Irukandji is a fun score attack shooter, set in an abstract underwater trench. You fly your ship against the flow of hundreds of amazing procedurally animated sea monsters, blasting your way to the final showdown – a Giant Enemy Crab! As you play, you unlock a variety of different ships each with its own unique weaponry and play style which offers a different way to play the game. There are also 10 challenging achievements to attempt, and online scores for each ship.

Four great games, one crazy low price, all available on Steam, Desura and direct download. Indie Royale is a new indie games deal site inspired by the awesome HiB (run by us! in partnership with In this bundle we have Fate of the World, a tough and extremely addictive strategy game from Red Redemption that asks you to save the entire world from crisis. We have NightSky, a fantastic arcade puzzler from Nicalis and a past IGF Seamus McNally Grand Prize finalist.

Next up is Scoregasm from Charlie's Games, a brilliant space shooter that will get you a little hot under the collar with its hordes of bullets, enemies and explosions. Finally, we have the Ben There, Dan That! and Time Gentlemen, Please! adventure game combo, both from Size Five Games. That's right - this bundle has 5 games in it, rather than 4!

That's over $40 worth of games we've got for you right there, and we recently added all DLC for Fate of the World and two bonus games from Charlie. To grab it, Indie Royale is the place to do so.

Bleh, needs pulseaudio. Money wasted, should've tried demo first.

Solution for the sound problem: use padsp, as the french guy below suggests.
padsp ~/desura/common/irukandji/

Nice game, I liked the visual style very much. The music is also pleasant, somehow it felt a bit like 90s techno to me. However, I have one question. Does this game literally have only one level? (The one with the crab in the end). I have already unlocked 3 ships, but they all play against the same enemies. Somemore I am confused by "Level 1" sign at the beginning. Do I have to complete "Level 1" with all ships to gain access to "Level 2" or is this all the game has to offer?

Cute little game. The different ships keeps it fresh and the music is nice. The female voice going "YES" is rather annoying though. Runs great in Kubuntu 11.10 with a generic Logitech gamepad btw.

Please make an update to change ~/Irukandji to ~/.Irukandji , like Scoregasm.

Charlie's Shooters are an insane and relentless quest for perfection. Irukandji is no exception.
It may not be as addictive as Bullet Candy Perfect or Scoregasm, but it's a nice addition, and it will provide you with a healthy dose of fun, bullets and achievements.
