Description

Take the mechanics of Asteroids®, the power-ups of R-Type®, the space of a mini-MMO, and amp it up with the intensity of a SHMUP. Up to four players can combine forces to defend your solar system from the impending alien threat. Solaroids is a re-imagined version of the classic Asteroids® as a single or local multiplayer shooter that retains the essential premise that inertia is the missing ingredient of many modern top down shooters. One to four players can experience a Campaign mode that progresses from tame introductory levels to epic high-octane space battles that will challenge even the most experienced pilots.
