This game was created in less than a week as my AP US History final project. It's also my first released Pico-8 game. I used the following program as a basis for the movement system: https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=27626

The game features Teddy Roosevelt as the player character, who was elected in 1901, fighting a bear labeled J.P. Morgan. Morgan was the first person "busted" by Teddy's Sherman Anti-Trust act. This act was not designed to break up all monopolies, but only the ones that Teddy considered bad for the American people. Furthermore, the bad trusts being depicted as a bear that Teddy had to fight was a common trope in political cartoons of the time. Teddy also carries around a big stick in my game, as reference to his "Big Stick Diplomacy", which was to be very polite and diplomatic, but also to be militarily strong enough that no one would try to anger you.
