A work in progress game I'm uploading for the sake of feedback. It's quite unfinished, and ends at the first planned boss (not actually implemented yet, sadly.)
Arrow Keys to move/jump
Z to use selected weapon
X to change selected weapon
Please let me know what you think.
I really love the almost atari style dungeon room jumping. I loved playing thru it and it definitly has room to expand. I love the mood and aesthetic the surroundings set. Cant wait to see what the end product will be. Keep working! this has potential!
@Skulhhead1924: Good eye! Those are definitely inspirations. I love Cave Story and Kero Blaster, and I'm pleased my game draws parallels to them!
@FrogFace420: Thank you for playing! I really appreciate your support.
This is sick! Really cool stuff. Love the sound effects, especially the "thud" sound when you land.
One minor thing: I kept on pressing Z/O instead of Up for jumping. That might just be the Mario Maker muscle memory, haha.
@nucleartide: I'm glad the sound effects fit! I have a difficult time with the audio side of Pico-8, so hearing that it works is nice. I agree that jumping being tied to the d-pad instead of a button can be confusing sometimes. It's times like these I wish Pico-8 had more buttons haha.
