Retro Bomb

Steer your missile's at the shield generators! Or, as the hot-seat player, repair the generators before the missiles drop your shields and destroy your pyramid base! New players can connect at any time using the AirConsole login code for your game, so watch out!

This fabulously throwback 80's themed multiplayer bullet storm is brought to you by Pancakes with Abs (Midnight Edition), from the Global Game Jam 2020 in Pittsburgh!
