updated: added ricochets / music / music toggle / screenshake toggle. use the 'return menu' to access the options.

z=shoot
x=jump
l/r=move left/right

get a high score! ammo is limited so be sure to retrieve your shots. chain together multiple kills with 1 bullet for score multipliers, and ricochet bullets off walls for bonuses.

some tips:

  1. bullets take on the left/right momentum of the player, so use that to line up shots!
  2. jumping can help you launch bullets higher!
  3. when bullets hit an enemy, their direction/travel speed is affected by the enemy movement. i.e a fast enemy moving left will knock the bullet left by a moderate amount and halt its upward momentum significantly.

Been working on and off on this for the last week or so. It's still my first week and a bit with pico-8 and coding in general so the code is a bit janky in places (methods are a bit long overall, lol)

Enjoy!
