This is my first "real" PICO-8 project. It's a demake of a kind of obscure puzzle game called Deadly Rooms of Death, or DROD. (Can you guess what the P stands for now?)
The controls are a little strange, since in DROD you can move in all 8 directions, plus two buttons to turn your sword.
When you press (O), you move in the direction that the D-pad is held down in (If you're holding up and left, you'll move up-left)
When you press (X), your sword will turn either clockwise if you hold right, or counter-clockwise if you hold left.
There is barely anything done on this, but I thought I might as well post it here to get community feedback! I don't know any of the "best practices" when it comes to PICO-8, so please don't hesitate to tell me anything.
