UPDATE: Based on feedback, I've added the option to add a border or background around the minimap. The option can be seen in the pause menu (press ). I also added a sash that shows what level you're about to begin.
My first real Pico-8 game! It's a clone of the classic arcade game Bosconian, which has always been a favorite of mine. I'm really happy with how it turned out. There's a few things that I might eventually revisit, and the music is sort of terrible, but all and all not bad for my first fully fledged game.
X to shoot,  to pause. D-pad to steer, but the ship flies forwards on its own.
