Cardinal Ramship Pirate

You have descended into Bordered Space in pursuit of the famed Big Golden Chest. The area has many guardians but you have a time crystal and a pirate ramship...

Ram into other ships to damage them. Only the fastest moving ship deals damage. 

Use the menu to change equipment - each provides different advantages and disadvantages. Scrap items to regain lost health and fuel - some will even increase your maximum health and fuel capacity.

Made for the 7 Day Roguelike Challenge, 2021.


If you're struggling to survive then the following information might be of help.

  • Daggers provide greater speed than the standard Thrust and have the same length of burn.
  • Shields and bucklers scrap for lots of health.
  • Thrusters scrap for lots of fuel - but they also increase your maximum damage.
  • Bigger weapons use fuel faster, shields and bucklers use fuel fastest.
  • Check your map every now and then - the gold chest will appear on your map when you're near it.

This was really fun! It's a very well made game, lovely visuals, and the mechanics are really, really cool once you get used to them. I'm also impressed with the AI. Great job

This was a lot of fun to play! Super satisfying once I got past the initial difficulty hurdle with understanding what things meant. I also loved the aesthetic, what with time starting and stopping like that broken down into a managable number of turns! I found myself micromanaging which item was equipped to each slot with a great amount of detail once I learned the ropes, and that was the run I yarr got the booty.

Gotta love Pico-8
