Kid Orion is a short, twitchy, 5-level space exploration game inspired by Lunar Lander and Solar Jetman. Find the landing pad to advance levels, but don't run out of fuel or health! Beware the Space Ram! Features music by Mark DeNardo. Excellent faux box art by Jacob Smiley.


Left and Right Arrows: Tilt Ship

Z: Fire Cannon (once obtained)

Comments welcome! Post your score if you win! I make other games and weird stuff at ROBYSOFT

This is a reeeaaally great game! It's not that original but it doesn't matter. Congratulations! And by the way... that artwork you made is just superb.

Aw, that was awesome! I think I got a score of around 50790? My score is gone alright so I might be off, but my ranking was Star of Stars! (I always love ranking systems like that)

I liked the level progression here, the little twists in each stage, and little details like the various huzzahs you get as your score counts down each level. The music that plays when your health is low is great - it makes me wish that some sort of music were playing all the time.

(and the cover art is rad, you should make a boxed copy :D)

I like the game, but the gravity/lander games were never my forte...and I love the box artwork!

Any chance of Jacob Smiley sharing the .psd file for the borders? Basically the boxart without the artwork for Kid Orion. We could adapt it as a 2nd/3rd party packaging for Pico-8.
