Solaroids is a re-imagined version of the classic Asteroids® as a single or local multiplayer shooter that retains the essential premise that inertia is the missing ingredient of many modern top down shooters.
One to four players can experience a Campaign mode that progresses from tame introductory levels to epic high-octane space battles that will challenge even the most experienced pilots. As the campaign progresses, and the threat continues to grow, the types of weapons and firepower at your disposal will also increase. As you get familiar with the game mechanics and the properties of different hazards and enemies, you will learn many subtle aspects of the game: what combinations of piloting, armament, and strategies result in the most success and fame.
While each player competes for high scores individually, to accomplish this each must choose their own path; whether to be friend or foe, work together or individually, fight or flee. Each player can customize their ship colors and join or leave the game at any time. As participants come and go, the action never stops.
If you are in need of a "quick fix," Free Play mode is always waiting with its instant ramp up, and unlock of all weapons and enemies.

Space is a cold, even frigid, place and a sinister plot has been hatched by unknown forces. Working against us, an alien presence has deployed the biggest snow machine known to man, or any other-worldly inhabitant for that matter, in the hopes of sneakily invading our little corner of the galaxy.
Battle the most fearsome and retaliatory snowflakes (and the slithery snowman) you've ever laid eyes on, in a deadly battle against what would appear on the surface as a winter wonderland.
Use your skills acquired playing... ahem… Solaroids, to defend our little home. Do you have what it takes? Do you even care enough to stand up and be counted among humanities last hope for survival?
