SPOILER (GAME GUIDE)


The attacks has patterns, try run away first and see what the pattern is!

First attack

Stand slightly off center to the enemy, and you won't be hit while still be able to hit the enemy

Second attack

There is 2 + attack and 3 x attack in that sequence. Its easier to avoid the + then attack during the x

Third attack

There is 2 vertical attack followed by 1 horizontal attack. Try to time it and it should be pretty easy

Changelog:

  • added shake
  • added multi health bar for better readability
  • player now has 60% more hp to reduce difficulty

My first pico8 game, getting my feet wet.
Still working on the balance, uploading it so I can playtest on the phone.

I added some guide, does this make it easier?

Nice gameplay, but the first couple of times I wasn't sure if I was even hitting, until I realize how little of the health bar moves. I wonder if a longer boss bar could make it feel a bit more satisfying, as the effect of each attack could be more visible? Or some other visual cue to help seeing the boss is taking damage.

Too hard for me, @jerryliuoft. I think the best I could take away was 10% of the boss's health before I expired.

And I agree with @katiusza, perhaps something like this.

Oops, I only uploaded new version, but forgot to publish it. It should be much easier now.
I've been looking at doing damage display on the screen to show hit, I'm still playing around how to make the display look nice.

Just found this by accident and had a blast with it. Having a contest with my friends who can beat it the fastest lol. Super hard but I got it down after a few tries... nice work!

My best recorded time as of my editing of this message is 49.96 seconds from title screen start to ending cutscene!
