A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

WE DID IT! WE ARE NOW GREENLIT. THANK YOU SO MUCH

Greenlight Page


Spark is a side-scrolling shmup bullethell mash with a unique firing mechanic. The Campaign gameplay is not well built out yet. It is a cerebral puzzle-like that requires the player to utilize the shooting combos to progress through each stage.

The more built out portion of the game is the wave-based Survival mode, which features pretty typical shmup gameplay. Lots of enemies to shoot, lots of powerups to collect and a ton of beautiful combos! Compete to hit the top spot on the Leaderboards.

DISCLAIMER: The game is still in an alpha state, and may not be stable. There will be bugs as i continually implement new features and polish other ones. I would love feedback on any portion of the game, but please keep in mind it is a work in progress.
