My first ever Pico 8 game.

I've been staring at this thing for so long, that i no longer have any idea whether it's actually any good or not. Regardless, it's done now, so i might as well upload it.

New in beta 3: Distortion screen effect when hit!

Managed to get some extra cart space by converting from 2 spaces to tabs, and then used the new found space for this new useless effect. It looks cool though! (A demo cart for the distortion effect can be found here.)

There is still some things i a unhappy about, such as chains and multi kills not being visually represented, but i will have to carve out a good chunk of fat from the game in order to fit it in. I'll get to that eventually.
