Blast your way through waves of enemies and bullets and defeat massive boss ships in this fast-paced vertical shoot'em up (aka shmup or STG) with a traditional Arcade Mode and an experimental Campaign Mode that borrows from the mechanics of ARPGs such as Diablo and Borderlands.

CAMPAIGN MODE

Choose from 3 ship classes, gain experience up to level 30, loot randomly generated weapons, shields and mods from your enemies and carefully spend points in non-resetable skill trees.

Make your own challenge: overwhelm lower level enemies with devastating firepower, min-max your ship's stats to quickly farm a specific chapter for rare loot, or bite all that you can chew and risk losing it all in hardcore mode.

  • Randomly generated enemy waves
  • 3 sub-modes: Casual (no death penalty), Normal and Hardcore (perma-death)
  • 3 ship classes: Fighter, Cruiser and Destroyer
  • 30 levels of ship experience
  • 15+ stats to min-max, such as Critical Damage, Armor, Shield Regeneration, Hitbox Size and more
  • 3 skill trees (Attack, Defense and Technology)
  • Evolutive special powers
  • Billions of randomly generated items with 4 quality tiers and according rarity
  • 4 tiers of difficulty
  • World ranking

ARCADE MODE

  • 1 bullet death: no life bars or shield shenanigans
  • Chain scoring: combos increase your score multiplier
  • 1CC scoring: you can continue when out of lives but your score and chain will reset
  • In-game power-ups
