Oroboros is a classic dodge-n-slash game. No brainiac puzzles to solve... just amazing graphics, sound, and intense action. Rack up insane combo multipliers, slice enemies into pieces, and be nimble with your mouse! The gameplay is at first simple: Some sh!t will hurt you, some will help you, some will do both. Avoid the stuff that hurts, and collect the stuff that helps! Lost yet? To make things more interesting, I added a leveling system that allows you to apply "evo-points" that you earn during each level to various offense/defense stats. The gameplay will be different depending on the upgrade path you choose.

*Harvest the Energy Clusters by eating them with your "face" not your "tail". Always protect your tail!
*Power up your agility and cohesion stats first. Without these, your tail will be slow as molasses.
*Blades and Armor only work "after" you get the power ups, and they degrade rapidly, so be sure to power them up with evo points.
*read the in-game info between levels, it will help you!

Oroboros is an avoider game. That being said, you can still kill things if you use the right weapons.

Seekers - weak against blades
Swarmers - weak against energy bombs (space bar)
Warpers - Invincible, but you can use them as a shield against rocket attacks
Rockets - Use level 3 armor to block them (try to lure enemies into their path for some extra fun!)

mouse to move
space bar for bombs
left-click retracts your tail
(M) key opens menu
(P) key pauses the game

P.S. This game goes on for infinity (hence the name Oroboros). If you really wanted to, you could play it until hell freezes over, Please don't though... There are lots of other great games to check out, and things to do with your life!

P.S.S be sure to check out the score stats in the game menu (M key to open). It will tell you how well you are doing, and how the points are calculated!

Have fun, and be sure to go see the top 25 players in the Champion's Dimension at the end!
Thanks for Playing!

This was unique and that's probably hard to do a fun game a nice find and just an overall unique game here I really like the art style too some good depth here you really pushed the limits but it had some nice end results


I truly enjoyed this game, but it was a bit weird to me. I thought it was too easy. I never once had any trouble with where my tail was. I'm thinking it could be some kind of glitch? I still love the graphics in this. The designs are just so wonderful here. It reminds me of a hydra.

Yes, I know what hydras are (the organism, not the mythical creature). The artwork is so well done in this. The powerups are nice too. While not the greatest, still worth looking at. The sounds seem to fit it quite well.

It must be hard to create a unique game. This is very unique indeed! 4*.

Classic hack and slash indeed! Apart from a likable main character, the controls couldn't be simpler, the gameplay couldn't be smoother. With games like this, it feels like Golden Axe might soon stop being a favorite. Great variation in backgrounds, effects and foes. Looks like there's a lot of content in this game. Keep it going!


the best!

I LOVE it!!!!!!! so awesome :) the music is awesome too!
