Hi all, first time posting on here (my pico-8 interactions have all previously been on Twitter). This is the first game I've actually "finished" making since 2-player 1-on-1 top-down shooter "Reservoir Fish" in 1995. That was written in AMOS Pro on an Amiga 1200, and only ever existed on a single 3.5" floppy disk which has probably long-since perished.

Here I've attempted to create a historically-accurate simulation of the D-Day Normandy landings. Naturally, the game is completed once you have defeated Hitler. Don't anger him by killing his friends, though! He can sure fire a lot of grenades.

If you fail, Hitler gets to keep France, and that is not very good.

There are 4 difficulty levels. Or are there? Is there a cheat mode? I don't know. Try unplugging your joystick, wetting your finger and rubbing the port gently to enable it.

Anyone who can complete the game in Brexit mode earns themselves a drink on me.

CONTROLS:

Direction buttons to move, fire 1 (z) to shoot, fire 2 (x) to throw a grenade.

Watch out for landmines! And Nazis.
