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.

Wow!

I love the retro look and sound. Kinda brings back memories of my first P.C. It reminded me of Tyrian. And to the last guy, to defeat the final boss keep shooting at him. If yer running low on health, shoot him once and kill the enemy that pops out of his head. After a long while of shooting you should see yer partner pop up and shoot, thats when you have defeated him.

black ball boss

how do you beet the black ball boss at the end of level 3? i cant figure it out


pixeljamgames responds:

Well, he steals your super weapon away, and then you have to shoot him to make him spawn enemies you can shoot in order to upgrade your weapons as fast as possible. Once you get the slice laser or the double rapid fire laser, he's flip out. Once he flips out, you can start doing real damage to him. His skull will flash and all so you know you're getting to him. He's tough so keep at it. get closer to get more shots into him.. finally, Boooom!!! win.
