Deep -- A Shallow Treasure Adventure

By electricgryphon Published on Sep 22nd, 2015 367

This is my first game on the Pico-8, and, to be honest, the first game that I have "polished" to this level.

Explore a hazard-filled cave, collect all of the treasure, and then escape through the elevator hidden in the depths.

Left and Right to move.
Up to jump.

As befits a normal human going against skeletons, slime creatures, and demonic bats, you are completely defenseless and can only shrug off damage that comes your way. Luckily, the intelligence of said critters is meager at best, so it is possible to avoid coming into contact with them.

Let me know what you think.


Bat flying behavior has some bugs.
Camera movement shows occasional jerkiness.
Needs play-testing and probably more variety in regards to room / trap types.
