Through careful decision making and quick thinking, clear waves of foes with a weapon you create through a selection of upgrades. Be careful though - for every upgrade you choose for your weapon, you must also choose one for your enemies. If you choose wisely, you might find that you can create the perfect weapon to counter your enemies.


Upgrades are the core of Manic Mania. After each round, a selection of 3 upgrades will be offered for both your weapon and for the enemies. One from each must be chosen before progressing to the next round. Careful selection allows for very interesting combinations to be created, and every upgrade's effect stacks, but making a bad call is one of the fastest ways to fail. What kinds of combinations can you come up with?


  • An arsenal of 35 unique, stackable upgrades that drastically change the way you play.
  • Fast-paced first-person shooter combat that sees you weaving through groups of enemies with an agile dash.
  • Round-based progression with an optional ending, or skip it to play endlessly. How far can you go?
  • An entirely original soundtrack along with original sounds.
  • Original, hand-drawn, fully animated artwork.
