An action-packed 2D side-scrolling shooter inspired by classic twitchy action games of yesteryear, but with modern touches and conveniences.

Dateline: Earth, 1999. An unprovoked alien invasion is underway. You, a total badass, don't really appreciate it. You won't stand for it. You're downright outraged. You pack up some essentials--guns, cigars, whiskey--and head out into the night. Little do you know that tonight you will make history. This is: Operation Hardcore.

  • Fight your way past enemies using a range of weapons
  • Double-jump your way around obstacles and hazards
  • Activate your traditional plasma-based shield to deflect enemy fire
  • Drink some whiskey to slow time and increase damage (...at the expense of mental clarity)
  • Strap on a jetpack and get airborne for some classic forced-scrolling challenges
  • Collect coins to purchase items, weapons and upgrades between levels
  • Meet or beat level par times to earn yourself a brag-worthy Badass Rank(™)
  • Grab a friend for some friendly and/or competitive 2 player local co-op

Game Features

  • 12 levels of fiery, bloody, explosive-y alien-blasting mayhem
  • 4 playable badasses
  • Analog controls for precise 360 degree aiming
  • Modern sound design and electronic soundtrack by Snug
  • Intense 2 player local co-op
  • Modern particle/atmospheric and lighting effects
  • Multiple difficulty settings, upgrade paths and secret areas
