TweetTweetPang!

Remember Pang? Loved it on Amiga, so here is a 60 fps demake made in 560 chars with Pico-8 for #tweettweetjam. Move with arrow keys, shoot with C. If you never played the game, well, you'll quickly get around it. Infinite levels and no game over, but if you get hit you restart the current level with the score you had when entering it.

And here's the complete code for you happy fellow Pico-8 owners.

o=0z=-1l=1p=64y=0r=rectfill
function _update60()
if(z<0)z=o m={}for n=1,l do add(m,{x=9+n/l*99,s=12,d=.3,t=0})end
cls()r(0,0,128,98,1)for n in all(m)do
s=n.s
w=99-s-abs(cos(n.t)*s*7)
if(n.x<s or n.x>128-s)n.d=-n.d
n.x+=n.d
circ(n.x,w,s,8)if(y>0 and w+s>y and x>n.x-s and x<n.x+s)then
y=0 z+=1 n.s/=1.6
if(n.s<2)del(m,n)else add(m,{x=n.x,s=n.s,d=-n.d,t=n.t})
end
n.t+=.02/s
end
if(btn(0))p-=1
if(btn(1))p+=1
if y<1 then
if(btn(4))y=99x=p
else
r(x,y,x,98,6)end
p=mid(2,p,125)
if(y>0)y-=2
?z,64,110,7
if(pget(p,93)==8)z=-1
if(#m<1)l+=1 o=z z=-1
?"웃",p-3,94,7
end

Somehow missed this game back in the day. Very fun! The gameplay is reminiscent of Robotron in that there's quite a lot of tactical options yet there the rules are very strict. Great job dood.

Thanks! Played it quite often on Amiga back then, it was a lot of fun to play solo or with another player. And to squeeze into 560 chars too ;) !
