Debris 🚀

This one is just a small PICO-8 shoot'em-up (shmup) with a little twist or as I like to call it: A Shmup Short Story.

The rules are simple:

  1. Try to survive 120 seconds.
  2. Shoot debris to raise bonus.
  3. Beat the hi-score.

That's all.

Shoot enemies, juggle debris, collect coins, survive. Juggling debris will raise the bonus you get for destroying enemies. Every time your bonus is raised by 50 points all bullets on the screen will turn into gold items. Collect those for additional 75 points each.

Debrix 2.0

Update 2.0: Debrix, the Debris Remix provides a complete graphic overhaul. New enemies and new graphic effects. I left the gameplay is completely untouched. 

Where can I play it?

Play it right here in the browser at the top of the page.
Or download the cart and play it in your PICO-8 fantasy console.
Or search for "Debris" in Splore of your PICO-8 fantasy console.
