Saxophight!

Play as Max the Sax and keep your solo alive for as long as you can against an unending barrage of trumpets in a cutthroat underground jazz club.

This is the first full game I've made in PICO-8, and really my first completed game period.  It's an arcade game that procedurally generates music based on how you play.  There's a blues mode and a bebop mode (bebop mode let's you play faster but it's also more difficult).  High scores and unlocks are saved if you download the cartridge.  Instructions are in game!

Also for anyone interested, the source code with version history is up on my github page here.

Edit: the music desyncs really badly on the web player, so I'd recommend downloading the cartridge to play it!
