Another step in my education on Pico-8! This is a top-down shoot-em-up, as part of an assignment to focus on an arcade mechanic and see how well we could replicate it ourselves from scratch! I'd also like to thank the star-generation function from the MBoffin Pico-8 instructional zine. I enjoyed creating this because I was really able to play around with graphical generation and hitboxes in Pico-8!

This game was created as part of the Tiny Games class at the ATLAS Institute at The University of Colorado Boulder
