Alpha Strike Deluxe is a shoot-em-up in the classic NES style. Shoot your way through 5 levels, destroy everything that moves and save the world from danger. It's a remake of my 2016 game Alpha Strike, now with better code, silky smooth 60FPS and swanky graphical effects!


  • no more grid! Every object in the game moves smoothly and isn't bound to the grid now!
  • separate scores and lives for both players!
  • graphical improvements! New sprites for all enemies, some terrain sprites, and swanky graphical effects like trails and explosions! No more 8x8 explosions and tiny spaceship trails!
  • balance fixes! The difficulty curve is now smoother and the game is a bit easier (but not too easy!)
  • that new-fangled fancy 60FPS thing you apparently wanted! Back in the 90s, everyone was happy with 30FPS and no one complained!


Pico-8 D-Pad/arrow keys - move ship
Pico-8 (X) button/X key - shoot bullets


Every 10000 points net you an extra life.
Collect powerups to enhance your weapon.
When you die, you lose your weapon.
When you get a game over, you can use one of the two continues you have.


Use only if you want to ruin your fun! Those are the same as in the original Alpha Strike.

Enter those at title screen.
U,R,D,D - invincibility
U,D,D,R - full power
L,U,D,D,R - 10 lives
R,R,L,U - 99 continues
U,L,U - stage 2
U,L,L - stage 3
U,L,D - stage 4
U,L,R - stage 5

V0.31 of the game.

A tiny demake of the PC Atak Marsjanów games (available at atakmarsjanów.cba.pl) that is mostly inspired by the third game, made by one of the original authors.

Run and shoot Martians in this epic 8-stage adventure to kill the Dark Nebulla Twins!
Listen to arrangements of Polish pop music! (coming soon!)
Beat 8 different stages in different environments!
Save the world from Martians!

The cousin that gave me ideas and wrote the plotline for the original games wasn't involved with this, so please treat this as a non-canon Gaiden Game.

Shoot down paratroopers before they explode your cannon!
Frantic arcade action with increasing difficulty.
Made for the CGA JAM on Itch.io.

Z to shoot left
left arrow to shoot upwards-left
up arrow to shoot up
right arrow to shoot upwards-right
X to shoot right

Inspired by games:

  • Paratrooper (Greg Kuperberg, DOS)
  • Typing School (some unknown chinese pirates, NES/Educational Computer famiclone)

to clarify - used themes are History Repeats (it's a remake mashup thing of two old games) and Gravity (paratroopers fall from the sky, and dropping them on others plays a big role here)

fun fact: this was supposed to be a typing game but pico doesn't have a keyboard

An arcade-ready remix of Mountains of Demise 2.
Difficulty has been balanced for maximum "arcadeness" (and profit if you really want to put it in your arcade).
Among differences from the original game are:

  • intro loops
  • Time for an Epic Quest (title theme) replaced with Mountains of Demise 3's title theme
  • coin system
  • no passwords
  • option to disable continues
  • service menu

To insert a coin, use the Tab key.
To access the service menu, use the Q key.

Original game below:

“A babe, a stogie, and a bottle of Jack. That's what I need right now.”
Duke mused on his recent defeat of the Rigelatins, his voice raspy even in his thoughts. After single-handedly saving Earth -again- he was ready for a long period of lying the hell down.

“And no more freakin' aliens.”

Just then, a white-hot plasmatic blast punched through the hull of his cruiser. Klaxons flared, warning lights flashed, and static filled his monitors. He flipped on his comm.

“Hey, anybody out there? I got a little probl...” Duke started.
“Mayday! Mayday!” the radio replied. “Los Angeles is under attack! There are aliens everywhere, and they've mutated the LAPD. Is anyone there? We need help!--”. The transmission went silent.

"Great," Duke grumbled as his careening ship missed a skyscraper. "What's the problem with all these aliens attacking Earth anyway? How many alien races have to get their asses kicked?"
Duke slammed his fist into the waiting eject button.

"I guess one more."

So, this is an extensive mod of Star Beast by electricgryphon.
It adds ammo, music, and changes almost everything to be Duke Nukem themed.
What I have to say - just have fun! Because of Pico-8 limits the Doom-style original can't be recreated.

First, a little backstory. Before I made stuff like The Mini-Man, I've tried to make a game about climbing a mountain. A simple platformer. Nothing special. At least the 2009 version wasn't special. The 2010 version had a poorly implemented climbing mechanic. In 2012, when Mega Mountain was released on Glorious Trainwrecks, I've decided to clone that game and wrote the more important stuff in the original design doc. Now I've remade the game and it plays like it was supposed to play. You climb a mountain to rescue your girl (yeah, pretty simple plot...), avoid fireballs and spikes and climb vines. Have fun!

Version 1.2:

  • Changed the climbing mechanics to be like in Mountains of Demise II
  • Fixed the most unfair sections

Version 1.1:

  • Changed the climbing mechanics to be more like Mega Mountain
  • Fixed the dodgy fireball hitbox to be more tolerable
  • Made the game even harder
