- Over 50 Weapons
Lots of weapons, each one unique. Try out different combinations and come up with your own strategies to decimate the opposition.
- Intense Arcade Action
Fight against waves of enemies using a diverse arsenal of weapons. While the first levels may start out easy, the later parts of the game will pose a formidable challenge for even the most hardened shooter fan.
- Highly Competitive Design
Everything in Hangeki has been designed with competitive players in mind, starting with the scoring system. All levels are scored by time. No arbitrary points. No arbitrary multipliers. Just you, your skill, and a finish line. How you get to the end is completely up to you. Will you play it safe and focus on staying alive? Or go full aggressive and burst down the waves at the risk of getting hit. Or maybe somewhere in between, the choice is yours.

10 main levels, over 15 challenges, Boss Rush, Endless, and extra stages. Everything you'd expect from an indie game like this and more.
- Local CO-OP
Fight with a friend. All main levels support 2 player local co-op.
- Global Leaderboards
Compete on a global scale for the best times on levels. Whether you are a seasoned bullet hell player, or a dedicated speed runner, Hangeki has been built from the ground up to be competitive. All leaderboards show the weapons other players used, facilitating a rich metagame where you can get ideas for new strategies and tactics.
- Full Controller Support
Play with a keyboard. Play with a controller. Players demand the right tools, and Hangeki supports whatever your preference.
We made this indie game with the goal of creating a shooter that even the most experienced shooter fans have never experienced before. Our goals were ambitious, and we were only 2 college students working out of a dorm, but I think we've pulled together something that everyone can enjoy. Everyone from casual arcade game players to hardcore, leaderboard-busting STG pros.
The core design principle my friend and I set out with when creating Hangeki was to create something that has never existed before. This meant challenging convention and re-evaluating all the elements that usually define an indie arcade shooter. Looking at other shooter games, I clearly remember thinking to myself, "why do enemies have cooler attacks than me? I wanna fire the cool attacks." One thing led to another, and Hangeki ended up being focused around making the player the coolest and most weapon-loaded ship in the game. It was surprisingly fun when we unleashed the first Gatling Laser and Triple Seeker.
My friend and I worked on Hangeki while we were both full-time students. That meant working in a dorm room, on random tables between classes, and late at night during those last minute pushes. We also had more than our fair share of other students wanting to help only to quit and leave my friend and I to pick up the pieces. There were a lot of ups and downs with the game, and there are certainly imperfections, but I hope people can still play and enjoy the hard work that went into the it.
