Made this game for fun to learn Lua Programming Language.
My first game in Pico-8. My first game in Lua. One day challenge fun!
Made this in about 4 and half hours of my time. Although I am a seasonal programmer and also a Game Development Instructor in which my job requires me to make new Video Games on a daily basis. On average I have to make 3 mini-games a week. During summer up to 5 a week. It took me 10+ years to get to this point so please do not feel discouraged I used to suck at programming at one time.
I am used to huge languages like C++ and also C#/Java.
Analysis of Lua is that its a descent small language that can be learned entirely by a seasonal professional like me between 30-60 minutes. Its pretty amazing how awesome this language is how awesome Pico-8 is. I am impressed. C# takes about 5 years to master. C++ almost 9 years. This was not an easy task compared to Lua. It took me longer to learn Scratch (drag and drop programming is not quite there yet).
