This is cool. Looks so much like an Atari 2600. It reminds me of Phoenix and there is a great Pico version: https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=44727

Doh! You wrote that too!!

Pretty faithful to original, @pahammond. I have the original here, I'm playing it now. Let me compare.

A few things. The splash explosion on the ground of the player NOT being hit, which is not in the original, is a bit distracting.

The original game would let you hold down the firing button and you could shoot automatically.

Your shot is faster than the original, that makes your game a bit easier than the original.

Other than that a nice Pico-8 edition. And yes this was one of my favorite Atari 2600 cartridges.

Cool! Played it on a Atari 2600 long time ago. Great work!

Great recreation! I actually have a cartridge of this same game (for the Atari VCS) that I still play, and it is quite accurate!

Edit: my best score right now is 950! those darn orange things that undergo mitosis when you shoot them screwed me over!

Edit #2: 1090! Woohoo! I can't stop playing this!
