ZEPTON is a 2d voxel shmup by REZ.


You have to survive as long as possible to an always increasing number of enemies.


how to play

on title screen, use Z/X, C/V or N/M to start a new game.
to pause game and access option menu, press P or return.

key control:
→ arrows: move your spaceship (you can invert y-axis in the pause menu)
→ Z/C/N: launch missile (if the target "lock" is red, the missile will go automatically on it)
→ X/V/M: fire bullets (your bullets will hit something if the target is red)
→ Z+X / C+V / N+M: ©LASER BEAM OF DOOM™ (pump spaceship energy, do not abuse!)

mouse control:
→ cursor move: move your spaceship
→ left button: fire bullets
→ right button: launch missile
→ left+right button: ©LASER BEAM OF DOOM™


1.0 released!:
→ added bonuses! the blue one increase your energy by 10 points, and the red
one (known as ©SUDDEN_DEATH™) kill instantly all enemies on screen!
→ a lot more code optimizations, the voxel farplane was increased a bit.

0.9.2 update:
→ a brand new and deadly weapon! the mighty ©LASER BEAM OF DOOM™
→ full mouse support! now you can get rid of the keyboard to play
→ even more code optimizations, now the game run mostly at 60fps!

0.9.1 update:
→ you can be a real pilot and choose to invert y-axis (option in the pause menu)
→ code size and speed optimizations (i removed almost all COLOR() calls!)

there is some tokens free, i will try to add some feature later if possible.

feel free to report me any bugs!
