Space Potatoes

This is a take on the robotron genre in space.
I hope you have as much fun playing as I had making it.

The game let's you fight hordes of enemies and bosses in wave based spawns.
While playing you level up and can also select some perks as a toggleable 3 shot weapon and other things.

Make sure you hit your enemies, failing in doing so will take away one from your multiplier! You have also one special weapon per ship available - 2 ships are there in total, 1 needs to be unlocked ( I made this a bit easier though ).

Click here for the Changelog.


Controller Bindings

DPAD : Navigate Menus
Left Stick: Move ship
A: Confirm / Shoot
B: Back / Special Weapon
RB: Call perk menu if a perk point is available
X: Switch weapons if the perk is unlocked
Start: (Un)Pause


Shift - Shoot special weapon
Space - Shoot
A,D or Left, Right - movement
Alt or NumPad0 - Toggle main weapon if the perk is unlocked
Ctrl - Bring up perk menu when a perk point is available


Cutscenes and Intro can be skipped with escape and the intro additionally with any key.


Got suggestion how to improve it?
Want it to be more difficult?
Tell me in the comments, I am eager to update the game based on your feedback and work with you to make this game even more awesome!
