Description

Classic shoot'em up action is back! Rigid Force Alpha breathes new life into the side-scrolling shooter genre with its lovingly hand-crafted 3D graphics, stunning environments, and detailed visual effects. Players can arm their fighters with numerous upgradeable weapon systems, increase their firepower with adjustable Force Shards and collect Energy Orbs to unleash extremely powerful blasts against an armada of enemies and huge end bosses! The "easy to learn, hard to master" gameplay and numerous cheeky references to hits of the past will delight veterans, while the adjustable level of difficulty and captivating storyline are particularly appealing to newcomers. In addition to the exciting story mode, players can look forward to a challenging Arcade Mode, as well as a classic Boss Rush. An extensive Leaderboards feature and a multitude of challenging achievements provide additional long-term motivation. All this is accompanied by a top-notch, electrifying Synthwave soundtrack. Everything is prepared for countless hours of shooting action!
