Luftwiderstand, German for air resistance and pronounced something like [looft-wee-dar-shtand], is a minimalist arcade shooter in development. You control a jet plane and fight against hordes or bullet-spewing baddies and gravity for fame, glory and your personal bragging rights. Pick up items to restore health and increase the score multiplier for an epic highscore. Development on this game has been canceled, see the latest news (one it's gotten approved) for an explanation if you really car. Thank you all!


The version seen in the video is now debugged and eager to be played with. Here are the controls again. Left: A • Right: D • Boost: W • Shoot: ↑ or Right Shift • Skip Intro & Respawn: Space • Exit: Esc. I'd be happy to learn from you gals and guys whether you like the controls and feeling of the movements and overall gameplay. Bear in mind that I will add some new enemy ships with different attack patterns and some more items. But feel free to comment with your ideas! Much appreciated!
