Cave Chopper

By Xanthus Published on Aug 25th, 2016 Last updated on Sep 22nd, 2016

Remade a game for the pico8 that I made a long time ago. Explore the cave, try to survive and collect everything before your fuel runs out! Beware of enemies, land on all the different colored flags to refuel and collect the golden cup to win. Avoid bumping into walls or the ceiling: it will rapidly deplete fuel for crashing.

Let me know what you all think!

Left/Right - Guide Helicopter / Select Helicopter on Intro screen
Z - Fly up
X - Shoot
Up/Down - Can aim rockets upward or downward

Unlock more helicopters at 2000,3000, and 4000 high score. This is pretty easy to obtain once you learn your way around the map a little bit.

-Improve map
-Possibly add music
-Clean up code
