Vulture is a vertical shooter inspired by classic vertical scrolling arcade shoot em ups. It introduces a block-based construction mechanic, allowing player to collect blocks to build bigger and better ships, as well as a destruction mechanic that allows ships to have blocks blown off but keep flying.

Patch 1.1.2 & 1.1.1

We have released patch 1.1.2 and 1.1.1 these patches dramatically update the tutorial to provide a more interactive experience when starting a new game. These updates also have multiple minor item balances fixes and UI improvements.

Drone Editor: We have made it so you can visit the shop from the drone editor to streamline designing new drones. We have also moved the copy drone button and removed the redundant erase button.

Endless Mode: We have changed the way the endless mode places ships to allow to use a new "encounters" system to make endless more interesting.

Gameplay: We have improved acceleration of all ships.

Patch Notes:

  • Significant improvements to endless mode patterns and encounters
