Without question Shoot 'em Ups are fun to play. However, the common space theme sometimes just doesn't cut it. Time to be more creative!

Pixel a player "ship" that isn't your generic spaceraft. A plant with guns, an animal that poops rockits, anything goes! You can choose between a top-down and side-scrolling perspective.

Canvas Size - Max. 150 x 150.
Colours - Max. 16.
Transparency - Required.
Animation - Optional.
