Fight against aliens in a modern shoot’em up that pays homage to the classic arcade games!

It’s year 104 of Universal Galactic Calendar; after the destruction of the Earth, human survivors are scattered all over the universe, trying to persevere in the hostile environment of the war-torn outer space.

Join the fight as one of the pilots born post-Exodus, travelling through galaxies in search for their meaning of life.

Help other survivors, solve the mysteries and fight - all in order to escape from the universe!

 

• Wide variety of enemies will test your skillfulness and challenge you to adjust to ever-changing conditions.

• Save one person or save millions? Your decisions can have a lasting influence on the whole galaxy.

• Shooting isn't always the way to win - chase your enemies, avoid the obstacles, or leave your trusted spaceship and infiltrate hostile territory on foot.

• Limited palette of clean, flat colors combined with an otherworldly soundtrack create a retro feast for the eyes and ears.
