    Zirthian Alpha Build 0.5 is being released through the Apple Store Test Flight to a small group testers. There is still some room left - sign up here!


    • Two types of enemy with different behaviours - one enemy hovers over the same spot while another launches directly at you.
    • Two types of weapon: Use lasers for rapid fire and gamma ray to turn everything in your path to dust
    • The player has shields that disappear by taking damage. Having no shields means instant death upon the next hit.
    • A defensive Renew Shields ability that gives you more shields
    • A double missile power-up: Pick it up to become even more dangerous!
    • Explosions: Watch enemy ships blow up and their pilots fall frantically to their death
    • A procedurally - generated world: Terrain, enemies, power-ups - nothing stays the same as you replay a level
    • Checkpoint system: Once you clear a check point, you can choose to re-spawn from it after you die
    • A setting for easy and hard difficulty
    • Cool arcade-style sounds
