My entry for the MMAJam Halloween themed jam - eMonstery.
Did you know that Halloween was Valentine's day for monsters? As the first ever human employee of eMonstery, the largest monster dating service, its up to you to try and make sure that no monsters go lonely on this special day!

Made this for a friend, its probably the most annoying pico8 cart ever made :P
I put this together for a game I'm working on, but I thought it might be useful to folks as a standalone cart. The code is clearly segregated between the demo and the actual high score code, so should be easy to lift and shift, or feel free to adapt as you like.
To try the demo: left and right increase/decrease the score, up checks the score against the high score table and switches to score entry if your score is high enough.
Haven't needed to worry too much about token counts yet - its not a huge amount of code as it is, but I might optimise it a bit more in the future, but I don't want to impact the readability.
