Axonite is your ship and you need to blast your way for as long as you can.
The foes will come fast and furious. They will bank and turn and rotate around you firing and doing all sorts of other nasty things.
With immersive audio (provided by QasarBeach) and a bostin 16 bit house soundtrack that will make your Amiga cry and your Fairlight weep, QasarBeach has been heavily used to get the most out of every beat...
Enjoy both PC and MacOS versions with fully configurable keyboard and joystick support!
With 4 difficulty settings and an initial 3 levels to fight your way through each with a more fiendish end of level Boss to beat with the wet end...
Featuring super smooth multi-parallax scrolling. Large number of shots on screen and more enemies you can shake your middle finger at. Plus the shop!
Want to visit the shop, then collect those power-ups and coins and not forgetting Bart your droidly shop keeper who just might have something you want... or not?
Relive that 80's retro feeling. Finger mashin' sticky trigger, ear blastin fun...
You know you want to...

No need to install, it should just run.
if you hit quarantine issues with MacOS. Do the following:
Unpack the zip file.
Use finder to move "Axonite.app" to your Applications folder.
Do NOT start the game yet, or it will be quarantined!
Open terminal and copy/paste the line below then press enter:
sudo xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine "/Applications/Axonite.app"
On MacOS, to bypass the security check you only need to launch the game the first time by Right clicking and picking "Open", instead of double clicking. The "Open" button only shows up if you right click.
But let me know if you have an issues and I'll get onto it...

would like to point out that this works great under linux wine minus the extremely slow game loop.
Please consider building a Linux version.

How? How can you create so much stuff?
Anyway, on MacOS, to bypass the security check you only need to launch the game the first time by Right clicking and picking "Open", instead of double clicking. The "Open" button only shows up if you right click.
