Originally developed by Q-Games, PixelJunk™ Shooter puts you in the seat of a spacecraft to navigate through a range of cavernous environments in a bid to save the scientists trapped underground. Making your way through this indie game will rely on your keen sense of observation and the ability to manipulate your surroundings.

Add in a swarm of dangerous enemies, hazardous substances and stranded survivors in need of your help and your mission objectives are pretty clear! 

Destroy environmental barriers to change the play field. Create new tunnels with your weaponry, and channel water into dangerous lava to cool it, making rescue an easier task.

Action, adventure and entertainment await you. Be the hero and rescue the stranded scientists while enjoying a world of fun retro visuals and a dynamic soundtrack that reacts to the level of danger that you find yourself in!

An ancient Civilization x A vast energy supply sleeping in the depths.

Our story of daring rescue unfolds in the caverns of Apoxus Prime, a planet whose mysterious past is buried deep under the surface...

Hunt for mining colony survivors while trekking through pools of incendiary magma, pockets of toxic gas, and hordes of subterranean creatures!

What will be awaiting you in the depths?

PixelJunk Shooter Soundtrack by High Frequency BandwidthWhile

Q-Games has always collaborated with various artists to record PixelJunk soundtracks, PixelJunk Shooter is the first in the series to showcase a "dynamic" soundtrack that changes depending on the state of the game. From layered to stripped-down, from tense to relaxed, the background tracks switch gears to match the moon, which provides for a deeper gameplay experience.
