 A challenging arcade score attack with a unique mechanic...

Chain together ghosts with your energy beam, then destroy them all at once to earn points. The longer your chain, the bigger your score multiplier.

Destroy endless waves of increasing difficulty, navigate a frantic phantom bullet hell, and unlock 'Robot Mods' to help you climb the leaderboards. Each session lasts just a few minutes! It's perfect to kill some time (and ghosts) during a lunch break or to compete with friends!

Humanity is long gone, but our wretched souls still wander the Earth. 

  • THE GRAPPLE BEAM - Chain ghosts together, destroy them all at once, and even absorb enemy bullets for energy using this unique new game mechanic.
  • ENDLESS BULLET HELL - The spectral onslaught never stops! Fight ever-increasing enemy numbers until your little robot chassis can take no more.
  • POWER-UPS - Blast ghosts with EMP shockwaves or rocket-boost to safety. Choose how you power-up your abilities in unique ways to make each run play differently.
  • CUSTOMISE YOUR ROBOT - Unlock 'Robot Mods' to fine-tune your abilities. Customise your hit points, speed, battery power and more, with over 100 possible combinations.
  • UNLOCK DIFFICULTY MODES - 3 apocalyptic levels that push your skills to the limit, each one more intense and challenging than the last.
  • NUKE THE APOCALYPSE - When all else fails, launch a nuke and make the apocalypse even more apocalypsed.
  • LEADERBOARDS & ACHIEVEMENTS - Compare your best scores against the world! Submit your scores by signing into a GameJolt account or using a guest ID. Unlock GameJolt trophies or just use the in-built achievement list. It's up to you!

no more steams key available here, I'll wait patiently to play it :)

Sorry about that! I've just loaded some more keys. Hope you enjoy the game. ๐Ÿ˜

This is a super fun game, but it won't accept my gamejolt login =\

Thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying it!

Sorry to hear about the login issue. Do you get an error message of any kind?

Just "wrong username and/or token".

I assume "token" = password, right?

Yeah token is password.

Hmm... Just tried it myself and it's no longer working for me either, even with a password I've double-checked on the GameJolt website itself.

I'll look into this ASAP and let you know if I find a fix. Thanks for bringing it to my attention and apologies for the inconvenience.

Awesome, thanks! Good to know it's not just a quirk of my setup. 

Fortunately, the game works just fine without it ^_^

Hey, sorry for the long silence on this. I didn't find any solution, but I just tried it again and I'm now able to login OK. Perhaps it was something that got fixed in the GameJolt back-end? Not sure, but hopefully it works for you too now!
