Added source code and assets

I'd been considering putting up the source code for a while. The only real downside is the embarrassment of my amateur code which is a silly reason for having not done so. Maybe someone will find some of it handy.


Cyber SHMUP is a cyber-space themed shoot'em up game guaranteed to XOR your bools.

Fly through manually assembled missions of QWORDS and face off against hordes of maligned bits.

Equip a primary and secondary weapon to defend yourself, acquire memory to load up on damage, fire rate, or improvements unique to your primary weapon.

Use special abilities to increase your chance of survival as you seek out the sources of corruption within your system.

Delete the massive bugs within your system at the end of each level to free upgrades for your special abilities.

You will find that your enemies will become more resilient and more diverse the deeper you dive into your system. Eventually, your journey will require navigating ever-more treacherous spans of memory, shaped by the powers of corruption.

You have only one chance, admin. Do your best!

Uhh why does my copy say, "Not available on Windows"? Is that a problem with Itch.io, or is it intentional?


Looks like that was me forgetting to hit a checkbox in itch.io. Thanks for letting me know!

You are welcome.

I'm loving this game but only made it to Level 3 (that square boss is quite difficult). How many levels away am I from finishing it?

edit: I've now made it to Level 6 and died at the boss.

There are 8 levels.

Thanks for the info. Gonna have to keep practicing and get those last two levels done.

It's literally one of my favorite games now, thanks for making it!
