Welcome to the Arena

Shoot. Die. Repeat.


ARENA is an on going solo development from one man team MBSquared Entertainment and aims to be a collection of fast paced Arcade Game Modes set within a seamless world bursting with colour and vibrant audio.

New features are being added all the time and currently two game modes are playable,

  • Exosphere - Top down view, twin stick shooter. Prepare for Fireworks. This game play is the love child of Geometry Wars™ and Super Stardust™ Delta
  • Fathom - Stealth based with no weapons, skill and strategy are your ally here. This would be the Pac-Man™ nightmare. Jump scares ahead


Upcoming game modes that are currently in development,

  • Commander - 1st Person Turret defence. Take control of powerful weaponry to defeat your opponents, but you'll most likely die trying.
  • Velocity - High speed racing. Take to the track and pump up the velocity. 3 Dimensions make for mind bending courses
  • Stranded - 3rd Person Flying Combat. Fully fledge space based combat. Skill and accuracy will help you master ARENA's skies


Other features which are already included with ARENA,

  • Leaderboards - ARENA is fully integrated with Steam Leaderboards so that you can keep track of not only your score, but your friend's too. Come back to your favourite levels time and time again and see how close you can reach the top
  • Achievements - There are many to collect, each with their own unique in-game Medal to view. Who can be first to unlock them all...


As this is a solo development, and also a first time game for MBSquared Entertainment, progress can be a little slow at times and extras features such as Multiplayer and Dock (where you can customise your game play with the stars you collect) will be added at a later date and most likely be a part of the final release.

Still working hard behind the scenes of my hectic life on this solo project! Work has started on the new game mode, which can be thought of as a cross between Gears of War Horde and Geometry wars.

Just trying out defence placement, re-moving and basic AI routines on finding the player in this video. Having to learn all of this from scratch and trying out features is part of the process.

As always, trying to make this as beautiful as possible and have created my own personal multithreaded wireframe system :) if anyone else using unity would like to know more, get in touch.

Multiplayer has always been one of the big features I have wanted to implement. As a solo developer, I have had to wait until my knowledge allowed me...

Not quite the horsepower for 1080p and 60fps... 720p and 60fps will do :P

I'd love to see this released in early alpha, this game looks great so far :)

(It almost perfectly fits a game I've been planning on making lately :D)

Is Linux support planned/possible in the future?

In addition to finding you on IndieGames.com during their recent Screenshot Saturday article, I also just read your "Driven to Develop" post. Your alpha of Arena so far and personal story as a developer are equally inspiring. As someone that's a huge fan of twin stick shmups and heavily enjoyed being involved in the Early Access of Assault Android Cactus, I'm super excited for when you decide to launch in Early Access on Steam. Cheers!
