An arcade-styled combination of a puzzle game and a shooter.

How to Play

  • Press O to insert a coin

Chromavaders is far from done.  But it is in a good enough state for people to play it and give useful feedback.  These items are on the burner, in no particular order:

  • Revise some game mechanics to give the player more control
  • An attract mode that properly features gameplay and the tutorial
  • Online high scores
  • Compose music
  • More game modes, for both one player and two
  • Improve the AI
  • Secure licenses for game console dev kits
  • Extra graphical effects (animation, CRT scanlines/screen distortion, etc.)
