A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

A hive mind has found earth and sent SWARMS of aliens to destroy everything. You are the only one standing in their way... how long will humanity last?

Taking inspiration from the N64 era space shooters, this score-attack game has you flying through space taking on unending waves of alien attackers. Take aim with your ship's dual laser cannons or smash your hull through their carapaces to earn the highest score!

Local leaderboard keeps track of your greatest runs, so you can brag to your friends.

Keyboard Controls: WASD or Arrow keys to turn. Spacebar to shoot (hold it down or spam like mad :P).

Gamepad Controls: Joystick to turn, main action buttons to shoot (ex: Xbox is a,b,x,y buttons).

Axis inversion can be changed in the controls menu.
