Reviews

“Retrobooster is an extremely polished indie game with excellent graphics that offers many hours of challenging gameplay.”
TruePCGaming

“Each level is unique in its own way; some will have heavy puzzle elements whilst others will have legions of enemies to clear out. The differences between them mean that no two levels ever feel the same, and they are always throwing new ideas your way.”
God is a Geek

“RETROBOOSTER seems designed to screw up your life, but honestly, and to your face, without half-truths or tricks.”
Nivel Oculto

About This Game

A tough-as-nails cave-flyer for players who want a solid challenge. Stay on your toes or this galaxy will devour you.

Retrobooster is an exceptionally difficult 2.5D shooter, focused on skill-based flying and enemy blasting. Pilot your nimble thrust ship through bizarre worlds littered with vicious enemies. Each new level takes you farther from home and, ultimately, into the deadliest reaches of the galaxy. Retrobooster also has speed-flying challenges, puzzles, juicy monsters, a warped sense of humor, and a healthy dose of bullet hell action. Survive to the end if you can, and use your new flying skills to replay for high scores.
