Solaroids: Prologue

With the same basic controls as the classic Asteroids®, you must learn to navigate and fight with inertia ever present. Solaroids is not a game for the twin-stick junkie. You’ll need to evolve or perish trying. Take complete control of your vessel, amass advanced weaponry, and take back the stars…

Help Solaroids earn the respect it deserves on IndieDB!

Local Cooperative Play

If a couple of your mates walk in, have them join in the fun.  No need to leave the game to add players, as they can join in at any time.  Just connect another controller, optionally customize the color scheme, and pow… your in!  Someone needs to drop out for a while, just don’t continue and the game will be forfeit.  No worries.

Someone take your loot, or fire a little too close for comfort… Pop of a few rounds to let them know who’s boss and that it’s not appreciated.  Nobody’s gonna stop you!
