A downloadable game for Windows

Turbotron takes the frantic action of a twin-stick arcade shooter and reimagines it as a turn-based roguelike tactics game on hexes.

Made in 7 days for the 2017 7-day roguelike challenge (7DRL)

Version History:

v1.1: Post-7DRL improvements based on player feedback. Includes Mouse support, Balance Changes, New Slugger Weapon


  • Players can aim/shoot w mouse or keyboard now
  • New Victory screen better celebrates a win!
  • Better color scheme for pickups preserves blue for "shooting enemy"
  • Enemies no longer spawn atop pickups, level easier to read at start
  • Heart/Shield/Hit graphic effects for clearer learning of rules
  • Balance changes to improve weakest weapons:
    • Beam passes thru all enemies now
    • Grenade explodes to more spots, but doesn't push
  • New weapon, slugger:
    • Kicks back w/ a 1-cell move
    • Knocks back enemies that survive
    • 2 damage
  • Moved weapons into "treasure chest" because players were overlooking. Now gives 3 weapons instead of 2.
  • Several small bugfixes

v1.01: Original 7DRL challenge entry, except fixed broken sound asset w/ grenade launcher. Gameplay identical.
