Online Game Spolous

Spolous is a side-scrolling 2D shooter game (shmup) featuring engaging gameplay where players navigate their fighter to battle enemies and avoid obstacles. The game provides various power-ups and unlockables to enhance the player’s experience.


  1. Power-Up Mechanism: While playing, if a player collects a capsule item, a gauge displayed at the bottom lights up. By hitting the power-up button during this state, the player can power-up their fighter.
  2. Routes and Difficulty: The game consists of 5 different routes. Upon completing a route, a new, more challenging route unlocks. There are three classes of difficulty available, providing a progressive challenge.
  3. Fighter Selection: Initially, players can choose from four different types of fighters. However, as they accumulate and spend credits, more fighters become available for selection.
