About this gameYou have one aim in this game - to STAY ALIVE!
Sadly the Crimson Tide Consortium are, for no apparent reason, out to get you.
Unashamedly retro in every aspect, if you want amazing visuals then look elsewhere, but if you want a simple, challenging game that's randomised every time you play it, you might just find this to be your cup of tea.
- Steam achievements
- 3 Global Leaderboards
- Works with Linux using Proton in Steam
- Play individual levels or "Challenge Mode", where you try to defeat all 20 levels in order
- In Challenge Mode, every 5th level is a Boss
- Highly customisable for all skill levels
- Right or left-handed keyboard controls
