The year is 2300. A mysterious robotic space force has attacked humanity. And only one ace pilot stands in their way:

STRATO RUNNER...

------------

This is a prototype of a bullet-hell shooter I'm working on, with a 16-bit retro aesthetic. Right now, only the first level is included, and a few features (like settings) aren't yet functional. This demo includes 7 different enemies, tons of waves, and a boss.

------------

Controls: mouse to move, space to fire, and A for shields. Pick up coins to refill your shield. Currently you can't rebind controls, but that will be added in future releases.

HLSL RNG function: Keijiro Takahashi

Music: Supernatural (Alex Beroza), Drive Fast (Three Chain Links), Andrew Anime (urmymuse)

Small update: I've made the game a little easier! Give it a try in the downloads section!

Hello! I loved your demo, it was beautifully designed and super fun to play even though I wasn't quite skilled enough to make it to the boss ^-^' I made a let's play of your game here~

Hi, thanks for the review! I haven't had much time to work on this recently, but I will definitely try to lower the difficulty as that has been one of the main critiques.

You're welcome! I'm glad to hear you'll work on it in the future, good luck to you :D
