Star Gods

An old school vertical shoot 'em up

According to the developers at @jopstudios, “Star Gods is an old school vertical shoot ’em up built for Windows.

This game is being developed around a “near miss” mechanic. Grazing enemy bullets and enemy ships increase the power, or Kinetic Energy, of your ship. The more Kinetic Energy you build, the stronger you become.

In this genre, it’s common during hectic battles to narrowly avert disaster by squeezing in between several projectiles. Why not make a shooter where you are rewarded by being an adept dodger?”.

  1. This game looks impossible, too! I mean I like a shmup as much as the next guy, I just wish somebody would make one I could play. Graphics are amazing, though.
