Random ships! Customisable weapon loadouts! Crazy twin-stick shooting! Cryptark gameplay is 2D roguelike action where you break into maze-like alien spaceships (‘arks’), blast your way through bizarre defence systems and destroy the ship’s brain-like core.

There’s a surprising amount of strategy in the Cryptark gameplay. You can just try to rush in and defeat the core, but it’s far better to hunt down and disable the various ship functions first, such as alarm systems, drone generators and core shields. So you’ll need to plan an efficient route through the ship, using your map carefully – and all within a time limit.

You have money to buy bigger and better weapons, but have to live within your means because going bankrupt (not failing a mission) means permadeath game over. New weapons can be found hidden inside the ships, but you can only use them in your next mission, so plan ahead!

Cryptark is available for PC, Mac and SteamOS on Steam Early Access.

Official game description:

Cryptark is a 2D roguelike shooter that challenges players with boarding and neutralizing procedurally generated alien starships to earn income for their Privateering enterprise.

Purchase improved equipment and weapons to tackle more dangerous targets, but be cautious as failure will result in a loss of investment and profit.

The decaying alien arks will defend themselves from intruders with a wide arsenal of cyborg monstrosities, robotics, and security systems, all obstacles that must be surpassed to achieve victory, the destruction of the ship’s central System Core.
