That's pretty cool. I like that you use letter keys to attack the certain trolls.
Only thing that took me a minute to realize was that the trolls only move when I do. Felt kind of weird to just jump around randomly until a troll got close. Maybe if there was a fast-forward button that sped things up until a troll was within first range or something...I dig it.
Wow - what a great forum :D I so rarely get comments on my games, this is lovely ^^ When I'm back in France I will definitely have a look at all yours!
@morningtoast: a lot of people had trouble figuring out exactly what the "danger zone" of spears is - really it's just a bunch of dot products and distance calculations and even I can't always tell what it will hit. Given a bit more time I think I'd rehash the system into something a lot simpler. You're right about the trolls at the bottom of the screen too: probably better to have time advance automatically until at least one is high up enough to hit. I also think the bodies block out the screen a bit too much and hide important information.
@Felice: yeah, I actually only just realised I could update an existing cartridge - sorry, still a complete Pico-8 noob ^^"
