>> 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!

Super!

C'est un super bon jeu qu'on devient vite accro! Mais après, ça commence un peu à être répétitif à partir du level 5 à 20... On commence sérieusement à vouloir du nouveau. Sinon, les graphiques, la musique, les bruits etc., sont vraiment trop cool! L'auteur doit améliorer certains aspects comme ajouter du nouveau dans le jeu, et pour que ça ne soit pas répétitif et mettre davantage de PowerUp! À part ça, je le recommande à tous! (french)

It's a very good game. But, the author need to put more of variaty because it's too repetif and need to put more PowerUp. The effect, the music and the graphics was so great! The game is perfect, but need just a little bit of arrangment. (english)

Whoa!

Wow... That was just amazing. The heavy use of particle explosions really made the already pwning game even better. The music was awesome and the difficulty was perfect. 5/5, 10/10!

Reminded me of Geometry Wars

Everything was in the style of Geometry Wars; the particle effects, techno soundtrack and ship, which was fine until Wave 5 where you just copied the pinwheels from the game. I only made it Wave 7, so I don't know if any of the other characters made it into the game.

I really enjoyed the Lighting Power Up, that would be handy for the surround patterns in Geometry Wars.

Screen changes where weird, but what was the oddest thing about the game was the auto fire. Auto fire when all of the enemies are just one hit to kill made the first levels too easy.

But the game is fun and looks good and you added some of your own ideas to the game too, congratulations on winning Mochi Friday too.
