Vatn Squid is a vertical shooter that features only boss battles, created by Ted Lauterbach during Game Jolt’s Weekend Jam event. Players take control of a ship that can shield itself at the press of a button, and if you collect enemy bullets during this short period of invincibility your super weapon is charged up as well.
There are only ten bosses to beat, which means that arcade veterans should be able to complete the entire mission in one sitting. Others might need a couple more tries, although the game isn’t as difficult as the bullet patterns would suggest at first. Vatn Squid can be downloaded here. (Windows, 7.60MB)
