Fun + nostalgic-style game, it gets the adrenaline going, and I like how it's short enough to re(play) in a quick sitting. Thank you for creating the whole PICO-8 tutorial for it (I've only watched a few episodes so far).

Hi, where are you trying to play it?
The .p8.png file is a "cartridge" file that PICO-8 should be able to load (on your computer, on a raspberry pi / retroarch based arcade setup, or so on).
Thanks, and getting anything working to fit into the character limits is hard! You might be interested-- I revised it and was able to pack smoother motion and a bit more gameplay (multiple enemies) into 560 characters, though I had to remove sound and a few other details.
Thanks! Ah, and now I see a bug in the attractor resizing-- I'll have to figure out if I can fix it within the 5 characters I have left...
Basically, when the attractor is at max size it changes the direction of what the resize button does-- but if you happen to stop resizing exactly at max size, it sits there changing direction back and forth 60 times a second, so you only have a 50/50 chance of hitting the resize button on the right frame to break out of that loop vs. further growing it.
Update: I think this is fixed now. 560/560 characters used.
