Top-down, turn-based game that mixes tactical skills and the feeling of 80’s sci-fi movies. Command a troop of soldiers in a singleplayer campaign or fight on one of 24 multiplayer maps. Explore the planet Anthracite, using advanced teleportation technology and gridless movement.
Explore the beauty and the dangers of planet Anthracite by leading your troops through 41 missions of a story-rich singleplayer campaign with about 20 hours of gameplay. Fight various enemy types including menacing local fauna, Bullets bandits, autonomous robots and well equipped ACP soldiers.
The year is 2130. Sedvan’s spheres, advanced teleportation devices, have activated themselves after decades of remaining dormant. Tactical Troops, a unit of interplanetary mercenaries, are called for what seems like a routine mission on planet Anthracite. This excluded world turns out to hold dangers nobody expected.
This is a routine mission – what could go wrong…
Every single movement takes place in a grid-less tactical environment. Plan your strategy and move your troops with freedom: attack on an open field or from a hidden corner. Take cover behind rocks and trees or ambush the enemy from inside buildings and bunkers.
Teleporters add a whole new dimension to tactical combat thinking and they are a permanent challenge to a Commander’s mind. Not only you can teleport your units, but also your bullets and grenades. You can plan ambushes from the other side of the map and even use teleporters as shields!
Make a good use of teleporters that play important role for both the story and the gameplay. They add new tactical options – transporting troops around the battlefield, shifting fired rounds or thrown grenades and can be used as cover.
Hot-seat and online multiplayer
Play against a friend or a challenging AI opponent in online multiplayer or the touchingly nostalgic hot-seat mode. In the Domination mode you need to control 2 out of 3 control points for two turns in a row. In the Devastator mode you need to destroy 5 enemy generators before losing your own. Of course, eliminating all your enemy’s units is always a good choice. Reach the top of the rankings using your skills and strategy.
Diverse AI behaviors
Fight against clever and diverse enemies powered by Grail – an AI engine developed in-house. Different enemy types think in unique ways. Animals behave predictably, always rushing at you with all they have, while humanoid opponents actively avoid your traps and set their own. Stay on your toes and devise your own strategies to defeat each opponent.
Multitude of destruction tools
There are over 30 weapons divided into 7 different classes. Every weapon manufacturer has a unique quirk that allows for interesting ways to enhance your tactical gameplay experience. There are also 7 gadget types at your disposal. Study the briefing, choose your equipment and outsmart your enemies.

Those enemies will try to cut, smash, shoot, explode, crush, wreck, burn or shatter you – so be quick and careful. Collect all keys to unlock blockades and find teleport to next level.
Abstraverse (home to peaceful round beings) has been attacked by Bad Red Shapes. Good Circles have to crush Red Leader – the brain of all Bad Red Shapes to save their world. Yeah, that’s it.
In singleplayer campaign you have to get through all levels. Every scenery has 12 levels and a big boss at the end. The campaign comprises 48 levels.
You can play all campaign levels together with a friend in coop. All levels are unaltered (enemy number in each level) but will it be easier? You both have to survive and get to the level teleporter.
2 players (blue & green) playing on one screen in challenging survival race. Your goal is to survive last or collect 5 stars. After every match the next level is picked up by random.
Pyk is an outcome of couple my game ideas made in past years.
First project with this idea was KnaK. This is one of those banal games made quickly, which, however, entertained me and my friends for the longest time. KnaK was created in 2006, during 2-hour classes at the university and refined on the same day in the evening – additional levels and saving the best result for each level. The game served us during the exercises at the university as a “time filler”. It allowed one to four players to play simultaneously on one computer.
The full title of this game is KnaK (“Kulki na Kwadraty” – “Balls on Squares” in polish). It takes place in an enclosed space where players escape squares from the balls. These balls are constantly appearing, so it gets harder over time. The player who survives the longest wins.
20 regular levels and 5 races are available to players. On the racing maps, in addition to standard squares, balls and walls, there is a bomb. The player who first reaches her and activates her – destroys all opponents.
