Rogue Star Rescue is a fast-paced roguelite bullet hell shooter with tower defense elements. Shoot your way through diverse alien planets while strategically gathering traps and resources for the epic boss fights. Defend your planet and stop the catastrophic Rogue Star from annihilating everything.

The Rogue Star

Our galaxy is about to be destroyed. A massive Rogue Star has formed from the cosmos and is on a direct collision path. It threatens to vaporize everything. Leaders from planets around the galaxy have assembled a top team of fighters to stop the Rogue Star at all costs. We are the Team.

The evil aliens from a neighboring galaxy see the Rogue Star as an opportunity to destroy their long time rivals. They learn of the Team and rush to their galaxy to their plans while the Rogue Star inches ever closer.

The Galaxy

The Galaxy is a collection of diverse planets with strange inhabitants. Choose your own non-linear path through the galaxy and explore each planet carefully. Planets such as the Terra, Beach, Steampunk, Ice, Desert, Fire, Toxic, and Haunted. The map of the galaxy is always expanding, with mysteries and surprises around every cover.


Choose from one of the elite team members, each with a personal drive to save their home planet from annihilation. You will interact with other team members throughout your quest. They may stop by to help you fight on their home planets or contact you with useful tips about your mission.

Weapons and Items

Discover and unlock dozens of unique items. Collect different combinations of guns and passive items to enable powerful synergies. You'll find everything from advanced space weaponry to historical weapons and everything in between. On top of carrying your main gun, you'll also have an arsenal of powerful grenades ready at the tap of a button.

Traps and Defense

While exploring each planet you must gather traps and resources to face an epic boss and his waves of minions. Strategically place traps that slow, block, push, spike, burn, freeze and shoot at enemies. Upgrade your traps to make them stronger, and choose specialized attributes based on your player.

Your Choices, Your Ending

Choose which planets you travel to and make important decisions that decide the fate of your galaxy. Each outcome is different. Will you save the galaxy from total annihilation? Or perhaps be vaporized in the process?
