LANDER

(another PICO-8 game from me)

Controls

Menu: Z to start game.

Game: DOWN to fire main thruster

LEFT/RIGHT to fire main thrusters

Game over: Z to restart.

Mechanics

It's a lander game! Thrown together in about four hours over two days! Aaaa!

You're aiming to land as fully on the white pad as possible. If you're not on it enough, it won't count.

The wind/gravity is a little different on each level, so be wary of adjustments.

Just mind your fuel, and don't drag the lander along the walls, or you'll bust it up.

Commentary

Whew another busy month. I have an exploding tooth in my mouth and that has been a bad time. Meanwhile I have been working on some cool Blender scenes in my 'project time' which leaves less time for actually making games. Frustrating at the end of the month when I end up rushing, but it feels good the rest of the month.

Install instructions

The game should work great in the browser whether downloaded or not! Download the ZIP and put both files in the same folder, then double-click on 'lander.html'. It should open like a normal webpage.

The binaries just need to be downloaded and unzipped on the correct kind of computer - they should work from the unzipped folder with no extra messing. I'm just using the built-in PICO-8 binary export, but please let me know if something is weird with them. It is a new enough feature.

If you have PICO-8 and want to check out the game's code/etc. or just play it in the 'real thing', download either lander.p8 or lander.p8.png to your pico-8/carts directory, then load from within the game with 'load lander'.