In 2010 I modified this idea onto onlie challenge project – Avoider. It was an online Flash game available on nonexisting yet Mochimedia platform. It was a dynamic arcade game that required good reflexes. Your goal was to avoid red opponents and collect green circles. You could run training levles, then play CHALLENGE and compete with players from around the world, thanks to the online Mochimedia scoreboard. There were bonuses appearing every third ball (temporary cover, shocking and destructive current, armor regeneration).
There were 5 types of opponents behaving differently – some move in a random direction, others follow a set route, and others try to reach the player. In the final level, bosses appear every ten seconds (3 different kinds).
In 2015 I decided to develop this idea into sinfleplayer experience – Avoid’em. It was an online HTML5 game where players aim is to collect all orbs in the level in order to proceed to the next one.
A game inspired by classics such as Battle City, Robbo, Battlebull and Alien Breed. It is a 2D top-down mix of shooter and puzzle game set in the mining base on a moon.
Player drives a tank equipped with special types of bullets that bounces off the walls to take out enemies from the corners. Tank can additionally push mobile boxes to crush enemies.
Game has singleplayer campaign and multiplayer 1 on 1 mode.
In this game, players control the BTank and their objective is to destroy enemy robot generators on each map. However, there are obstacles like mines, homing cannons, and other robots to hinder their progress. The generator is protected by a force field that requires neutralizing by destroying all power nodes on the map.
Defeated enemies drop spare parts that can be used to upgrade the tank. Upgrades include better armor, a larger cargo hold for more ammunition, increased power for BBullets, and a nanobot system for self-repair during missions.
The BTank has four weapon options: BBullet (bounces off walls), grenade, and a special mine.
The maps feature crates that can be destroyed (some containing spare parts), exploding barrels for deadly chain reactions, buttons opening doors, checkpoints for respawning after destruction, energy transmitters destroying everything in their path, holes, secret passages, and metal boxes to crush enemies.
First version of the game was made in Game Maker back in 2004. It was skirmish 1 on 1 battle game with split screen. I wrote simple AI bot that utilized FSM and quite handy level editor.
In 2010 I’ve recreated the game in Contruct (DirextX, Windows only) and added more effects and explosions. Level editor supported 3 gamemodes.
In 2012 i took core gameplay mechanics (bouncing bullets and bushing blocks) and created singleplayer version of the game in Construct 2 (HTML5).
Later in 2020 I made BTanx Nano. This singleplayer variation was done specially for the GBJAM 8
Game is specially made to imitate Game Boy’s limitations: 160 x 144 px resolution (upscaled to 640 x 576 px) and 4 color palette.
Player is controlling small tank that has to reach control point, protect the generator or destroy all enemy’s units. You can destroy enemies by shooting them (with bullets that bounce from walls) or pushing block on them.
There are 4 enemy types and 26 levels with hidden passages. Every 5 levels you’ll get a password.
Game was made in 2 weekends using Godot, GIMP, Bfxr and Audacity.
Game is available on itch.io: https://rafalkowalski.itch.io/btanx-nano
Now I’m working on Unity version of BTanx. I’m planning to implement features that I liked the most in different versions so far:
Simple platform game for kids aged 5 to 10. Due to its very low difficulty level it can be the first platform game where kids can learn how to play such games. Player controls cute fox that runs, jumps and shoots balloons. In each level he has to find door to the next one.
This game is a result of my first contact with Godot game engine (godotengine.org). Made in one month while learning the engine (movement, collisions, tilemaps, enemy behaviours, GUI, Audio etc.). Game uses graphics from Kenneys graphics library (kenney.nl).
Fast-paced 1 on 1 couch skirmisher game that will keep you on the edge of your seat 🙂
Players go head-to-head, battling it out to shoot down their opponents and claim victory. Players have access to an versatile arsenal of weapons. Whether you prefer the rapid fire of SMGs, the precision of rifles, or the devastating power of shotguns, there’s a weapon to suit every play style.
