in either windowed mode or on a vertical monitor! just stretch the window to achieve this. (vertical works very well for the game)   :)

Retro Space Ball  is currently in EARLY ACCESS

This means that it is not a finished product and that it's subject to change. 

Games can take a long time to make.

Thank you for your patience! :)

GAME INSTRUCTIONS:

Get the orb to the top!

The player has a cyan shield that can be taken by enemies 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 blinking 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.

_______________________________________________________

POWER UPS:

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
