Shoot em Up Space Arcade Game - BitShift

Rating: 8.5/10 - 122 votes

Play an intense, retro shoot'em up Flash game: BitShift is a challenging, side-scrolling, 1980s space invaders-style, action arcade game that requires very fast reaction speed, good hand-eye coordination, accurate shooting, and super survival skills. Here, you take on wave after wave of dangerous enemy spacecraft, and must dodge and weave around the game screen, avoiding fire, increasing shield power, and eliminating enemies when and where possible.

Good battle strategy is the key to success as you rapidly decide upon the best plan of action to destroy each wave of your pesky opponents. Your survival largely rests on your ability to preserve your energy, and keep your spacecraft from harm. Have you got the cool-headedness, deftness, daring and cunning to become a galactic space pilot legend for centuries to come?

How to Play: When the game initially loads, click Play. This brings you to the instructions screen where the main controls and their explanations are given. When ready, then click on the ‘Got It’ icon in the bottom right corner of the play area. This brings you to the main menu screen. and list of the 18 levels (sectors). With your mouse, select which level to begin from, and click the word "Play" above the list of levels.

For first-time players, we recommend that you start from Level (Sector) 1. Your objective in each level is to eliminate all enemy spaceships (survive until the end of the level). Use the Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard to control your spaceship's movement. Enemy spacecraft approach from the right hand side of the side-scrolling screen, and automatically fire at you as they approach.

Press your A Key to shoot missiles at the enemy. Press the S Key to temporarily activate your shield. Each time an enemy missile is absorbed by your shield, your blue EMP Bar is increased. Once this EMP Bar is full, press your D Key to immediately destroy all enemies on the game screen at the same time. If you get hit without your shield activated, your Health Bar is depleted. Once this is empty, it’s game over, and you can "Try Again" on that level, or Return to the Main Menu. Enjoy the fun arcade action!
