amazing game! i just don´t like the thing of u have a limited time but anyways is a amazing! :D

Thanks for the compliment! Fair criticism as well. The timer does make it difficult, but that was intentional. I myself have only completed it twice :)

oh i guess that make sense but anyways good idea :D

Does the pico-8 cart download include the lost levels?

Sorry for the late reply. No, Not currently but if you are interested I can add it to the downloads. It probably should have been included.

Yes please.

Me gusto mucho el jueguito!! me gusto mucho la música!!! PERO ME HIZO RENEGAR COMO UN CAMPEON!! :D

Thanks for playing. Glad you like some of it :D. It is difficult.

A fun little game. Loved the retro music.

Thanks for playing.

Pretty fun game

Thanks For sharing and playing.

Fun concept, I like the idea of using the pits to loop around to the top of the level and reach other areas. I couldn't really clear level 5 though, all the enemies were dead. I assumed you had to kill the blocks that fall too but I couldn't jump on or bomb them.

Thanks. You should be able to clear 5 by using the the other enemies to take them out. Bombs should work as well.

Oh okay, guess I just sucked lol

Very cute! Hitting myself with a bomb gives me a penalty, and that's reasonable, but at the moment it also seems to cause every subsequent bomb I throw to instantly penalize me, meaning I get a five second penalty for every single shot, which I don't think was the intention. Nice little game though, I dig it. :)

This was a lot of fun! If you don't mind me asking, what all did you use to make this game? Like game engine and such.

Hey Zachary, thanks for giving the game a try. It was done in Pico-8. You can learn all you need to about it here : https://www.lexaloffle.com/pic...

Oh wow. That's awesome!

Smash "X" to activate the machine gun :D Awesome game! How long does it takes to make something like this?

Thanks. Happy you liked it. It was almost a month of work in total.
