Take on the role of a microscopic space fighter equipped with several powerful weapons, in a dynamic descructable environment teeming with deadly enemy cells (with realistic physics)!

You take on the role of Dr. Smallship, a doctor in the late 21st century that invents a powerful shrinking device. With a new deadly bacterial infection spreading across the world that medical science has no cure for, our doctor gets the idea of shrinking a fully-armed space fighter in order to do things the old-fashioned way! The governments of the world quickly step in to offer their assistance, and five combat ships specially designed for inner-body combat are prepared for the dangerous mission of cleansing the body of the first test subject -- er, patient -- to undergo this dangerous surgery.

This is of course his first attempt at such a mission, so hopefully things all go to plan. If they do, the world may have hope yet!

Unfortunately, on your way into your patient, you were ambushed by several foes who managed to consume all of your weapons except your primitive energy weapon, the Blaster! Hopefully as you work your way through the patient's body, you'll recover them. Especially that experimental Freeze Bomb...

The objective of the game is to pilot your ship, through the body of your first (brave!) patient who is infected with this deadly nameless bacteria, and destroy the sinister bacteria that are eating away at the patient's innards. You will visit the brain, the stomach, and finally the heart of the patient; the three areas that the bacteria attack. There is evidence that suggests a massive 'boss' bacteria that commands all of the others with its enlarged nucleus. Let's hope he didn't manage to consume any of your weapons!

Absolutley Awesome. So when are you going to work for Ubisoft?

Thanks to the map you can shoot the boss from the other side of the map!

Great game, just put some work into the ship design and you'll have a retail grade game (kinda). I wish I could get allegro to compile :(

Congrads on the game. Its quite addictice, i'll never get tired of taking down the boss.

You've inspired me to make my own 2d space sim using the allegro library! Wish me luck.

This was a really fun little game, I enjoyed it a lot. =)

Good job finishing this! The graphics are nice and the game feels polished. The controls were confusing for me at times but I think its just because I'm not used to them. The survivor mode with the new ships and weapons is a nice touch. I like the swirling rockets on the juggernaut.

Hands down, One of the best games on the Showcase I've ever played. I wish it was longer though :(.

Just curious, but what graphics API did you use for it. SDL?

@dcosborn: Thanks!

@bladerunner627: And a big thanks for playing it! I used Allegro for the graphics/sound/input, and FMOD for the music.

Very fun game. Good work. Now, if only this stupid laptop would stop shutting off...

Again, nice job, and I expect more fun games from you.

It's an awesome game, the final boss was really fun to blast away at.

I really didn't expect there to be so many different weapon types, really kept it interesting.
