A downloadable game for Windows

Hijack Overdrive is an action packed Side-Scroller where you have to steal the enemies vehicles mid-combat to fight back!
It’s a combination of Platformer, Shootemup, and a bit of TowerDefense!

With an ever-changing fleet, made of vehicles you have to acquire yourself, you alone face off against an evil army of invading bad guys and monsters!

The game is currently in development.

This is an early demo that focuses on the core gameplay.
As such, a lot of features and content is absent.

Aside from a lot more levels (and monsters and vehicles), the full game will also have:
- a story
- boss-fights
- various level objectives
- a garage:
   - all hijacked vehicles that survive a level will be added there
   - vehicles in your garage can be used in missions, often optional, but sometimes necessary
   - every vehicle type has it's own unique challenge mission (Try to collect them all!)

Thanks for this game and for Tacx scenes, they helped me to bear this lockdown while cycling at home!

Out of curiosity, what worlds did you ride in the Tacx trainer software?
and how did you find out I made them? :D
