>> 02/02/2010 - RetroShoot360 will be on Newgrounds.com soon!
>> 01/15/2010 - The sequel to Retroshoot, RetroShoot360 is coming soon!

Hi! This is my first flash shoot-em-up game! I wanted to code a game that was easy to play, fun to look at, and also be challenging. I'd be very impressed if someone can play the game through without using any continues. Some of the levels can be kind of wacked out, but that's the spirit of the game. Nothing too complicated, just move the mouse around, avoid being hit and shoot everything.

It won the mochi friday game of the week which is cool. I hope you peeps enjoy the game.

Here's the "official" description. :) lol..

RetroShoot - Grab your mouse and shoot stuff!

RetroShoot is an easy to play shooter that's 100% mouse controlled with auto fire. Evade the retronauts and their fire, and battle your way through level after level of fast action game play. Along the way, collect power up orbs for massive weapon upgrades and bombs.

Features:
Colorful graphics with a neon retro look.
Visually exciting particle based explosions.
Over 40 levels with lots of variety.
Pulsating music track and sound fx.

Can you battle your way through all 40 levels?
Can you defeat the onslaught of the retronauts?
Can you unlock all 4 mini games?

04/17 Update!
That nasty bug causing the game to not run, should be nailed! But make sure you have Flash Player 10 installed as well. :)

04/15 Update!
Press "M" to toggle the music off/on.
Mystery error causing the game to not work sometimes should be fixed!

Awesome!

Gotta say though... most of the spheres are useless... like the mini ships & radial shot burst (which aren't even powerful enough to kill anything). It's really annoying to not get your main power-ups when you need them... there were several times where I found myself in high levels using the initial single-shot gun... which pretty much spells "game over". I find I ALWAYS die once on level 20... there's just no way to avoid their initial rush... might just be me though.

Great game!

It's certainly a great game with mesmerizing visuals.
That being said, I find that there simply isn't enough firepower. My shots usually weaken before I can get a shot power-up. I find myself having to dodge and move around between enemies alot more often than actually shooting them, and that's honestly not that fun.
Please do something about that.

nice

stunning visuals and fun game. To be honest i was a little shocked when spheres appeared. My only problem is that two of the power ups are almost useless five minutes into the game. Both of the spread shots. I would rather have less power ups but only the other three.

Whoa...

You haven't lived yet until you've played Hyper mode.

Btw, I can sum this game up in one word: Trippy.
