It is my take on Worm Whomper by Tom Loughry on the Intellivision. I have included an Intellivision mode that gets a bit closer to the classic graphics.</p> <h2>Gameplay</h2> <p>Defend your corn from an onslaught of hungry pests!</p> <h2>Controls</h2> <ul> <li>Move with direction keys </li> <li>Z for plow ball</li> <li>X to shoot</li> </ul> <p>If you lose your gun grab a new one from the barn.</p> <p>I am not a game artist, musician, or developer. As such, the code in this game is filled with redundancies, magic numbers, and is wildly optimized. I have a lot to do, but it is (mostly) playable for the limited effort I was able to put in while simultaneously trying to learn all the things. I had a blast getting this far, I learned a ton and can't wait to revisit Pico-8 in an upcoming week.</p> <p>Thanks!</p> Sun, 27 Feb 2022 22:06:56 UTC
