REWOB. Delay the inevitable destruction of animal shaped planets long enough for its inhabitants to escape! Standard PICO-8 controls. X or Z to shoot. UP/DOWN to thrust. LEFT/RIGHT to steer. P/ENTER to open the PICO-8 pause menu and reset your save progress. Wob means your death count, because why not?

Made in 72 hours for ludum dare #50. Polish was added the week after the jam ended based on feedback from people playing the game. If you want to play the original submission, that's here:

I'm not entirely sure what I do in here or how to interpret the score, @alanxoc3.

I shoot things but they do not seem to be affected.

So, A description would be nice...

Sorry, I accidentally uploaded a broken version last night. I fixed it this morning. And I will have one more update today with actual level design. We were definitely rushing at the end of the ludum dare time limit. I'll add a better description with that last update.

EDIT: The fix I did when I wrote this post was still broken in a different way. But now the game is complete.

@dw817 & @sacredlion

I've updated the game and description. Thanks for playing originally and I hope you'll be able to play again as it's a complete game now.

OK the Chasers are hard as hell to kill, @alanxoc3. You can see them right on the screen and unload everything you have at them for seconds and they might blow up.

In level 1 at least I would make it so anyone can pick up this game and get through the first level with no difficulty. After that, yeah, start to ramp the difficulty.

@dw817. It was intentional to make bullets weak. I updated the description with more details on the gameplay.

It's usually easier to hit a chaser once, then let it ram into another chaser/asteroid/black hole to kill it, instead of killing it from just bullets.

If I had more time, I agree that there could have been a tutorial level though.

We updated this game again with level progression, a few engine tweaks, and a few easier levels at the beginning. Hopefully it isn't too difficult to get started with now, though there are still harder levels if you get far enough.
