My Pico-8 interpretation of the 1980 Gremlin/Sega arcade game and the various console ports.
How to Play
Shoot everything until you run out of bullets!

I actually bought the Atari 2600 cartridge of this game (shown above) about a month ago! I played the heck out of the Atari version back in my youth. It doesn't have the bonus round or the circus music, but it got pretty challenging after you'd been going for awhile. The bullet eating ducks would get faster and more frequent as you went along, and it got easier to accidentally shoot the bullet remover in the bonus area when things got frantic. I honestly would have never thought of this for PICO-8 either, but now that you've done it, I can't believe how well it fits!
