A Steampunk multi-directional scrolling shooter set in giant floating arenas. Take on enemy aircraft and turrets, then face giant airship bosses.

An enhanced version will soon be available on Desura! See our page on IndieDB for screenshots:

W - Boost
A - Rotate to aeroplane's left
S - Brake
D - Rotate to aeroplane's right

Mouse - Aim and fire turret
Space - Switch firing modes (bullets/shells)
ESC - Exit current arena

Can also use Arrow keys in place of WASD, and CTRL in place of Space.

Got everything going for it, platform, nostalgia, steampunk and the nomenclature (is that too over the top?) Alliterations abound!


This has to be one of the funniest games that I have played in a very long time. I love the concept, the game play was great and while I don't really care for music in games (I usually mute it), I found myself loving it. And it's one of the few games that offers great replay. When can we expect a sequel?

great, my favorite game

the music, the feel, the gameplay...
it is all wonderful.

It's kind of challenging, but it's the same old plane shooting game. **BORRRING!** Except there is the brake feature that gives you more control and less frustration. But still why do we need MORE of these games? It's time for something NEW.
