ｖａｐｏｒｍａｚｅ is a roguelike first-person shooter in a vaporwave maze. To escape, you have to carefully manage your ammo, health, items and upgrades. All while shooting and blowing up bad robots. Death is permanent. Can you escape?
The game takes you through mazes filled with robots to kill and things to buy. Meanwhile, in each maze level, Helios will share his knowledge and ideas. Maybe you can reflect about them and find a meaning while wandering the corridors. Maybe not.
Average session is between 20 minutes and 1 hour.
If you are having trouble playing, check the tips on the discussion forum.
Most objects are physically simulated. Your bullets have weight and ricochet around. Getting punched by a heavy enemy will throw you away, jumping into a wall will bounce you back. Enemies can also be punched out of your way.
There is a limited amount of resources. If you misjudge which items will be useful for your play-through, things are gonna get complicated.
