Killing zombies never gets old, but some times you just need a break.

Get back to some serious Old-School gaming with Syder Arcade!
A love letter to Amiga the games of the 90', no coins, no upgrade grinding, just your tenacity and a motherload of alien invaders.

Syder Arcade is a free scrolling, multi directional shoot 'em up, an uncompromised old-school experience, furious, challenging, straightforward. This game will bring you back in time, when bulky starships were cool and games were about player skill and swearing madly at your computer.

If you like Syder Arcade please support our project on Steam Greenlight.

The time has come to launch Syder Arcade HD on mobile platforms!
Studio Evil and Alisade Warp Industries will be happy to teleport the game directly into your iOS and Android devices starting January 28, for a small fee of 0.99$ or equivalent credits in your galactic region.

Our retro-inspired shmup is a simple game, just shoot aliens and be awesome in space with bullets made of neon. But remember to avoid glowing stuff that is not coming from your ship.

Syder Arcade has no grind, no player exploiting multi-layered upgrade systems, no IAPs. Just 6 levels of fast paced challenge, featuring beautiful visuals and retro-electronic soundtack.

We are really excitet about this release, it's our first official mobile game ... but most of all now that the mobile version is ready we can finally get some rest.

Who am I kidding.

We've got new content on the way and an OUYA version to build :D

IndieGameStand and a brand new Android Version!

I cannot promise you that as 100% sure.
But we will do our best to add local co-op sooner or later.

I really like your graphic direction, it all looks very detailed and smooth in my opinion. It would be absolutely mindblowing if you would create a real-time strategy game similar to Empire at War or Space Pirates and Zombies with exactly this great graphic style. I wish a great sucess with this game!

So does Syder also support singleplayer and real-time strategy fleet movement? Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love your whole concept but a game with this graphic style and fleet movement, planet management and so on would defintely be a great one.

Well right now it's just a prototype, but I'm afraid it will be more on the action-rpg side.

Something like gta2 in space with some tactical rpg in it.

Awesome game, only tried the demo so far but I really like the feel and look of it.
There's only one issue, there needs to be a restart level choice when you die.
Too many menus to go through to get back into the action ;D
(perhaps for the best, or I'd still be playing)

Glad you like the demo, and thanks for your feedback!

I agree with you, there are a couple of things to improve in those interfaces, especially in survival mode. We will try to fix it in one of the next updates! :D

We will probably release the sountrack in the future, but we don't have any actual plans right now. Glad to see your interest!
