Looking great so far! I really enjoyed the original Curse of Trasmoz on the Spectrum. It's cool to see an Amstrad version, I really like the vibrant colours and the detail in the backgrounds and sprites

Fun game! I like the risk element of trying to hold in the tailgate position for as long as you can before dodging and the parallax effects are nice too.

Thanks! I experimented with adding music when I made the game but never got it sounding right so I preferred to have no music instead of having bad music!

Hi, I'm glad you like the game. I'm currently busy with my own stuff so I don't have time for collaborating but thanks for the offer!

Thanks very much!

Thanks for playing the game and making the video! I hope you had fun playing Solar Blaster and I gave you a like and subscribe on youtube

You could try my game Solar Blaster: Challenge Stage, it's a simple and fun space shooter where you have two minutes to destroy as many enemies as you can and get the high score. All you need are the arrow keys to move, Z to shoot and X to use a Super Bomb. It's free to download for Linux, Windows, Mac and Raspberry Pi and you can also play it in your browser.

It's simple, classic arcade style fun!


That's a good score! Thanks for posting it and I'm glad you like the game. You're right about the UFO's too, they're key to getting high scores. 

For anyone reading this who doesn't know the trick to the UFO's here's how it works:

Shoot a UFO and the points for the next one will be doubled, up to a set maximum. If a UFO passes the side of the screen without you shooting it, the points for the next UFO will reset to the base amount. So keep shooting the UFO's and not letting them go past the side of the screen and your score can build up very quickly!

Thanks, I need a bit more practice at making music on Pico-8 but it would be good to to have music at some point!

Thanks, glad you liked it!

Hi Zakaria, thanks so much for choosing my game for your latest video! I thought it was really great and it was a lot of fun to watch! I'm glad you enjoyed the game, and it was great that you showed both game modes too. I enjoyed seeing you improve on each attempt at the game, and I'm glad you got to try all the different power ups. 

The text intro screens explaining the power ups and controls do kind of go by a bit quickly, but they will cycle around again if you don't press any keys. If I do any more updates to the game I'd probably adjust the speed of this but otherwise I'm happy with the game as it is at the moment. The Endless Attack mode was added in the version 1.1 update because people enjoyed the game and wanted to be able to play it for longer than 2 minutes, I've been really pleased and surprised by the positive reaction the game has had so far - and it's great seeing people like you finding the game now and enjoying it!

I hope your video gets a lot of views and that it helps to boost your channel as well. I gave you a like and a comment on the video and subscribed too!

Thanks! I'm really glad you liked the game and thanks for taking the time to make the video, it was really fun to watch! It's really cool to be able to see someone playing the game and reacting to it and having fun, I don't usually get to see that so this was great!I liked the interruption from your dog too! I hope you get lots of views and thanks for choosing my game to play out of all those that were suggested in your thread on the forum, I really appreciate it!

I've had a few attempts but only managed a high score of 46 so far! I like that it has that 'just one more go..' factor to it as I always think I can do better next time. I find the game pretty challenging but that's good - I like the tension of trying to make it to the top of the screen before anything can get you. It's a fun game!

Hello Zakaria,

Solar Blaster: Challenge Stage

Solar Blaster: Challenge Stage

You've got 2 minutes to get the high score in this all-action space shooter made with Pico-8. Collect power ups like the spread shot and destroy everything in your path as wave after wave of enemies descend from the top of the screen.

Take up the challenge and go for the high score!

Hello! Please check out my game Solar Blaster: Challenge Stage

Solar Blaster: Challenge Stage

It's an all-action space shooter made with Pico-8 where you've got 2 minutes to get the high score. It's simple to play and easy to get into and will give you a lot of fun where you're destroying wave after wave of enemy ships. The game can be played in your browser or downloaded for free for Windows, Mac, Linux and Raspberry Pi.

 

Thanks very much for playing the game and I'm really glad you are having fun with it! I need a bit more practice at creating audio in pico 8 before I could put music in the game, at the moment I think it's better that there's no music instead of there being bad music in it! I'm not sure which enemy you're referring to and the shots being impossible to avoid, but for the most part the enemies in most waves appear in the same positions each time, so if you play a few times and learn which enemies appear and when, you can learn where to place your ship to avoid a lot of the shots.

Thanks again for playing the game and leaving feedback, it's really appreciated!

The Earth is under attack from the invading alien war machine! Take control of the Solar Blaster fighter ship and strike back!

Solar Blaster: Challenge Stage is an action packed space shooter where you’ve got 2 minutes to get the high score. Destroy as many enemy waves as you can within the time limit, collect power ups like rapid fire and spread shot and cause massive destruction with your 3 super bombs.

This game is based on the 2 minute ‘caravan’ shooter format from classic PC Engine games. I wanted to create a simple, fun shooter that was easy to pick up and enjoy and that players would want to keep coming back to in order to beat their high score.

Play the game for free in your browser or download the zip folder containing stand alone versions for Windows, Mac, Linux and Raspberry Pi. The stand alone versions support high score save and can also be played with controllers.

Take up the challenge and go for the high score!

Solar Blaster: Challenge Stage was created with Pico-8. This is my second game on itch.io and I hope you all enjoy it!

This is amazing! I loved the original arcade game when I was a kid and it's stunning to see it recreated so well in Pico 8. It's really incredible how well you've been able to capture the look and feel of the arcade game.

I really like this, it's very close to the original arcade and is really well put together. Scramble is one of my favourite old arcade games and you've done a great job with this version. Great graphics and sound effects and it plays brilliantly.

I've now made a few modifications to the movement and turn order code and uploaded a new version of the game to the page.  This should fix the glitch but if it does happen again let me know! Also let me know if you do manage to beat the game too!

Thanks for letting me know about the glitch, I'll have a look and see if I can find what might be causing it. At the moment I'm not sure if this is something specific to HTML5 or a flaw in the turn update sequence in the game logic. I don't have Discord, but any comments about the game whether good or bad are welcome on any of my pages here!

Excellent game! Really simple to play and also addictive. You've done a fantastic job of recreating the original in Pico-8!

Tales From The Labyrinth


This is looking really slick! The special effects are superb, I especially like the ability at 0.48 in the video where you freeze all the enemy bullets and turn them into pickups!
