Climb into your pointy-headed rocket suit and reach for the skies. Earn points by flying into enemy airships. Be careful not to let them escape! Keep clear of the red biplane and the green toxic cloud or you risk losing a life. Score 10 points to get a life back and score 99 to win the game.

The game was created with the incredible DragonRuby Game Toolkit. The initial version was created with Pico-8 and owes an enormous debt to Pico's Fantasy Console visual style. The music and sound effects were also created with Pico-8.

Thanks to the DragonRuby team as well as the friendly, talented people at discord.dragonruby.org.

made it to 9 - I liked this one! Some neat particle effects you got going there. No sound on Windows, but I tried out the web version to compare. It's DEFINITELY better to download it.


Thanks. I appreciate the feedback!  Working on bringing back the sound.

Thanks onlymatt!
