About Square Off:

For centuries, humanity has fended off the attacks of a vicious alien species. An Eccentric professor, long since confined to a mental institution, has a diabolical idea! The DNA of a captured alien is embedded into the nucleus of a cell extracted from the professor's own brain! A Squadron of Square Avengers is spawned. Can the professor's hybrid-mutants save the human race from eternal enslavement to a savage master?

Square Off is a 2.5D Survival Shooter and features a seven-level single-player campaign, including a round-based Survival Mode where you fight off ever-increasing waves of enemies. It features a full musical score and a quirky 2D art style complete with stylised 3D environments and guns!
