EDIT: Wow, thanks so much for the front page feature!! :D

After 6 years since "Drakojan Skies Acolytes" was released in 2007, DS is back and rebuilt from the ground up. Inspired by 16-bit arcade games, DS was designed to have that old school shmup gameplay from the 90's.

This demo features the entire second stage of the game, including all the in-game menus, weapons and character select screens.

Because of the way it was developed, it's not possible to stream the entire game online. Instead, it's available for download over at:

The full version includes 4 stages, and is planned to receive an additional 4 stages, with some more content by this Winter, including an all new campaign mode.



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

-2.5 stars due to no storyline.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I went ahead and downloaded the full game, as I noticed what you had said in the description.

I had a pretty good time with it, as usual, so I wanted to congratulate you on a job well done.

What I was most looking forward to was the story mode though, so I'll keep waiting and keep my hopes up for that.

I'd heard there was a possibility for more stages to be released later, too, so that's pretty great.

Rated 2 / 5 stars

Game doesn't save. Sometimes there is no scrap to buy items. Sometimes stage item spams so I can't rescue everyone. Rescuing doesn't give +1 armor like the game says.
Fully upgrade primary by level 2? Only 4 stages? This game seems to lack a lot. Short.

I realize this is just a demo, buy I sure as hell aint paying for a full version which is flawed.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

Boring gameplay, mediocre graphics, and a lack of any kind of progression system (leveling up weapons/characters) makes the gameplay get stale fast. Maybe if this was out 8 years ago, it would be decent, but the genre has moved well past this uninspired gameplay style.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

I believe your "How To Play" menu should tell you what buttons do what, as I died 3-4 times trying to figure out what was what, but really good otherwise.
