ABOUT THE GAME

Zap Blastum is a cover shooter anyone can play!

Tap to move, tap to shoot, tap behind a wall to hide in cover.

In ancient times, heroes fought off invaders and gave the galaxy centuries of peace. The line of heroes died out, and the Jublonians forgot what they once had in them. They led peaceful lives, eating candy and tending to their farms, but Zap felt a calling to be more. Now, robot invaders are landing and it’s your chance for an adventure!

  • Top down perspective makes for a mix of strategy and action
  • Blast through 20 levels of intense firefights that force you to adapt
  • Colorful alien worlds to explore, with a cheerful, minimalist art style
  • Arcade style lives and score system for those who want it, unlimited continues for those who don’t
  • Every robot you blow up gets you closer to unlocking new weapons, grenades, and other features.
  • A timely story about the internal and external roadblocks that hold us back from reaching our potential

Games are mainstream now, with casual games capturing the mass market in a way that hardcore games haven’t. Just like endless runners made the platformer more accessible to casual players, we aim to reduce the barrier to entry of the shooter genre and expand its audience, by cutting the cruft and keeping the fun.
