This is my first ever complete PICO-8 cartridge.
It is a clone of the arcade game Centipede by Atari.
I hope you enjoy playing around with this game!
I put some interesting game variables up top to experiment with.
I intended to add the spider to this game, but I want to move on to another project: a clone of After Burner by Sega.
Look forward to it!
This game is not yet finished. This is the first time I've attempted to write a game, so feedback is apiciated. Shoutouts to @morgan3d for their work on TOP*BURN, a similar game. I took the sprites from that game. I think I'll work on something smaller before picking this one up again.
Some things that need work:
- The timing of the soundtrack is all over the place. If any musicians want to make a proper rendition of the OST, I would be grateful.
- The enemies seem to fly into the sea when the nose is pointing down. The game engine does not account for where the camera is pointing. Getting this to work might require a more advanced engine.
- I forsee that there will be z-fighting between the enemies and explosions from destroyed aircrafts. Again, this would require a more advanced engine, one that accounts for the z-position of the objects being drawn.
