...When a pixel art vertical shooter is combined with pinball to twist the genre!
BETA 1.0.4 IS HERE! 

This update introduces controller support for the menus! A couple little fixes with the menus, some new UI graphics, fixed a bug with unlocking levels in the main menu. Other small fixes. Still much more to come!

As always if there is anything getting past me PLEASE let me know! I'm super grateful for all the feedback I've gotten thus far and would LOVE to hear what you have to say! Even if its negative, or you found a bug. Join the discord and say hi!

There are some button selection glitches with the Android build, but it has no affect on gameplay.

On the WebGL build the links must be clicked (controller wont open them)

The PC build can go vertical either in windowed mode or on a vertical monitor! (This works well for the game)   :)

Thank you, not only for your patience, but also for all the help I've received from testers!

Holding the space bar will allow you to dash with one A or D button press.

Esc key to pause & access options (back button (right bottom button) on android)

(On mobile the controls are an invisible slider the size of the screen. You can tap or slide on the left or right of the screen. Double tap to dash! Touching the screen shoots!)

Controller controls will depend on your controller. On a Playstation controller the left analog controls movement, (X) button shoots and hold (O) button and move to dash. Start button pauses. 



The player has shield that can be taken by enemy and their shots.

The orb has an energy level that is depleted by enemy shots and increased by player shots. If the orb runs out of energy, it dies, and so does the player. (a red-orange orb has low energy, a blue orb has high energy)

If the orb falls to the bottom of the level, the player will die.


magenta =spread shot (15 seconds)

green = bullets get faster (15 seconds)

yellow = larger bullets (15 seconds)

orange = impact on ball increases (15 seconds)

red = fire rate increase (15 seconds)

blue = shield +1 



All feedback is appreciated!
