Super Hydorah, our next game, is on Greenlight! Please, support us!



The most challenging shmup of the Spanish indie scene is preparing to land on Steam. Only you, our most skilled and deadly pilot of the galaxy, can help the Delta Force fighter ships to face the menace of the Meroptians, a race of biomechanical beings who attacked the star Omnios and put the whole galaxy in danger.

Super Hydorah is designed to offer a challenging and memorable experience, with the wisdom and richness of traditional shmup classics like R-Type, Gradius or Turrican as its foundations. It’s a game just like the retro classics: straightforward entertainment which dares the player in every stage; a wide set of different combat situations with unique content that will surprise you and keep you engaged for hours. Super Hydorah is a non-linear game, and there are alternative routes – with multiple endings for better replayability. You will have to become a true master of space warfare with your Delta Lance in order to unveil all the secrets and alternative routes of this intense SHMUP!

And that’s not all: Super Hydorah features both single and cooperative multiplayer modes. In its intense co-op mode, you will have to work together with a friend in order to overcome the Meroptian threat!

If you feel like supporting us, please, visit our Greenlight page and give us your YES. Help Super Hydorah get Greenlit!

“An exquisite homage to the likes of Ghosts n' Goblins, Tiger Road, Willow and other 80s classics, Maldita Castilla takes old-school design to the next level and dares to amend some of the flaws of the old masters. A triumph of authenticity, good design and challenge.”

“Graphically Maldita Castilla EX is beautiful; so much love and care was put into every pixel on the screen and the addition of scanlines create an almost perfect arcade experience”
