Hack all the terminals and defeat the boss.

This is my attempt at making a polished game in a week and a half, although it ended up being 2 weeks. I had to drop a few features I wanted to put in due to time, and code ended up getting a bit messy. Still, I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

The frame rate can drop sometimes, particularly in the later parts of the game when there are a lot of enemies around.

I mean... WOW. 👏🤩
I grew up loving Turrican II on the Amiga, and this scratches that itch too.

Excellent art, great sound, tough as nails.

This is now one of the best platformers on the console.

What may be a two week effort for you is definitely one of the best, most polished games on the platform. It's really fun, plays well, I really like it! Well done.

Beautifully handcrafted ! It's hard to believe this was done in 16-colors. Lush presentation. Superbly done. You definitely get my STAR.

This game needs to be listed with Pico-8's BEST OF THE BEST.

Turican area guy here as well - your take on it really honors both the legacy and our virtual console.
The polish and attention to detail is humbling.
Your are starting to be a good game brand!

It seems cool but I can't play it in my pico8. An error message saying "Future version. Please update" is displayed.

so many airborne tomatoes

@bul71 You may have an older version of Pico-8 installed. Make sure you've got v0.1.12c.

P#70388 2019-11-30 01:32

Very well done !

Nice game.
That base surely has a large fly infestation problem.
Still managed to hack all the computer and kill the boss.
Also good job!

just signed up so i can say this is one of the best games ive played on here for a long time , really special !

The game is legit, 100%. But I think there should be an option to reverse the buttons (shoot/jump). To me, it feels like they're backwards, and I can't really play it well as-is.

@BitwiseCreative, since you have Pico-8 yourself as seen from your successful button test program, in the main Pico-8 program, load up this game with:

load #xzero

Then in immediate mode type out KEYCONFIG and ENTER. Configure the keyboard the way you would like and RUN the game from there.

An enjoyable homage to Turrican. I did a video of this here:

It's hard to believe you're using the same 16 color palette as me. Nice work!

P#70644 2019-12-06 21:16

Really well done. That's impressive you got this working in a couple weeks.
