Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 215 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

TRACTRON 2020

Author Comments

You're in DEEP SPACE surrounded by ALIENS with nothing but your wits - and your TRACTOR BEAM!


TRACTRON 2020 is a throwback to arcade invader-style shmups of the early 80s with a TWIST. Reel enemies in and use their weapons AGAINST THEM! THREE unique weapons! SEVEN levels of difficulty! How high can you score?


CONTROLS:

[ARROW KEYS] - MOVE

[Z] - SHOOT

[X] - TRACTOR BEAM


TIPS:

-Your regular shot can't HURT enemies, but it does make them ANGRY - use it to lure them in and TRACTOR BEAM them!

-Enemies will shoot at you in later stages, but don't worry - you can use CAPTURED ENEMIES to BLOCK BULLETS!

What would you get when you mix Galaga with some Space Invaders, you get this masterpiece.

This is a very interesting twist on the Galaga/Galaxian type shooters. It takes a little getting used to, but it's fun once you figure it out. Controlling with a keyboard is the only drawback, as it is with other action games.
