I think this game is a bit too easy!
WAR WIND is an open world shmuptroidvania game with a focus on challenging , yet rewarding bullet hell boss fights- and achieving a sense of exploration in a vast open world . Fight your way through 4 different areas and unlock new ships by killing bosses !
- Use the arrow keys to move
- Use the X key to shoot
- Use the Z key to dash
Behind the Scenes
WARWIND was solo developed over a month to take part in the Lazy Dev's "SHMUP Showcase" . I'd like to thank everyone that offered feedback on the game during development , particularly in the Lazy Devs discord community .
Unfortunately I didn't get the time to make the final boss in time for the deadline , so be sure to keep in touch with me at 0xFFB3 on twitter . It shouldn't take too long , and I'll be updating this page when it's ready !
I have the game marked as paid to download , but if you really want to mod the game and genuinely can't afford the $2 message me on twitter and we can chat !

in the weird money thing at the start how do i accecpt it and get out of the promt im confused
Pretty cool bullet hell. It's nice and challenging.
the second boss -_- pls nerf
It's definitely a jump in difficulty ! haha~~
might need to look into it if more people feel this way though
Would it be possible to make the pico-8 cart available for download?
Absolutely ! the cart is already available for download on this page for 2USD , if you genuinely can't front the cost send me a dm on twitter <3
Really innovative take on the genre ! I was surprised by the "recoil" you get from shooting but I think I like it, it makes the game more strategic ! I love the idea of zones you can explore too.
Also, is music planned for the game ?
I'm glad you came to like the recoil mechanic ! I wanted to make shooting a bit more of a decision rather than just holding the button the entire time .
Music is definitely planned ! and will probably come to the game alongside the final boss
Super shmup. i love it. i really like how the shooting makes the plane more sluggish and presses you backewards, nice touch.
Thank you ! I wanted to make the game feel a bit different to a shmup- so I've been getting a lot of comments from people who didn't like that feature all !
So It's really appreciated you saying that you like it !
Thank you for playing <3
