A downloadable game for Windows

Side-Tracked is a two-player local multiplayer game developed as a student project at NHTV, running on a custom engine. Two players must defend a train which is navigating a looping track around a level while being attacked by monsters shooting at it and running alongside it. The enemies will randomly drop one of 3 pickups which upgrade the players weapon and make it more effective at eliminating the enemies. Try to defeat all the monsters and keep the train alive until the end of the level to win!
