I wanted to try out physics in PICO-8, so I made this!
A short minigame about landing a spacecraft on a planet.
Use left and right to move sideways, and circle to use your main engine.
There is also a brief tutorial to let you get used to the controls.
I'll release this on itch.io soon!
- V1.0 - Initial release
- V1.1 - Made landing transition smoother, score no longer counts on collision
Surprisingly challenging, @megabyte112 ! I like the deep-space preparation in the 2nd stage. Really nice ! Gold star work.
I was about to code my lunar lander game and did a search of what was already done.
So far this is the most interesting one; even though the terrain is flat and based on the landing approach/maneuver... but you know what it was fun and very challenging.
Well done tweaking it till the successful landing is quite tight (fuel/speed/thrust usage).
I like it ⭐
