A downloadable game

A throwback to the classic quarter eating arcade games of the 80's. Bit Blaster XL is a retro styled, addictive, and fast paced arcade shoot 'em up!


• Easy to learn, simple arcade style Controls to turn your ship, boost, and brake. Keyboard + Gamepad Support. (not a twin stick shooter)

• A variety of wicked Power ups like Split Shot, Heat seekers, Lasers, and much more to assist your survival.

• Screen clearing Bombs, Ship Shields and Boost Pickups to help you survive longer.

• Collect coins to unlock new ships with unique attributes to give you an edge in battle.

• Endless survival (infinite) score chasing game play with a classic 'bullet hell'-like arcade style.

• Totally rad and ridiculously basic retro pixel Graphics.

• Featuring gameplay directly inspired by some of my favorites, such as; Luftrausers, Asteroids, Space Invaders, Galaxian and Geometry Wars.

• Unique chip tune songs for each ship by Spiff Tune.

• An alternate Manual Fire mode for those that want a different experience.

Game play:

• Your ship can not stop moving; so you must turn it left and right and use your boost/brake to keep from crashing into an ever increasing amount of enemies.

• Your ship is always shooting, so make sure to pick up more ammo and the wide variety of awesome power ups and pick ups to help you survive longer.

• Get the highest score you can while collecting coins to buy more ships that are faster, shoot faster, or have more shields.

The in game audio/SFX was provided by my mouth and some royalty free SFX from FreeSFX. The soundtrack is by the artist "Spiff Tune"

Thanks for playing my game, I really hope you have some fun with it. Please don't hesitate to contact me with ANY feedback. :)
