Zepton Rez 2017

This is a Zaxxon-ish clone, but also created in third person. It's quite a feat for the Pico-8, a system with no actual 3D rendering pipeline baked in. The gameplay is very similar to the venerable classic, where you have shoot or missile oncoming enemies that are ravaging the scenery below. you have to control height and lateral movement just the same, but the third person view means the enemies are coming right at you and your HUD has an aiming pip which turns green when you are in line to shoot with bullets, or close enough to lock a missile on. Of course as the 3D/Voxel engine takes so many of the available resources, there's isn't a massive amount of varied gameplay with only endless runner/higher highscore being the sole goal, but it's still a fun and stunning use of the platform nonetheless.
