Inspired by classic arcade shooters such as 'Space Invaders' and 'Galaga', Wavecade brings back the original nostalgia feeling to players from arcades, using sleek retro 80's and sci-fi aesthetic.

TIME MANIPULATION:
Bend time at your will by moving up and down the screen. After each wave, the game speeds up a small amount. making the game more challenging on each new wave.

POWERUPS:
You can accumulate multiple powerups at the same time. Collecting the same powerup upgrades it and increases your time with them active.

ABILITIES:
Activate your ability when you are facing near certain destruction to turn the tables of the game. It might be the one thing that saves you from a GAME OVER.

BLOCKS:
- Blocks spawn at the top of the playfield and move down the screen. Line up your shots and shoot them for points. They can come in a variety of types:
- Blocks can have armor
- Blocks can change lanes
- Blocks can change their type
- Blocks can spawn randomly, in rows, in a single stream, or in a pattern spanning the playfield

HAZARDS:
Hazards can appear at any time and can lose you a life if you happen to hit any of them. They can help destroy blocks if you're agile enough, could be a blessing in disguise.

MULTIPLAYER:
Play online co-operatively and destroy waves of blocks. Your scores are saved to the leader boards with your names. How long can you stay #1?

VARIETY OF GAME MODES:
Start a game with standard arcade rules, or customize your own.

CUSTOMIZATION:
Personalize your player ship and choose from a selection of colours as well as your propulsion effect.

FOR SPEEDRUNNERS:
Set a custom game mode and get the fastest time or highest score for that mode.
