A downloadable game

8-Invaders is a simple clone of Taito's classic arcade game for the Pico-8 fantasy console. I used it as a means to learn how to write games for the system and as such it's not very complex and also may not be very well programmed, but it works and I'm kind of proud of it.

You can download the game file from this page, but it's also hosted on Lexaloffle's Pico-8 BBS:  https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?pid=32613&tid=28083

As with all Pico-8 carts, the source code for the game is fully accessible so feel free to have a poke around.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 stars

Install instructions

The game was developed for Pico-8 version 0.1.11F, but may run fine on earlier or later versions.

If you'd prefer to just play, you can play in-browser at the Lexaloffle Pico-8 BBS:

Well made. Fun to play. (Btw, end of Level 5 is so deadly)

ooh nice. Will give it a play later. I'm currently at the arcade club in Bury.
