Thanks. I'll leave interpretation up to you. ;)

Thanks! I wanted a big sky.

That was definitely my favourite part too.


Beautiful art.

I keep getting stuck -- I guess I am supposed to switch to a pick, but the mouse scroll doesn't seem to get picked up in OSX.

I can't get this running on OSX?

Cute idea!

This is great. You probably had a simple goal to achieve for the jam, and I would say that you achieved it very well. The controls are great, things are smooth and straightforward, and you probably have a great base to move forward from or else you learned what you wanted to learn. A great jam entry!

A new spin on endless climber games -- I like this gameplay more, though I'm terrible at it. Being able to fly backwards is a good choice.

It could be more 'fair' if the missles were telegraphed a bit before appearing -- a small arrow on the side of the screen before they show up or something? I usually die when I go too far to one side and get hit before I can dodge.

Very good! The art is great (I'm a pico-8 fan), and it seems like this is something you could build on in the future. The gameplay is a little funny sometimes -- when coins spawn in corners it's not possible to pick them up, I think?

Overall I'd say it's very good. I like the shop owner -- THANK!

I haven't been able to run it on OSX, but I really like what you have in the gameplay video -- the art design is really great, and the gameplay looks simple and fun. A great jam idea, and very well executed! :D

Have you thought about being able to attack the opponent somehow, perhaps even if it just slows them down for a second? It could make being near the other player a bit riskier, and add an additional strategic layer to the game.

Pretty good! You can't spray over the outside edges of stencils -- this could be a nice touch to get that real "graffiti sim" feel.

Nice! The sound design was great, and the game was fun too -- I beat the last enemy, which I thought was also the best part of the gameplay. I liked zipping through the bullet stream it fired!

I didn't realise that the power-ups weren't enemies for a little while. If I had to offer some constructive advice, I would say to try and make them visually more distinct from the enemy ships?

Overall very good!

For others who come by -- the webGL build runs on OSX using firefox.

I really like the aesthetic of this! The music is wonky, the graphics are weird, the colours are bright -- it's great!

This does run on OSX!

A good demo, the procgen level is cool! Some collision detection issues landing on the platforms.

Yes, as the others have said -- just a black screen here.

It looks cool, but I can't figure out how to move, and so I can't really avoid the AI attacks. Is this possible? If you don't want player movement to be a thing, maybe being able to shoot their missiles down would be an interesting idea?

This music is great!

I died a lot until I realised that I should just basically never stop shooting -- have you experimented with auto-firing at all?

I'm not sure if I am supposed to die at the end of the level, but I definitely did.

I ruined a lot of pizza, as a pineapple does. :)

The controls were a little slippery, but not necessarily in a bad way -- I thought that it felt nice to play.

This is great! I played until I beat one of the giant ships, which I probably wouldn't have done if there hadn't been no penalty on death -- that was a nice idea to make this game pretty accessible.

I found it pretty hard to know which ship was the important one when I had several following me around -- I tend to watch my ship out of the corner of my eye when playing a game like this, so I think the extra engine animations from the dark ships were what distracted me. I'm terrible at SHMUPs though, so there's also that. ;)

Simple and fun! A bit more variation between the asteroids could be cool.

Super cute! I echo the growing comment, but these are still nice as-is. I like the asthetic you went with.

I really like the cats. Their tails! :3

These visuals are dope. 🌙

Oh man, I was not expecting to be able to swim. This makes pretty cool maps, nicely done!

Very fun!

Too hard for me, I think -- but it looks great.

(Me with the hammer: http://imgur.com/a/5shLp)

This controls really nicely, and all the different weapons feel really good -- I was expecting one of them to be a lemon in a jam game, but they're all great.

I'd totally play around with something more ambitious if it felt like this one does -- it probably wouldn't take much more effort to turn it into something bigger. :D

This isn't running past the character generation screen for me on OSX ... but it looks like an awesome idea. \m/

Pretty cool -- make sure to hang out near one you think is interesting, as the paintings keep developing for a little while.


Cute! A nice little demo.

Heya -- these images are broken. Could you just post the pico-8 colour indices?

It is typically possible to add a late submission -- you might be able to get directly in contact with the organiser (https://itch.io/profile/xondak) some other way as well. It probably wouldn't be much trouble, and the more entries, the more fun the jam is!

You've gotta eat the other birds!

... if you want to. You could also just fly around and enjoy the sunset. Maybe you're a vegetarian raptor?

I was developing using the sprite editor in pico-8 directly, though I use sublime text to actually do the text editing.

Nice! I think that's what jams are all about -- getting the seed of an idea to work on later. :D

I agree -- procedurally generating boards would be really interesting here.
