Nodeshifter is a modern, roguelike arcade game that pits you against an invading horde of Kryptorians in the single most deadly offensive launched against the forces of humankind — through the computer! So get your power gloves out because you’ve been approved to pilot a state-of-the-art Nodeshifter digital vessel.

Each Nodeshifter comes fully equipped with a rapidly orbiting Node capable of summoning destruction at a scale the likes of which has been heretofore unseen. Ok so maybe the Nodeshifter isn't exactly that advanced… and yes maybe the weapon systems are a little crude but don’t worry along the way you will pick up a number of upgrades to make smashing aliens easier. Sure, it may be in pixels, but that doesn’t make it any less metal.

To become a Star Defender pilot takes guts, skill, and bravery. But if you are selected to be a part of this elite alien fighting space force then your name will be etched in the stars of valor forever.

Power-Up Your Play Style: Acquire unique and game-changing Enhancements for your Shifter that will dramatically alter your strategy and play style for the run. Try out new combinations for punishing results.

Even Loss is Progress: Pick up Saalt from your fallen foes to purchase Cassettes that will give you a competitive advantage in future runs. These power-ups are permanent upgrades that can be chosen to better fit your uniquely preferred play style and preference.

New Paths of Destruction Every Time: Every level of Nodeshifter is dynamically generated so that your pixel carnage is fresh every time you play. It’s so timeless, it’s practically undead!

A Unique World to Explore: I mean, “explore” is a loaded word here, but there’s a story and everything. And it kinda rules?

Think you have what it takes to beat the hardest game known to mankind? Join the journey of a galactic lifetime and download Nodeshifter today!

Unique, tough, and worth it

Whoa I had a hard time making a lot of progress initially but I’m glad I stuck with it. Once you get the hang of it, warning, it’s highly addictive. So much fun and challenging, definitely one of my favorite all time games. Highly recommended!

Good luck

Finally a unique mode of action! If you get this game, get yourself a good lawyer too! My wife has threatened me twice just tonight to put the game down or she’s headed for the border with half my stuff, half my money(jokes on her - there is none), and all of my dignity.

Perfectly addictive nostalgia

Absolutely incredible! The perfectly simple and addictive game that is so much fun to play. As a child of the 80’s I really appreciate the synthwave/80’s nostalgia to the game design and supporting elements. Fantastic!
