Shoot enemy Retr0ids to clear the level and move on to the next. Some Retr0ids split into smaller ones when shot. There are also robots and other enemies to combat. Can you beat the high score and complete all the waves?

Retr0ids is a 32 level, 2d, retro-styled shoot-em-up. It's sort of a mash-up of Asteroids and Robotron done in a pseudo-8bit style that's a little reminiscent of the BBC Model B but with more colours and better visual effects.
