  • mouse/touch: swipe to navigate menus, steer ship with relative mouse hold movements
  • controller pad recommended.

Features

  • More than 4 billion bosses
  • 22 unlockable player ships
  • gazillions of bullets
  • a few lasers!
  • 3 game modes: normal, attract and permadeath
  • auto game save persistence between sessions (quit the game anytime)

As usual, please share your thoughts, comments and bug reports below. I truly appreciate everyone's feedback.

Also a big shout-out to my #pico8 bros on twitter for giving great ideas and suggestions as I was developing this one. You guys are awesome!

Wow, it is the best Pico 8 game I've ever seen! I'm just wondering how it can be made on Pico 8. The gameplay is quite boring sometimes but I've never seen anything more interesting on Pico 8.

Thanks for playing and for your comment, SWalrus!  Check out my other pico8 games, you might like them!
