You are Eris, the evil goddess of strife and discord, who once ruled over humanity with an iron fist. Millenia ago, the forces of good imprisoned you in the void between dimensions. You have been unable to break out... Until today. Due to a planetary alignment that happens only once every ten thousand years, the fabric of reality has been torn, providing you with an escape route. However, the legions of light will try their best to hinder you on your path to freedom. Blast them to smithereens!

This is my Game Gale 2010 entry, a vertical scrolling shooter made with the lite version of Game Maker 8. I'm not exactly proficient with this engine, so potential players should avoid setting their expectations too high.

Gameplay Tips

Added a "Gameplay Tips" section which hopefully will make some of the game's mechanics easier to grasp.

Have fun dying over and over and over and over!

This looks sweet! I'm always looking for a good space shooter to play when short on time.
Love these kinds of games!

I'm not big on scrollers, but I'll give this a try. * Downloads *

I think I dreamt of this game last night.


It was a nightmare, I assume.
You should release a version that lets you spam that Special Attack because that's all I did when I played (even killed myself to pick up one of those special balls so that I could activate it again)
Is it just me, or is this game incredibly hard? I gave this one a try, and maybe I'm just not as good at platformers and shooters as I once was, because I died way too many times just in the first level. Half the time it felt I was trying to dodge out fireballs that literally filled the screen, and wasn't able to take the time to fire back. And if you take the time to even pause for a split second to attack, you risk running into a fireball of some sort. The fireballs, or whatever attacks the enemy is using, fills the screen in a matter of a couple of seconds, and you spend way too much time moving to dodge them out, it's almost impossible to react.
I find it super hard too. I played it 7 times, and once I got as far as the second boss. But I guess it's what this genre is like. I'm not used to it.

It's hard, but it's the good kind of hard.

Of course people skilled at shooters/bullet hell games will probably find it to be incredibly easy.
Maybe it's me then. I'm used to the classic shooters of old (Space Invaders, Defender, Galaga), but I found this one to be too hard to be enjoyable.
Just finished this. Took me about six or seven tries to beat the whole thing, the last four or so tries dying at the hands of the last boss. I'm slightly accustomed with bullet hell games so this wasn't frustratingly difficult for me but it will be for players unaccustomed to this type of shooter. For my last try, I really tried to not lose any continues before that last boss. Because that guy doesn't mess around! I lost like two continues trying to beat him, but I beat him. I expected it to be longer, have more power-ups, enemy formations and have more of an ending but then I realized it's a 2-week game, so yeah.

Here's a tip: keep on the top half of the screen. You will knock out the toughest enemies quicker this way and they just shoot downward, so there's no way for them to kill you once they've floated past you.

I must suck at shooters, because I cannot complete that first stage without losing a continue. Very, very challenging game...

Well, I got to the second boss. This is easily one of the hardest game I've ever seen.

Edit: Almost beat him, too. Ran out of continues and the delicious specials they bring.

Edit 2: Made it deep into the final level with 0 continues...then got pwned! That second boss' second form is just so brutal.
Not bad but I think it should be a faster game. Everything(including yourself) moves so slow that it's almost boring. Also the First boss is overpowerd, he kicked my ass when he started shooting bullets from all directions including the bottom of the screen.

Still, nice game :)
