It’s a horizontal scrolling shoot ‘em up on which you play with a Phoenix. As the game progresses, your phoenix grows older as the bar on the bottom fills. Shooting or getting hit lowers the bar. When the bar is full, you’re a mature phoenix and you can reincarnate – doing so resets your power-ups, but increases your score multiplier and kills all enemies, as well as removing the fog that slowly descends upon the screen, obstructing your view. As an arcade game, the objective is to obtain a high score, and knowing the right time to reincarnate is a critical point.

The game is written in C++11 with our own engine.

Programmed by Rodrigo Monteiro. Amora, Santo, bitmOO and Marina Val were the visual artists. The music was composed by Rafa Miranda, and we had some game design help in the first day from Iko. Thanks to everyone involved!
