Return of the Squid

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Far away in a long, long galaxy we find an alien with tentacles in an interplanetary vehicle build to collect carbon. After an extremely long powernap our carbon harvesting squid decides to return home (thus the title of this game). Approaching his home planet the invertebrate realizes that something has dramatically changed. The first new challenge he meets is a dense asteroid field surrounding his beloved home.

Help our eight armed friend trough this annoying but jet, in a destructive way, satisfying obstacle.

Use the semi-strategic map to move from area to area. Move to occupied areas, and let the action begin. Fly around in these ever looping areas and destroy everything to advance though the game. Every time something is destroyed, collectible carbon is left behind; Collect this and use it in the nearest workshop to upgrade the spaceship.

This was cool I like it but do think the upgrade system could have more build up options overall its a fun game and cool mechanics would love to see and play more


Woah, trippy controls, the way the ship doesn't really move but rather the space around the ship! I guess that's the way it really is in space, but it takes some getting used to. The interface is great, the controls easy, and the gameplay is like Asteroids with a twist. Nice work!




dont look at this unless u wanna get the trophys

1st beat the game 2nd kill the enemy 3rd go to the second row and go all the way to the left and 4th do all of the above



pretty fun, but why have the option of upgrading if its not possible to fully upgrade ... idk i like to get my ship fully upgraded on games like these . that was kinda dumb .. but overall game is cool
