Here is my second game made in PICO-8...
Arrow keys to move.
X - Shoot
Z - Special Shot when blue bar is full
Destroying enemies yields pickups:
Red Orb - +Health
Blue Orb - +Special Bar
Pod Ship - Adds one then a second pod ship to your arsenal
Make it through the wave of enemies to fight the boss for each level!
Have fun and thanks for playing!! :D
Updated build of this shooter game I've been working on. Pretty new to Pico and I'm still learning. :)
There are 3 levels, bosses, upgrades to your ship, and a special shot if you fill up the special bar.
There is some music, more tunes to come!
I followed Dylan Bennet's Lunar Lander tutorial from the Pico-8 gamedev zine and kept plussing it.
After launch, try to land the craft on the pad before your fuel runs out.
Edit v1.1: Fixed the palette swap so that it no longer triggers a psychedelic experience. Increased the required speed threshold to land on the pad by just a bit.
