ZOE Begone!

Hand-drawn bullet-hell! 

A frenetic shooter combining the run-and-gun mechanics of Metal Slug with the infinite loops and shmup-ing of Resogun, wrapped up with old-fashioned drawn-on-film style animation. Fight your own creator as the artist bears down on you with pen and paintbrush!


All Zoe wants is some peace and quiet, but she's gonna have to deal with the pesky animator who keeps painting enemies and being generally annoying before she'll be able to get some rest.

Destroy the animator's tools, blast their creations to bits, collect Apples to spend on Power Ups, rack up your multiplier, and reclaim your serene surroundings to help Zoe get back to normality as fast as you can (and bag yourself a high score in the process)!


- Fly and dash, if you have enough Energy, to get to the next enemy and keep your chain going!...
- or run on the ground if you don't.
- Refill your Energy or Health and reclaim your territory by pounding the ink dots!
- Use your Dash charge to escape tricky situations or quickly take out stronger enemies...
