Conquer three unique bosses in this short boss rush!

Supports  keyboard, XBOX and PS4 controllers (in the web version, button prompts will default to keyboard or XBOX controls, but a PS4 controller will still work).

If you run into any issues in the web version, please try the downloadable version!

CONTROLS (all explained in-game on standard mode)

Additional Info

  • Conqueror mode is meant to be a "New game +" of sorts, so I highly recommend playing on Standard your first time.
  • If you're having trouble beating a boss, keep trying! Bosses only regenerate a portion of their missing health when you fail, so keep at it!
  • If you want to practice a boss, or skip to a specific boss, press the "9" key at the title screen to enter the "Boss select" screen. From there you can use the arrow keys and space to select the boss you want to fight.

Damn, took me a while before I played this. Controls are a bit wacky, but I really enjoyed this! The startupscreen is cool as hell, I love the way they fade in, and the game is polished like crazy, and I love it. And honestly, it felt great playing something again, it was a while since I played anything like this. Thanks!

Thanks! Yeah the controls in retrospect are a little weird, I'm not used to designing combat games for keyboard, sorry they were clunky! Glad you liked the fx, I wanted this game to feel polished. Thanks for playing! I always enjoy your comments!
