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.

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

The demo is coming next week, we are working on it.
The game supports different resolutions, and quality settings, you can change them in the options menu.

Lower res supported is 1024 x 768.

Also you can fake a c64 look using the *retro* visual modes :D

Thanks for your answer, i bought it game is good but you forgot to add control configuration and when i play with joypad it shows keyboard binds but thats not big problem. Other than that, game is a little to hard for me. But i like anyways! Good job.
