Not a game but a test to learn my way around the IDE and library:

I'm a new programmer, Loving this, can't wait for the real device!

B button to start, D-Pad Left/Right to move Left/Right, A to fire, B while in game to pause and show score and remaining lives, B to restart at Game Over screen.

Need to add:
- Info screen when you lose a life (like the pause screen)
- More columns and rows of different types of aliens
- Increasing difficulty
- Sound

Very cool to see that you're able to work on this with the emulator!  I tested it on hardware quickly and it seems to work as intended, keep us updated if you do any more before you have hardware!

Will do, I will try to flesh this out into a real game if I have time, Can I see a screenshot of it running on the real hardware, I'd like to see the relative scale of things if possible.

Thanks,

Brian

Best picture my phone could manage, which is probably the only way to get a good sense of how it looks!

Hello! I've just tried Your demo on an emulator and I must say that It's very nice and very playable! Also, I was amazed at how good Your code is commented! I'm not a programmer myself but even for me It was very interesting and informative to read. My only suggestion would be to make player's character move just a bit faster. I really hope to see a full version on this game!

Thanks for the comments, I will try to continue working on the game when I have time, I have just started to learn to program myself, I have a full working version in Pico-8 but that is in Lua (language). I need to figure out how to use arrays in Python an iterate through them in order to add more invaders, etc.
