Beware! Aliens have invaded earth! Of course - we are the aliens...

On behalf of High Commander XL'ARGH - you have been tasked to fetch the puny humans for our gruesome experiments etc. The mothership is too valuable to risk for close quarters operations. Therefore we dispatch you - our great minion T'URD with smaller crafts to capture specimens with your tractor beam and carry them upwards into thinner atmosphere so that they can be collected by the mothership. Beware that the ship will lose movement speed when you activate the tractor beam with holding down your big ACTION BUTTON. Good luck, and break a tentacle!

First Pico-8 cart - it has been really fun, but has taken way too long :P Love the limitations, even for code and LUA subset. Hope you enjoy it for some levels at least :)

Changes (1.01)
- Reduced number of levels in cycle as they were too simple, ramp up difficulty much faster
- Cycle BG each level
