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.

Well Done! Cool Retro Graphics!

Your coding was flawless as far as I can tell. The retro style is really cool and nostalgic. You put in a few scenes that gave the game a simple story. I really liked this one! You've done a really fine job! Easily a five!



Haha, great, but too retro for me

this is a great game code-wise, but it's a bit too retro for me. very well done, though. the coins flying through the space made it a bit too retro for me, though, sorry.



Really Good!

Reminds me of Galaga. Oh yeah, it's addictive, too



Great job

It reminded me of my old childhood memories.. when i used to sit with my friend brett and just play the atari 2600. Good times. It brought back a lot of good and bad memories to me. Thank you for the rememberance. Overall it was a good game, i spent my time playing it. I liked the whole concept but that music started to give me a headache. Great game though. Peace.



Holy crap....

...That was awesome!

You really nailed the Atari feel and the controls were just right for the format. Loved the atmosphere in this one; makes me want to fire up the 2600.
