The retro mix of a shmup and a rpg you've always wanted to play! Battle space monsters, pirates and avoid asteroids, upgrade your new spaceship and buy new weapons !

greenlightTitleFeatures l

  • Fast shoot'em'up gameplay with big boss fights
  • 10 different weapons, 4 different ships, 6 levels and more bosses, 3 difficulty levels
  • Tons of other customization options (armors, engines, etc.)
  • Experience, level up, skill points
  • Pixel art cutscenes and chiptunes music made on Atari-ST and ZX Spectrum

greenlightTitleGameplay l

The gameplay is fast paced and based more on killing enemies than escaping thousands of bullets.
The inspirations for the gameplay are games like Raiden, Donpachi and other classic shoot'em'up games that did not have tiny hitboxes and did not throw 10000 bullets at you (this is not a bullet hell).
Skill, dedication and patience is what you will need to be able to defeat your enemies but if you can't, you can always warp out of a level, upgrade your ship and come back with a vengeance!
