Our soldiers are outnumbered and outgunned, and the Kingdom's only hope for survival is your tactical ability and acumen. Command the troops yourself, and lead us to victory!</p> <p>My only advice to you would be about using terrain to your advantage - troops stationed on mountains shoot farther; troops in forests are shielded from enemy fire, to a degree; and troops in lakes and rivers move much slower.</p> <p>In battle, kill or rout all enemy troops to win. Make sure to keep your camp safe, try to sack the enemy general's camp, and try to not lose any troops, if you can - these additional objectives are optional, and exist for bragging rights only.</p> <p>Stay safe out there, and remember: this is only a test version!</p> <p>With best wishes,<br /> Prince D</p> <p>(This version only has first 3 levels)</p> Sun, 09 Jul 2023 23:15:46 UTC Rebel Commander <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=131732#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_rebel_commander-5.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=131732#p"> Rebel Commander</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=65435"> PrinceD</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=131732#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>The Galaxy is suffering under brutal reign of a mad tyrant, and all cower in fear of his doomsday weapon capable of vaporizing entire planets. But a brave rebel leader has arisen, to free the people or die trying.</p> <p>To win the game, strike at the tyrant's capital - the more ships you have, the better your odds of succeeding. 6 ships are a guaranteed victory, but even with 5 or 4 you have a decent chance.</p> <p>To get more ships, visit planets - their chance of giving you a new battleship are displayed as percentage. Planets with more than 50% chance are highlighted in blue. However, beware of occupied planets, highlighted in red - they are garrisoned by tyrant's warships, and will destroy one of your ships each time you arrive at one.</p> <p>After you move, two things happen: the tyrant vaporizes the planet you just left, and dispatches his minions to occupy another random planet. This means you should move both quickly and deliberately, to avoid getting cornered or cut off.</p> <p>There are special locations that can't be vaporized or occupied: </p> <ul> <li>Purple Nebulas hide your presence, and after you move into one, no new occupier fleet will appear.</li> <li>Golden Gateways are accessible from any point in the Galaxy, and can save you from a dead end.</li> <li>Green Wormholes teleport you to a random non-occupied planet - a risky, yet quick way of travel.</li> </ul> <p>Since Galaxy layouts, chances of help and final battle outcomes are randomized, not every battle can be won - but you can instantly start a new Galaxy by pressing Z/O. Good luck in your epic cosmic struggle against tyranny!</p> <p>This is an early version. Planned features:</p> <ul> <li>Sound/Music</li> <li>Jump animation for rebel fleet</li> <li>More unique locations</li> </ul> <p>Feedback is always welcome!</p> Fri, 07 Jul 2023 20:28:33 UTC Demon Blaster <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=119915#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_demonblaster-1.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=119915#p"> demonblaster</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=65435"> PrinceD</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=119915#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>The demons are coming!

Turns out, something broke down in the depths below the plant, radiation readings were off the charts, and now the whole city of Krakow was in danger of a nuclear disaster. Director has sent many brave souls to try and fix the problem, but none have returned. Janek nodded silently, grabbed his stuff (of which Director immediately confiscated all alcohol), and bravely descended into the darkness, like the true son of Poland he was...</p> <p>This is a simple roguelike about resource management. There are four resources:</p> <ul> <li>Alcohol makes Janek brave enough to fight monsters.</li> <li>Shovels are used to dig through soil.</li> <li>Gas masks protect Janek from radioactive gas.</li> <li>Batteries power the flashlight.</li> </ul> <p>The game is still early in development, and there is no ending yet - just try to guide poor Janek as far as you can. All I want to know at this point is whether the core mechanics are enjoyable or not.
