Vitreous is an arcade shoot-em-up made in PICO-8.
This game was created during a weekend game jam held by Warwick Game Design Society and LevelUp UK. The theme was "arcade", and games made for this jam will be showcased in an arcade to raise money for Special Effect.
The game jam's fundraising page can be found here.
Use the arrow keys and the Z or X keys to control the game.
Travel through all the zones to defeat the three bosses. Each loop through the game will get faster, so good luck. Collect 7 powerup objects to increase your weapon level. If you get hit, your weapon level will decrease by one. If you haven't got an upgrade to your weapon level, you will lose a life and need to restart the current zone. You will get an extra life for every 20,000 points you collect.
Nice one! I like the graphics a lot, the speed that makes it possible to dodge a shot then come back to get a powerup, the breadth suggested by the choice of warp zones.
It could be nice to be allowed to move up and down, even for just a few rows, to allow for more complex movement. But if you feel that would change the game too much or make it too easy, all right!
