About This Game

Inspired by classic arcade shooters such as 'Space Invaders' and 'Galaga', Wavecade brings back the original nostalgia feeling to players from arcades, using sleek retro 80's and sci-fi aesthetic.

TIME MANIPULATION:

Bend time at your will by moving up and down the screen. After each wave, the game speeds up a small amount. making the game more challenging on each new wave.

POWERUPS:

You can accumulate multiple powerups at the same time. Collecting the same powerup upgrades it and increases your time with them active.

ABILITIES:

Activate your ability when you are facing near certain destruction to turn the tables of the game. It might be the one thing that saves you from a GAME OVER.
