Escape from a tyrant government and save the planet Shambala. Be the resistance! Starexcess is a retro-looking vertical shoot 'em up inspired by the 16-bit era. Take on enemy armies and dodge frenetic shots in this shoot 'em up for one or two players in a local ofline co-op.


Features:

  • Each ship has two weapons, main and secondary, which can be alternated. But beware, changing weapons influences your speed!
  • Supports 1 or 2 players (local - offline coop). Play side by side, like old days.
  • Different ships with different weapons, health and speed. Choose the one that suits you best.
  • Seven levels with waves of enemies randomly chosen. The waves will not appear in the same order as previous games, encouraging the development of player skill.
  • Pixel art style. Drawn pixel by pixel.
