Hyper-Galactic Spiders from Mars is a 2d arcade shooter with an art style based on the Atari 2600/VCS video game console. I've been working on it on and off for a while, and I've just released it to this morning.

In the game you play the part of an astronaut who has been living in a colony on Mars growing your own food and storing it in huge silos. Everything was going fine until you were suddenly attacked by mutant spiders from the Martian desert. 

You sent a distress signal and you'll be rescued in 10 days. But the spiders are after your food, and there's also mutant wasps and Martian patrols to worry about. So, can you survive long enough for the rescue ship to arrive?

The game is available on for Windows (other versions coming later) from here:

Just a quick update that the game now has a browser playable version available on the game page:

This means that people who don't have Windows compatible machines can now play the game, and you don't have to bother with fiddling around with the download!
