About Centroid

"Planet Centroid - Mankind's last chance in a dying universe. The cosmos themselves are raining down. Defend it with everything you've got."

Defend your planet from incoming space debris. Blast asteroids, avoid collisions, use power-ups - and get a high score! This game plays like a twin-stick-shooter with a twist. All movement is "orbital." Your ship moves in an orbit around your planet, as do the enemies. It's a pretty neat spin on the classic space-shooter genre.


Although Centroid is compatible with a mouse & keyboard, we believe the PS4 Dualshock or Xbox One controllers to be superior input methods for this game.

Left stick to move
Right stick to shoot
□ to execute powerup

Is there any chance for Linux support?


Thanks for reaching out! Please contact us at bravado.howell@gmail.com We would love to chat with you about a Linux build. 


This is a lot of fun!  I've been chewing on arcade game with combat taking place in polar coordinates like this (melee though).  playing this, it was a lot of fun to see some of those concepts imagined in a different way. Excited to see future updates!


Thank you so much for taking the time for these kind words!! Enjoy the game!
