DOWNLOAD FOR ANDROID DEVICES AT THE BOTTOM OF PAGE  :)

Retro Space Ball (working title) is an EARLY ACCESS vertical shooter merged with classic pinball. Test an early alpha build here on your browser, or download the installer for android. Also there is an executable for windows.

Controls:

W: Fire (hold for continuous)

A:Left << (twice to dash)

D:Right >>(twice to dash)

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

(On mobile the controls are GUI buttons and self explanatory! Double tap to dash!)

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

RULES:

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 = speed +1 (15 seconds)

yellow = larger bullets (15 seconds)

orange = impact + 1 (15 seconds)

red = rate + 1 (15 seconds)

blue = shield +1 

Pink & cyan +! = multiorb (another orb shoots out of your ship)

The continue button at the start screen is a level select button (for testing) ;)

THANKS SO MUCH FOR PLAYING!! :) :) :)

All feedback is appreciated!
