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.


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.

I played this awhile ago...still cool. I like the idea of how when one of you dies your bro comes in and the game still goes on. Graphics just resemble the retro style of before... and it fits making it catchy.
Music is fiting and makes me in the mood to play.
Love it.

I could recognize this style and I really like it! I think the best thing about it is how the graphics just come together so well. I appreciate all the little things going on. It reminds me a lot of Galaga. I have fond memories of playing that on an arcade game I found in Church. Yeah, Church...

The sounds were perfect. It was great to see how everything was just set up. It did take a little bit for me to get used to the controls, but I got it eventually. The title makes it look like a Mario game. It's anything but.

Amazing retro

Galaga is the first one I think of with this game.

I think the best part of this game by a long shot are the sound effects/music. They are amazing... they really capture the essence of this game... incredible.
