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!

Like others who’ve reviewed Nodeshifter, it took me a few days to really get the hang of the controls/gameplay mechanics, but once i did - the game became an absolute joy to play. And it has the closest to perfect challenge that a game like this could have, adding much more to the level of enjoyment I got from it.
I definitely have no regrets about the purchase at its regular price.... so if you’re thinking of getting it and it’s on sale; snag it! If you’re looking for something that you’ll need to put an hour or two into before it REALLY clicks with you, you’ll be glad you did.

To the developer(s?), nice job! You can add another person to the list of people who’ll jump at whatever you release in the future.
Thank you for the hours of entertainment you’ve provided... especially over this last year, with all the down-time and most everything closed, having stuff to fill out multiple hours every single day was badly needed.
So yeah, thank you.

Good game, just a few things

This game is great! It is a lot of fun, and has really unique gameplay! However, there are a few problems. One problem is that enemies that cause a slowing effect can cause your nodes to permanently slow down. Also, if you focus on only upgrading the speed of your nodes, the game becomes incredibly easy. The enemies just die the second they reach your nodes. However, aside from that, this is a really great game, and if it wasn’t for those 2 problems, it would get 5 stars.

Great game, with a few bugs

This game is really fun and addictive. However, maybe it is just my phone but the experience accumulation doesn’t seem to work. I’ve played a number of runs but I still haven’t unlocked a second cassette spot. My stats say I’ve made it to level 14; have accumulated 2010 SAALT; but I’ve had zero runs, zero enemies destroyed and zero Cassettes unlocked even though I’ve unlocked at least 3 of them. I think something is wrong. Still a great game though.
