A downloadable Demo for Windows and Linux

This is the FINAL PUBLIC DEMO for my game, Rocket Sword. Unfortunately, I am indefinitely ending plans for release because it is not something I can realistically complete on my own. Stay tuned for future projects!

Rocket Sword is a fast-paced, 2.5D slash-'em-up game inspired by titles like Devil May Cry, Luftrausers, Defender, and Staggy the Boy Scout Slayer, combining the playing field of a wave-based survival shooter with the expressive combat and juicy visual feedback that character-action games are known for. 

Operating the most powerful weapon in the universe, you must mow down hundreds of enemies as stylishly as possible, and earn points towards upgrading your superweapon with new techniques and abilities. 

Levels are large open areas, where waves of footsoldiers, military machines, aliens, and other menacing opponents will try to obtain your ludicrous power. Each level, once you've shed enough blood, is punctuated with a unique and challenging boss fight.

Jesus CHRIST this game is hard!!!

Still really fun!! Very unique!


I stumbled on this randomly browsing steam games about a month or so ago... I really need to start checking Itchy first whenever I see anything interesting, because if 9 out of 10 times there's a demo, it'll always be here, but on steam maybe only 4 out of 10 will put it there. I can only assume they either charge you, or have some kind of nonsensical stipulations to put it up there... God I hate "The Man"!

So crazy and interesting


ok, now where the HECK can I get the music??? I want to review this masterpiece so badly



Hello, I tried contacting you through your email but maybe believe messaging you though here may work better. I wondered if i could ask a few questions on your older game "Leg Frogs"?


This game is absolutely destructive. I went in clueless and came out filled with adrenaline and shaky hands. Everything feels so smooth, fast, and right! I can't wait for more content and I definitely had more than just a little fun

Super cool game, loved the gameplay and cant wait for more levels! Excited for the upgrading system, wanted to level up but my points weren't coming out of the waves after death! Also was able to play Level 2, found some aliens and crashed the game! Hope you don't mind I made a vid off this. Was mega fun.


What a wild ride! 

My only issue is how easy it is for the cursor to be near the edge of the screen and somehow click out of focus on any windows behind it.

Hii, I've made a video about the game and wanted to share some feedback about it, hopefully it is useful to you ^^

-The idea of the game is pretty fun and it's well executed overall.

-The gameplay mechanics are really awesome and have a nice "one man army" touch that  makes the gameplay experience quite brutal :D

-The visuals on the game are quite unique and it's style totally fits the rest of the game.

Hopefully this is useful to you :D, also if you could subscribe that would help me a lot :)
