Description

 

Retro Axios a shoot 'em up game just like the ones from the 80's but with neon colors from the 90's in the spirit of Jarvis, DeMar and Minter.

 

History

 

After the release of Gladiex in early summer 2014. Sketching on a new shoot 'em up started. The idea and ambition was to recreate a game with feelings from the 80's in the spirit of Jarvis, DeMar and Minter. It all culminated in Retro Axios. A game with combined vector and bitmap type graphics in cheerful neon colors and bubbling sounds that makes you think back to a time when arcade games borrowed characteristic sounds from the pinball machines. Now one and a half years later it is time for Retro Axios to finally be released on iOS.
