This one was very fun, the movement had weird wind up but when you’re going it feels good Speaking of feeling good, every gun has real power which I like

Ridiculous, so immediate, entertaining and with so much it could teach AA games, the open design of the levels is a hoot.
emoji robots rises again
Magnificent little FPS.
I liked this, but it made my toaster cough a little, couldn't get it to run smoothly enough.
The atmosphere and the responsiveness of the weapons felt great.
Perhaps a little too blue though... ?
amazing game, colours, gameplay ... loved it !
This was really fun. I absolutely dig the visuals, and flying in and out on the copterbike was super cool. Very short but incredibly polished.
this is awesome. Are there any plans to follow it up?
A nice little 30 minutes of sci-fi fps. I only wish I got more time to use the rocket launcher. Fun game though :D
Super fun little blast of fps action with nice style. I enjoyed this a lot.
Cool game! I dug the pacing and style. I wish there were a few more mouse sensitivity options. I think the shotgun is maybe too good? But it seems like the way ammo is given out that was the intent. Might be better to spread minimal shotgun ammo through the whole run, rather than have it all at the start then dry up. The lasergun might be a better first weapon tho i guess the way the encounters are designed early game they seem to expect you to have a shotgun. Anyway yeah really fun :D
i usually dont like shooters but this game was just plain fun. it felt amazing to move around and all of the guns felt super satisfying. great game!!
Is this named after the Neil Young song?
I'd say that I crushed the gamer after getting the mashine gun, but that's be a lie. I actually died a few times still. But that's just cuz I suck. Thanks for making this fun game!
i would more call the game sistercrusher
We loved playing and talking about SYSCRUSCHER last night on our live show #IndieGameClub!
You can watch it here!
this was a fantastic game and would love to see it expanded upon.
is there any chance of the coundtrack making it to spotify?
Thanks! :) No Spotify but Bandcamp: https://dirigogames.bandcamp.com/album/syscrusher-soundtrack
really enjoyed this one, good job
Loved it, wished it was longer though.
i have played this game a lot, i found a bug, if you complete the game and you restart it you'll have the 4 weapons and collectibles that give you 1 more heart won't spawn again
Yeah, added that in the 1.0.8 update so you could play the game again with all the weapons. Not perfect, will probably change it soon :)
Wow. This is a really good game. The aesthetic is super cool. I'm excited to see what else you add to the game.
nice game, are you going to update the game?
also lol i just realized i did this on 1.0.6 and 1.0.7 lets you skip the intro
Really fun game! The music and general aesthetic is super cool, and the shooting was very fun for the whole game.
Awesome game! Gunplay was on point, love the slow motion feature and the headshot sound.
Just one thing: when i finish walking, the character seems to slide a bit...it feels of considering this type of game, idk.But, this is the only "problem" i found, much better than i think it would be!
hey so while playing I ran into a glitch when I died and grabbed a health kit at the same time. I have recorded it so you can see it.
Do you think in another update you could make it so people could change the resolution or graphics? I went to play the updated version of the game, but I can't because I can not change the resolution or graphics so my pc can run the game at a smooth frame rate.
Man this was insane fun. Loved the retro vibes, the aesthetics,the music. I think it has a little Blade Runner influence (that is positive). The game is better than you think it is. Keep up the great work! Waiting for new levels or a sequel.
HOW DO YOU OPEN THIS? I just have the .rar file. Now what? I tried opening it with java but failed
- Download the files
- Unrar (use winrar or similar app)
- Launch the exe file
- Have fun
Awesome fun - moment to moment gun play is fast and furious and the art direction is wonderfully 80's robots and lasers!
This game rules! Also got here via RPS. Well done! Absolutely loved this.
Another RPS ref. Damn this game is so good! It seems like not only a badass game about killing robots, but an incredible bite-sized depiction of corporate control and the value of chaos. I don't mean to read too deep into this, but there was something liberating about just melting through this game. Thanks so much!
If anyone from the FBI reads this, just a game about shooting robots, he's wrong. Thanks! :)
Another RPS referral here- WHAT is that song playing at the end? It sounds like a classical tune but I'm terrible with names. The bosses were pretty fun: A+ chopper battle. I enjoyed the lead-up to it with repeated futile encounters ratcheting up tension before the showdown.

Saw this on rockpapershotgun, downloaded 1.0.6 and it instantly crashes on my Windows 10 box. It says to send the dump files to the developer, is there an email address?
This build is from 2018, currently finishing up an update (1.0.7) that will update the engine as well. Never had this issue, but hopefully that one will work better for you. Few days :)
Friend recommended this to me, haven't played it yet but it looks great! Felt like I had to drop by and leave a comment since I saw you also did STOWAWAY, which I really enjoyed.
Surprised I missed this once since I've been following your page since the release of that game.
Pretty good! The bosses were weirdly too easy, but I had fun!
This was FANTASTIC - I'd totally buy a full game based on this demo :D
Amazing game, a lot of fun. the visuals are what pulled me in and when I beat the game all I felt after was a hunger for games with visuals as such. Maybe one day we'll see another SYSCRUSHER... a solid 8/10 in my books!
I just played through this game, it's amazing!
The visuals look great and have a very nice consistent artstyle.
I'd definitly love to see a longer game like this.
Okay, so this was way better than I thought it would be. The music is what really did it for me. The music, especially later on in the game, had me pumped to take down a rogue AI. I like the artstyle a lot too, it isn't over complicated and uses colors in a good attempt at establishing specific vibes. I think it was the one liners (of which I only noticed at the end of the game) that wrapped up the whole package though. I'd love to get my hands on a more polished and extended version of this. 7/10
What a great review. Thanks! :)
Just being honest :D I'll be back to throw a few dollars your way soon
It's just a demo, save your money :) But thank you
I'll save my money for the full game! :D I love how you're still updating this demo even though you're working on a full one too.
Also, you could make the landing animation at the start feel a little more natural. As of right now it feels too perfect for a human to make those maneuvers, even simply having one of the hands press a button to indicate some kind of landing assistance would do wonders for it.
I can see that, sure! Great point. In the first draft, you zoomed in with proper aerodynamics. At some point, felt it was more important to slow down and see the map from above. Since the Mustang (electric horse) is autonomous and propeller driven (like a giant drone) it can fly in at any angle/speed
