GAME INFO (controls, powerup info, etc) is in the "info" section on the main game screen.

If you want to play this game bigger (fullscreen), faster and with higher quality audio, please visit games.pixeljam.com to get the downloadable home game. Mac and PC versions available.

STORY:

The Gamma Brothers spend their days working in a huge space station near Jupiter. What could they possibly be working on? Something very important, no doubt.

The Gamma Brothers also understand the importance of not working. Every day at quitting time they hop into their commuter vehices for the long, difficult journey back to earth. Every day, to and from work, they must survive many vicious and clever alien attacks!

It is up to YOU to guide the Gamma Brothers home. Prepare yourself for the ultimate space commute battle!

CONTROL : A,W,S,D fires in 4 directions, and directional keys move. You can reconfigure this under the game's "info" section. The controls may seem strange at first, but it's necessary for the more intense parts of the game. You'll get used to it quickly.

In the hangar, press 'return' to select your player.

Collect coins to buy better weapons from the little orange space capitalist who shows up every now and then.

Shoot asteroids to collect gems, which may come in handy later.

Your bro will come by every now and then for a tag team. This will probably help out if you take too much damage.

If you want to jump right into crazy action, use the level password GOLVL2.

Retro, awesome.

Oh wow, this game was amazing.
Felt really old school like I was playing my nes again.
After figuring out what was going on. Couldn't find the instructions, not that I really looked for it.

The point is that this game was done amazingly well, I didn't get bored from it, it had life and was just all around great.
Good job!

Nice game.

Nice game, quite long and fun. I lost at that thing where everything goes dark and there's the circle thing with eyes, mainly cause I was getting hit by things I couldn't even see! By the way, what are gems for? Points or something?


pixeljamgames responds:

The gems come in handy if you lost one of your bros during the game. If so, you get a visit by a grim reaper looking dude towards the end of the game.
