You are Spaceman Splorf, who is trying to retrieve a lost spanner that hurtles through space. 

You simply have to avoid being hit by the asteroids, sinking in the acid or being
zapped by the disintegration fence above.

This is a simple casual high-score chase game then gets progressively harder the longer you play it. 

The original game was created by Andreas Gustafsson & Vanja Utne of Pond Software on the old 8-bit Commodore C64 computer and released in Feb, 2016. ( C64 Spaceman Splorf can be downloaded here.)

I decided to have a go at doing a PICO-8 version. I think it turned out okay. 
Much credit needs to go to Paul Nicholas (@Liquidream) for 
helping me out with some coding problems/bugs I encountered.

Also,  Morgan McGuire ( @CasualEffects ) furnished me with somewhat  awesome particle code to play with, which worked a treat.

Extra thanks to these peeps who also (sometimes unwittingly) helped.
