Invaders from Space

by Nick - Mini LD Entry

(Although this runs on any modern PC, I used Pico-8 to make it, so it has the limitations of many early consoles)

This is basically a straight different version of space invaders. Destroy the aliens before they reach the surface. It doesn't have too many levels yet, but I wanted to post it here. There are multiple weapons available:
-The primary weapon shoots normal semi-automatic fire that kills enemies in 1 shot, 2 shots and 3 shots.
-The machine gun shoots rapidly, but doesn't deal too much damage (not OP).
-The rocket launcher deals 30 damage, enough to kill any enemy on first shot, but has a recharge time
-The scatter cannon shoots 3 shots at a time spread out, and deals a little less damage than the rocket launcher.

==================
==== Controls ====
==================

-Z to shoot primary weapon
-X to shoot secondary weapon
- Left/Right arrow keys to move
- Up to quickly pause
- Down to change secondary weapon

Nice little game! Maybe you should make the aliens move left-to-right a bit?

Hey fun game. Too rapid the enemy shoots for me, but ok. Well done!

No
Pico-8 limitations are very different from any actual console

pico-8 isn't a platform that existed in 2000.
