After a week of programming I'm happy to release Mars Defender.

It's my first game for PICO 8.

5 waves of attack will keep you occupied for about 10-15 minutes.

Your mission: Destroy all the aliens and save your men.

Keyboard controls:

Start game with x

Navigate ship with cursor keys.

x = fire
z = Go to intro page after game over.

Or use our favorite controller.

The gamecontrols are too sensitive on my mobile phone, I would play this on a PC.

Hello all

New here.

I just started with PICO-8 and learning LUA 2 days ago.

I made a demo of Mars defender... Code needs cleanup and I'm not finished yet but it works pretty well for the time being.

Hope you like it! :)

UPDATE 04.03.2022: Release version 0.9. Changed year (yep we're indeed in 2022 :D) and created an endboss. Fixed various bits and bugs. Game is small with only 5 but I don't see the point in going for 100 waves.
UPDATE 24.02.2022: Changed the name. A few tweaks and bugfixes, faster response, graphics and particle explosions.
Worked on various game mechanics, player energy and collision, AI for the Aliens etc.
