Magnetron NDS remix, a clone of Robotron and Llamatron games for the Nintendo DS. It is a fast paced arcade game.

User guide

Shoot enemies, collect friends R,G,B and get a short power shot. Collect other power ups for more abilities.

Master the ability to move and shoot in various directions at the same time if you are to survive more than a few levels. Move quickly, think fast and calculate the risk on retrieving that power up or free life, a moments distraction means death!

Note: The FAT homebrew uses to store data such as ratings and NitroEFS to start. If Flashcard does not support FAT, the only thing different is not being able to save score.

Controls

D-Pad - Move, Resume game

A - Shoot to the right

B - Shoot downwards

X - Shoot upwards

Y - Shoot to the left

Start - Pause

Note: Hold 2 buttons simultaneously to shoot diagonally.
