Pretty sweet! I have just started researching pico 8 so I'm playing through a lot of the games that look really cool, and yours is awesome!

Hey! Thank you very much for your words! I'm glad you enjoyed it :) If you manage to destroy the evil final boss, let me know ;)

This looks lovely. When I get on my pc later I will give it a go. 

Thanks! Please tell me what you think about it, I love Spaceman Splorf!

ooh thank you!

Okay, I've played it now and WOW! Very nice. The sfx work fantastically with this game too. Very playable and enjoyable. Nice work indeed.

I'm really glad to know that you enjoyed it! :)
Your words encourage me to keep creating games. If you ever have any idea to collaborate together I will be happy to do so.
Thank you very much!

ooh, collaboration! I'll let ya know! Maybe soon, yeah?

Soon! Yeah! I'll be looking forward to hear from you ;)

Great gameplay, loving the game!

Original turn to horizontal scroll like Nemesis or R-Type of the mythical game Galaga. True to the originals games of 80, but with your own style and soul, which is appreciated in the playability and the design and behavior of the enemy spaceships. 

Great and nice job!

 Congratulations
