I tinkered with this a long time ago when I was first learning pico8 but decided to update and release it!</p> <p>Features:</p> <ul> <li>A turbo button (X) which adds a speed boost and faster shooting, but quickly drains score. Useful for getting out of dangerous situations!</li> <li>Gain an extra 15 seconds of time per 500 points</li> <li>Diagonal player movement</li> <li>A new 'DASHR' enemy is added which dashes forward quickly in short bursts.</li> <li>Green Squid enemy: it shoots faster but has a shorter bullet range. No shield, less HP.</li> <li>Orange Guard enemy: less shield</li> <li>Enemies spawn in a semi-ordered and proportional fashion with some randomization.</li> <li>A multiplier / enemy counter on the HUD</li> <li>A fix for player 2 so they maintain direction while shooting</li> </ul> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=142008 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=142008 Sun, 28 Apr 2024 16:50:46 UTC Fractured Rogue <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=60424#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_fractured_rogue_wip-15.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=60424#p"> Fractured_Rogue 1.6</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=14346"> Xanthus</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=60424#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>This is a roguelite that takes place in a universe that is being fractured, you must survive 10 areas and waves of enemies to hop through portals until you reach a place that is protected!</p> <p>Features include:<br /> -destructible walls<br /> -environmental hazards (fires, water, spider webs, pits)<br /> -29 enemies (with varying abilities/features)<br /> -25 items/spells<br /> -3 basic player classes (with 2 clothing styles and 8 different pallets). </p> <p>Portals will appear that will take you to the next area. Enemy portals will pop up after a while, spawning more enemies as the area becomes more fractured, forcing you to move on. Pick up potions and new skills that will help you survive and go through 10 areas. </p> <p>Z - Open / Close Menu , Cancel<br /> X - Select menu option<br /> Arrow keys - move , Attack (when moving into enemies)</p> <p>Let me know what you think! </p> <p>8/27/21 update: accidentally removed the water generation, so it's re-added :D. Attack animations, require a little more xp for levels, and maybe a couple of other smaller things.<br /> 8/22/21 update: There is now a fog of war, different level generation, enemies get harder the further you get now, and other various tweaks!<br /> 7/1/21 update: Added basic movement transition (looks MUCH better now), Removed wait command<br /> 2/27/20 update: Various tweaks, added some new enemies and spells. Officially done with this cart! (at least for now)<br /> 2/23/20 update: Fixed bugs, added a few items / features. Almost ready to tie a bow on this game after polishing a tiny bit more.</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=32735 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=32735 Sat, 29 Dec 2018 15:22:17 UTC Unifiying flying object <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=42407#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico42488.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=42407#p"> Unifiying flying object 1.0</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=14346"> Xanthus</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=42407#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>Made this for the Fantasy console jam.
