Killing zombies never gets old, but some times you just need a break.

Get back to some serious Old-School gaming with Syder Arcade!
A love letter to Amiga the games of the 90', no coins, no upgrade grinding, just your tenacity and a motherload of alien invaders.

Syder Arcade is a free scrolling, multi directional shoot 'em up, an uncompromised old-school experience, furious, challenging, straightforward. This game will bring you back in time, when bulky starships were cool and games were about player skill and swearing madly at your computer.

If you like Syder Arcade please support our project on Steam Greenlight.

The time has come to launch Syder Arcade HD on mobile platforms!
Studio Evil and Alisade Warp Industries will be happy to teleport the game directly into your iOS and Android devices starting January 28, for a small fee of 0.99$ or equivalent credits in your galactic region.

Our retro-inspired shmup is a simple game, just shoot aliens and be awesome in space with bullets made of neon. But remember to avoid glowing stuff that is not coming from your ship.

Syder Arcade has no grind, no player exploiting multi-layered upgrade systems, no IAPs. Just 6 levels of fast paced challenge, featuring beautiful visuals and retro-electronic soundtack.

We are really excitet about this release, it's our first official mobile game ... but most of all now that the mobile version is ready we can finally get some rest.

Who am I kidding.

We've got new content on the way and an OUYA version to build :D

I know you guys have been pretty busy, but any progress on the Linux version? I remember mention that it would be out some time after Unity 4 released around the new year.

We got unity 4 only last week :/

Anyway we are testing the linux build internally right now. It seems to work just fine and we will probably be able to release it in a few weeks.

It's been a few months, just curious if any progress has been made on the Linux version? It'd be nice to be able to play this on something larger than my Android phone screen. :)
