About This Game

CounterAttack: Uprising is a Scrolling Space Shooter (SHMUP/STG) with deep customization, local 4 player CO-OP, a custom level and campaign editor, and cross-platform CO-OP online play for up to 8 players.

Earth is under attack! The Automations, humanity's own creation, have rebelled. They will stop at nothing short of the complete annihilation of their former masters. There is but one hope, the Experimental Space Fighter program. Fight solo or team up for intense co-op action, 1 - 4 player locally or 2 - 8 players online, unlock upgrades, use powerful ultimate abilities, enhance your ship the way you want, and save the Earth from annihilation.

8 Player Cross-Platform Online CO-OP and 4 Player Local CO-OP


All levels, modes, leaderboards, and difficulties are available in CO-OP. Use support attachments to work together, or set powerups on free-for-all and grab them before anybody else does. Use Auras and support attachments to help your friends, or focus only on damage and blast a way through. If you die you become a turret on a surviving ship to continue blasting.

Create New Weapons to Destroy the Automatons

600+ attachments including engine turbos, Support Fighters, Auras, Weapon Replacements, Attack Drones, Weapon Modifiers, Shields, Evasion, Critical Hit Change, and more! Weapons can combined to create new and unique abilities. Millions of combinations with some powerful (and sometimes wacky) effects! Go all followers and turrets, or buildup weapons that pack a deadly punch. Show off your creations on the workshop, or try one created by somebody else!

Choose from the 8 pilots with unique ultimate and innate abilities


Each pilot has a unique ship, ultimate weapon, and innate ability. Ayumi has the ultimate Tactical Nuke and Analysis ability, Biff as the ultimate Big Biff Laser and Big Boy ability, Marcus has the ultimate Mesonwave and Meson Blades ability, Joe has the ultimate Overcharge and Action Joe ability, Sarah has the Quantium Shield and Survivor ability, Sloane has the Fighter Squadron and a Sloane Aura ability, Carl has the ultimate Plasma Strike and Rocker ability, Jinx has the ultimate Hack Wave and Autorekt ability.

Battle through a branching 32 level campaign and 3 endless survival modes


31 bosses (32 if you count the sun). Branching campaign, 4 difficulties, 3 modes, catering from novices to veterans. Easy to pickup, hard to master.
