A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Our species has survived more than 3000 years of dissension, fighting, and self-destruction. Eventually, we have learned to leave together with nature and each other, but now mankind faces an entirely new enemy, one that has never been seen before.

Nobody knows where they came from but we realized quickly we have to fight to survive.

A small talented scout team gave their lives to locate the base of the alien intruders, scientists working day and night created an enhanced version of our probably biggest invention of all time, a teleport that can send the brave human fighters right inside the enemy base.

But the crux is just coming right now, our heroes must search and acquire all the possible information about the enemy base to hopefully be able to destroy it ...

A tribute to the classic side-scrolling Arcade shoot’-em-up games with a modern look, physics-based movement and some challenging twists that will test your speed, reflexes, patience, and memory at the same time.
