A downloadable game for Windows

The once peaceful surface of Mars has decayed into a violent battleground between arms corporations and Earthly governments.
To join the fight would be crazy. To survive would be downright psychotic.


Landsword is a top-down mecha shooter with a heavy emphasis on destruction and gameplay that combines elements from classic shoot em' ups and contemporary action-stealth games.

Featuring fully destructible environments, players must use their wits and surroundings to outsmart and defeat enemies in combat, while still retaining an arcade feeling to its gameplay.

This demo currently includes three different missions with three different weapons to choose from.

See you on the battlefield!

Thanks for playing!


Great sound effects and UI! Took me straight back to 80s anime.

Glad you like it and noticed the 80s anime inspiration! The ricochet sounds are straight from Patlabor and Gundam.


This game got so much potential !


Oh, it runs on mine 32 bits potato, nice.Mine only complaint is that everything being beige makes it hard to see thing on the small window

Glad to hear people with older hardware can run this. I'm working hard on trying to get resolution resizing working, something is messing it up. I apologize you and other people had to play it in such a small resolution.
