my high score is 1979 😁
Dominion Ex is a vertical-scrolling shoot'em up designed on Pico-8. Fight 14 different enemies with 4 weapons over 3 levels of space action. (That's 168 pieces of fun!)
It features two difficulties and a ship upgrade system to allow for different play-styles and strategies.
Z - Fire | X - Select weapon | Arrow keys - Movement
Should work with connected controllers/joypads too.
Collect coins to pay for ship upgrades.
To leave a level and visit the hangar to upgrade your ship, you need to fully charge the FTL weapon.
This was a lot of fun to code and a big learning experience. So let me know how you find the game!
