Killing zombies never gets old, but sometimes you just need a break.
Get back to some serious old-school gaming with Syder Arcade! Syder Arcade is a love letter to Amiga games of the ‘90s, no coins, no upgrade grinding, just your tenacity and a motherload of alien invaders.
Syder Arcade is a free scrolling, multi directional shoot 'em up, an uncompromised old-school experience, furious, challenging, and straightforward. This game will bring you back in time, when bulky starships were cool and games were about player skill and swearing madly at your computer.
This looks like a cracking good side-scrolling shooter. It doesn't show up on Steam's new releases so I missed it but it does have a Linux icon, I really wish Valve would fix the issue of older games getting ports not showing up in the Linux new releases section. This is actually a game that got greenlit by the Steam community so I hope it's a good choice!
They mentioned Amiga, I now have to try this.
That's some pretty awesome music.
Shooting. This is a no brainer
Dying. Also pretty hard not to do
6 Campaign levels – all filled with space, guns and imminent death
1 Survival mode level. Good luck
2 opposite directions. 3 dimensions is for suckers
3 player starships with more on the way
4 difficulty levels. That means trouble ahead
At least 3 huge capital ships and 1 giant bug-ship. Big is relative, but yeah its big

5 Tons of nostalgia and 16 of Old-School…with a pinch of salt
Amiga-style soundtrack makes the Caleco so jealous
