Featuring a rich story line with animated cutscenes and phenomenal voice acting, Shuttle Maze feels like a rich blend of 80s retro arcade and watching your favorite Saturday morning cartoon.

- Various upgradeable spaceships each with unique stats
- Navigate Glow’s spaceship through mazes using unique mechanics
- Blast your way through enemy bots
- Upgrade your weapons with Dr. Harris' help
