Pico8 remake of Thrust, an old C64 game (although I first came across it on the school BBC Micros). The first game I ever saw that had anything approaching "proper" physics, I owe it a lot.

Z shoots
X fuel scoop/tractor beam/shield (burns fuel)
Up to thrust, L/R to rotate
Extra life every 10000 points

Grab the pod and escape the level! Shoot the reactor (but not too much...) to temporarily disable the turrets! Features possibly the worst version of Rob Hubbard's music ever "composed"!

Made it through 2 levels before realizing this game is hard as s**t! Loads of fun for those two levels.
