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

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

I can't use it with my X-Arcade joystick. :(
It simulates keypresses, but they're not the same keys you use. You should really, really implement controls configuration. Pretty please. :>

I agree, Controls configuration is one of the important things we have to add in future updates!
Thanks for the feedback!

Love the game. It brings old-school gameplay but with production values you seldom see in independent games. Good job, Studio Evil!
Also, it's devilishly difficult!
