Pico Monsters

Hey everyone!
I just finished my little pokemon-esque jrpg: pico monsters.

In this game there are markers called 'picostops' scattered throughout the map which drop
random items whenever you have defeated a few wild monsters. 'Picostops' also replenish and revive all the monsters in your party. Catch new monsters with picoballs. Due to the save restrictions of pico8 the
team size in this is only 4. Every wild monsters can have up to 4 different moves it's recommended to catch and compare to build your best team. There is also a very small story about professor corks whereabouts...

Let me know if you run into any issues. Thanks for checking it out :)
