test outskirts

Drive your ship through your foes and destroy them ! In this circular bullet-hell, switch colours to absorb projectiles, build up energy and unleash your powers. Overcome huge waves of enemies and master your combos to reach the best score possible !

In-game screenshot

Outskirts is based on three fondamentals:

  • Everything happens within a circle
  • The player and basic ennemies have three different colours
  • A combo system depending on killed enemies’ colour


The player can switch from each colour at any time during the game. This has several consequences:

  • if the projectile is the same colour as the player’s, he can absorb it and witness his power gauge filling up
  • if the enemy and the player have the same colour, player’s projectiles will deal less damages to those enemies. When they die, they fill said colour power gauge.

Player’s colour choice

By default, the players gets the power "Unleash".

This power uses the whole power gauge and destroy everything standing on its path. The size of the explosion depends on the level of filling of each colour. Other powers can be unlocked thanks to the combo system.

In Outskirsts, there are two combo systems:

  • The first one is based on dead enemies’ colour and is limited to three.

  • Use previous combos as value (Super-combo)

Combos are useful for two things: improve the player’s score and the multiplier.
Super-combos are secret combos that release powerful effects: fill every power gauge, replace the current power with another one, and so much more!

  • Play with the depth of the map to manage waves of enemies.
  • A colour system to absorb enemy bullets and optimize your damages.
  • Deep and rewarding combo system.
  • No randomness.
