A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The galaxy has a BIG problem: It's a period of civil war and Droid Wrangler and main CPU El Fandango has been acting badly.

And the droids are revolting...

They have taken over the outer systems and you have been tasked to clear them and retrieve the 3 data cores from the 3 deep space stations.

You must travel the systems defeating the rogue droids But BEWARE... They will not go silently!

Created for the SyntaxBomb REBOOT competition:


SyntaxBomb 3rd Place Winner

Featuring a host of barmy droids, some nasty surprises and some sweet QasarBeach soundscapes.

This is going to take nerve, strategy and some serious ship upgrading, so get your mice twitchin for some madcap planet bitchin...

The original GenusPrim can be found here :)
