Syder Reloaded is a furious shoot 'em up inspired by side-scrolling European classics from the late 1980s and early 1990s. The game features 8 different playable ships, 6-level campaign mode and 3 different survival and challenge levels. The game features 20 retro graphic filters inspired by C64, ZX Spectrum, Amiga HAM and EGA, and an Amiga-style soundtrack. Designed as an uncompromised old-school experience, Syder Reloaded is a furious and challenging action game that will bring you back in time, when games were all about skill, perseverance and madly swearing at your computer.
Syder Reloaded is the enhanced version of Syder Arcade, Studio Evil's first commercial game. Still loyal to its old-school roots, Syder Reloaded features an improved arsenal of weapons, revamped visuals and re-designed levels and scoring system.
