A downloadable game

An arcade survival shooter, with a focus on bullet hell and stacking a bunch of powerups to counter ever-increasing enemy firepower.

Gameplay

Enemy ships will spawn endlessly from their portals with the sole goal to blow you up. Powerups are here to help you survive. Collect yellow stars to regain health, green stars to also summon a friendly ship, and blue stars to expand and improve your arsenal.
