Here’s a rundown on the game:

Rym 9000 is a vertical shoot’em up in which you fight your way through 5 levels of concentrated action to reach the Moon and find the Rym 9000 treasure; a legendary relic left by an ancient civilization, buried in the Moon for a generation of pilots to find and “turn the world upside down.”

With an emphasis on haywire motion and experimental visuals from Sonoshee, along with a cyber-stellar soundtrack from Roex, Rym 9000 will take you on a chaotic trip of challenging but fair hyperkinetic fun.

Achievements are set in place for the player to unlock World Log entries and know more about the world they’re venturing into, as well as understanding the history behind the treasure that the protagonist and millions of other pilots are setting out to find.
