All your favorite space shooters, in one game
Spaceshift is a game based around a fictional franchise of shoot-'em-ups of the same name. In it, you step into the cockpit of the last human ship, sent to free the solar system from a race of war-minded red aliens. But before you can fire the killing shot, the alien commander flings you forward in time to a point where his race has a firmer foothold in the universe, and can combat you more easily. What this means is that while the game begins in something resembling an Atari 2600 game, you then move up to a vertically scrolling 8-bit shooter, a side-scrolling 16-bit shooter, an early polygonal rail shooter, and beyond as you try to defeat the alien menace once and for all. But with new eras comes new capabilities of what games can do, leading to ever-expanding gameplay as you unlock mechanics like powerups, alternate weapons, and even the ability to transform into a robot! But your enemies have evolved with you, making sure you'll always have to USE these newfound powers.
Made with love, Spaceshift is a tribute to the history of videogames, with levels modeled so closely to their original counterparts that they could have actually been released during those times! With everything from color palettes and sprite styles to control schemes and hardware capabilities painstakingly recreated, prepare to make all new memories of the good old times as you laser-blast your way to a better universe!
