About This Game

Absolute Blue is a 2D shoot'em'up that was first released in 2005. Since that was quite a while ago, I decided to offer the game for free to everyone. Please keep in mind that it was created in a different time - nevertheless, I think that it can still be quite fun to face the attacking alien horde in your space fighter. I hope some of you still has some fun hours with it ;-)

Right now I'm working on my most ambitious project to date, so if you want to support me, please check out Tiny Thor and wishlist it:
