  • Dodge the enemy spaceship attacks and make them shoot each other in the fully customizable world of 1FPS: Invaders.
  • Feed the hungry alien on time with burgers, drinks, and chips in 1FPS: Fastfood.
  • Challenge your perception and be the first one to make the right move in 1FPS: Vacuum.
  • Spray paint on the walls and refill your spray without getting caught as a space artist in 1FPS: Graffiti.

All of those you can do with only two buttons. But can you beat the highest score, or improve your previous one? 1FPS takes everything that is right with the 80s’ retro consoles, combines that with fresh ideas and the untapped potential of today’s mobile platforms.

3 History

1FPS series originally started in Ludum Dare Game Jam in April 2015 with the jam entry named Warigami - later renamed to 1FPS: Invaders. It was intended as a warm-up exercise for the newly formed team. The concept was inspired by the unique gameplay mechanics of the 80s' handheld consoles. The core gameplay idea came from Engin Güneşoğlu. Upon realizing the fresh and mobile friendly gameplay of the jam entry, the team decided to concentrate on the style for a while and turn it into a series. Thus, 1FPS was born. The name is a humorous reference to its nostalgic LCD screen animations.

1FPS also means the debut for 6x13 Games as a truly independent game studio.

7.1 1FPS: Fastfood

You are a service robot who works in an intergalactic fast food store. There is a very hungry alien who keeps ordering 3 different kinds of fast food: Soda, fries, burgers. You should watch the alien's hand, and try not to drop what it orders.

You should deliver (bounce) the order not to lose hit points, and deliver extra food to earn points. It is a simple quick desicion making game which may get complicated as it gets faster.

7.2 1FPS: Invaders

An action arcade game in space with one big difference: You can't shoot! But you can make the enemy ships shoot each other as they try to hit you instead, and that's how you earn points. Game has two phases: Blue Phase where you dodge the attacks, and survive. And short Green Phase where you can replenish your health with the enemy missiles.

1FPS: Invaders comes with 3 different game modes. It also gives you many customization options in which you can set up your own levels, play with the game mechanics as you like.

7.3 1FPS: Vacuum

An educational, intergalactic mathematics contest. You play as one of the two contestants. The aim is to solve basic math quizzes before your opponent does, compare whose result is bigger, and then take action accordingly. Every action you take in Vacuum has a consequence. Mistakes will cost you points, and even hit points.

The main rule is: bigger result wins. But that doesn't mean all is lost if your result is lower, you can "dodge" your opponent's move if you're fast. Likewise, having the bigger result means nothing, if your opponent dodges you before you discard first. As you keep playing, you'll start to be amazed at yourself that how faster you can solve than you think.
