About SteroidS

SteroidS is an Asteroids-like arcade shooter where the only thing that matters is the high score. You’re a scientist trying to stop some “crazy thugs” using your steroids gun to defeat them, but there’s a catch: each steroids shot makes them faster (and they need more than one shot to go down), so things can get really hard as enemies become faster!

The goal in SteroidS is simple: get the highest score possible by killing all enemies inside the arena before you are overrun. Steroids make your foes faster, so you have to move fast!
