Created for the AI and games game jam for theme "Breaking the rules". 

The referee has gave up the day job and all rules have been aborted. Except one: Shoot to win.

Shoot the ball, shoot the ball at the goal, shoot the enemy team, shoot your team mates. It's shmup ball. Anything goes.

You can also play local Multiplayer with up to 4 people.

Html 5 version now added so you can play in your browser! Let me know if any problems.

Known bugs:

When going to "Controls" via the menu you will be put straight into the game. This is to avoid a game crashing bug (for now until fixed). Control scheme is shown on the games page as well.

Controls menu is still useable in the downloadable pc version.

Executeable / Zip file now available! May be getting html 5 build done soon.

Shmup ball has now been changed to an .exe file installer. Sorry for any inconvenience caused and thanks to everyone who told me.

I think that you shared the project and not an actual build :/

Just updated it now. Thanks everyone. I must have been tired.


Hello, your game looks fun! But I couldn't find an executable to run when downloaded.

Apparently I accidentally uploaded the source code. I have fixed this now. Sorry 

😂 .

Thank you for using my music in your game.

I wish you the best of luck.

The game looks amazing. You have mixed two of my favorite genres.

They're amazing tracks. I will be sure to post a review tomorrow once the jam goes live! 

I have the main tracks and credits tracks in my head all day. Great work. Thank you!
