Play shmup levels that other people have created in the game Space Lord!

Shoot everything and don't die! Use the mouse to move and shoot, or use the arrow keys and space bar.

(or you can use WASD and space bar if you really want)

I made this game with the artists Pat Kemp (~knivel) and Jim Burner and the composer Teo Acosta. Space Hero is the other half of Space Lord, which was originally our entry for the Ludum Dare 25 game jam in December. The theme was YOU ARE THE VILLAIN!

Space Hero is what happens when you take a game about being the villain, and then make it about being the hero again. ;) In other words, people design levels by playing Space Lord, submit them to the Hall of Fame, and then you can test out the levels they've designed by playing Space Hero. I won't pretend this is the best shmup game ever made - it's mostly just a fun little experiment.

Space Lord is the second game jam game I've polished and released, after The Love Letter, which I made the year before with Pat and Teo. You should also try that game if you haven't already! :D

You can play it on my site: [link]

You can play it on Kongregate with scores: [link]

You can play it on Newgrounds without ads: [link]

Hope you like it! :)

Yeah, now that Mochi Media is no more, and their servers are offline, there's no more Hall of Fame to load from. :( You can read more about it on my blog, here:…

I may see if I can find an alternative, somehow, but I don't know...

Thanks for letting us feature this game on our group! We loved the concept of the Space Lord game. It was cool to then reverse the roles, and perceive our own excitement levels. lol ^_^
Feel free to join our group and we'll link this in our "Member Shmups" section.
