bomber(I can hit multiple enemy planes with one bomb!) and my brother Finn, who redrew the menu art.

P.S. you can install Sopwith on most Linux machines by running:
sudo apt-get install sopwith
and the PocketSquadron Website:

fun! I remember playing Sopwith in DOS back in the day :) (and the SDL version is even better!)

I like how you've simplified the turning and made the plane auto-flip. It seems like a good way to simplify the controls for PICO-8 :)

Yes, I thought the controls on the original weren't thought out the most, with the barrel rolling changing the rotation direction. While that is a bit more realistic it made going left much harder than right.

Whole lot of sound pounding going on. Not sure who's shooting - what they shot - and what shot them in return.

Maybe just SFX for the player ?

not having bombs is a major flaw. If i were you i'd make z to drop bombs and make landing by manually controlling plane.

Fun game! I remember playing a similar thing in a museum.
