About This Game


As Kestrel, you will travel through different worlds in an attempt to reach the highest order of the cosmos. You will fend off the many entities trying to stop you. Collect the rhombic shards spread across the different worlds to purchase upgrades and equip more powerful weapons.

In a departure from the typical shoot'em up, Kestrel does not force the auto-scroll mechanic that is present in the majority of the genre. Patience and strategy win out over speed and brute force.

With over 50 upgrades and infinite lives, Kestrel puts you in a position for success. A top down shoot'em up with bullet hell and RPG elements, Kestrel attempts to scratch an itch that you might know you have. Fly, shoot, die, upgrade, repeat.
