I'm interested to see if I maybe went too far with the difficulty on some of the later stages. During testing, I was able to complete each individual stage without losing a life, but doing all 20 in one session will be quite the challenge!</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=39889 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=39889 Sun, 11 Oct 2020 21:32:04 UTC Pico-Tron v1.1 <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=81121#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_picotron-1.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=81121#p"> Pico-Tron v1.1</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=44894"> timeandspace</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=81121#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="/media/44894/stg8.gif" alt="" /> <h2>WARNING!</h2> <p>Stage 21 contains full-screen strobe effects. </p> <h2>About</h2> <p>Pico-Tron is my second Pico-8 game, and is an homage to the arcade classic Robotron, with a few extra twists added.
