Hey man, you did great work on this ! Great job! I think turning from side to side was really rough in spots but other than that, great mechanics and humor!

Goose wah!


Cheers! Yeah, turning worked better, but I put in a back punch that screwed the controls up a bit! I'll probly do another update soon that should fix it and a few other problems. And i'll put out a nice post-jam version at some point, re-write the code and add a few more moves. 


I love the art style and music! also the humor was great too -knitting lmao  and I played for like 5 min before I noticed the frogger lives lol  xD  Awesome work on this!


Cheers. First person to mention the Frogger lives too! I was going to do pac-man lives, but 8x8 was a little too small. 

Developer (1 edit)

Added hit sprites.

 Fixed Ron-Bot ai bug (maybe)
 Added a short invunerablitly to enemies after falling.
 Added stop/go staggering to stop people running through the level.



Had this issue fighting ron-bot. A really well done brawler in pico8 and the pixel art is great, although I think the jump is a little weird to control. Guess them pink ninjas are behind these arkancides. 


Cheers hopefully fixed that. I've changed the scroll in this update too, which makes the jump a little less jerky. 


Ok, nother update. So got the vehicle level rolling, knife throwing ninjas, few other tweaks. Pretty much done apart from some music... 


bad dudes+sd final fight?



'nother update. Got enemy drops, level transitions, continues and a few tweaks.


Got the first update sorted for this... changed some of the sfx, fixed some of the probs with the Ron-Bot boss, hopefully. Added some message windows for boss dialogue. I'll do another tonight and hopefully a fully fixed version by tommorow night. 


I absolutely adore the art style. I struggled a lot with surviving (glad, for the jam at least, it seems you can't die for good?) but that's probably just down to personal skill.


Cheers. Yeah i've got a continues system to put in. Aswell as alot of other stuff! Should have a reasonably complete update by monday afternoon.


Very good game! I've managed to reach the second boss but after 15min of trying to kill him I had to move to something else.

Cheers. The ron-bot is on almost every level 'cause he's the only boss I managed to complete on time... You have to fly kick him in the head, but its unclear til I add the feedback to it. I'll have an update today and and another tommorow that'll balance the whole thing up a bit more.


Hey, very solid art and gameplay!

I could not damage the boss of the first level, is that normal?



I managed to kill him. He's just very tough.


You need to fly kick him in the head. I need to add some feedback to it. Health bar and some more fx. But ran out of time. There's quite a bit missing at the moment! Hopefully update tomorrow morning. Cheers!
