About this game

Inspired by classic arcade shooters such as 'Space Invaders' and 'Galaga', Wavecade brings back the original nostalgia feeling to players from arcades, using sleek retro 80's and sci-fi aesthetic.

TIME MANIPULATION:
Bend time at your will by moving up and down the screen. After each wave, the game speeds up a small amount. making the game more challenging on each new wave.

POWERUPS:
You can accumulate multiple powerups at the same time. Collecting the same powerup upgrades it and increases your time with them active.

ABILITIES:
Activate your ability when you are facing near certain destruction to turn the tables of the game. It might be the one thing that saves you from a GAME OVER.

BLOCKS:
Blocks spawn at the top of the playfield and move down the screen. Line up your shots and shoot them for points. They can come in a variety of types:
- Blocks can have armour
- Blocks can change lanes
- Blocks can change their type
- Blocks can spawn randomly, in rows, in a single stream, or in a pattern spanning the playfield.

HAZARDS:
Hazards can appear at any time and can lose you a life if you happen to hit any of them. They can help destroy blocks if you're agile enough, could be a blessing in disguise.

MULTIPLAYER:
Invite or join a friend on Steam and destroy waves of blocks. Your scores are saved to the leader boards with your names. How long can you stay #1?

VARIETY OF GAME MODES:
Start a game with standard arcade rules, or customize your own.

CUSTOMIZATION:
Personalize your player ship and choose from a selection of colours as well as your propulsion effect.

FOR SPEEDRUNNERS:
Set a custom game mode and get the fastest time or highest score for that mode.

A very addicting, intense, colorful wonder. Simple enough to pick up anytime. But hard to master. Plenty of power ups and abilities to mix up each run. Plus there are different game types. Would be nice to have a vertical screen view. Also a color change as the speed changes.

Different than your usual shump game (in a very good way). Everything from game physics to music to sound effects to menu layout is well done 🔥🔥
