The city skyline at night, under curfew.
A grid of laser beams frames the dark shapes.
Lightning and thunder rock the heavens.
Then it's quiet again... but only for a moment.
Your solitary fight begins anew.

Laser Sky is a side-scrolling shoot'em up with abstract vector art and slow-paced gameplay, suitable for older gamers. It's based on the original prototype of the same name.

Just ran into this game. Great presentation but the slow movement physics take a while to get used to. Appreciation grows the more you play though, because it makes you watch and think ahead. This gameplay quirk and the abstract graphics make it stand out from your average amateur shooter.

Thank you so much!

I love how this game looks!  The sounds can get a little annoying (specifically just the enemy spawning (?) "woo woo" sound) but it's nice to have the options to turn them off.  The only real complaint I have as a player is that the ship moves a bit slowly to dodge enemy bullets.  Also I was forced to use WASD because the arrow keys would scroll my browser around in addition to moving my spaceship.  Maybe that's just a Chrome issue.  

I had fun!


Yes, it is a Chrome issue. Sorry about that. And I wanted a game that requires a little planning, as opposed to reflexes, because mine were never so great, and now I'm over the age of 40. Glad you liked it though!


Great game, here's hoping for a Windows version sometime. :~)

Thanks for the nice words. Try the prequel, it has a Windows version.

Sorry for bad playing.

However, I love the retro atmosphere.

As if I'm playing it any better. This is awesome, thank you so much! Glad you like it!


Great retro fun!
