Warp into action with Solar Shifter EX. Man your ship and dive into fierce combat situations in space and over beautiful and distant planet surfaces. Solar Shifter EX is a sci-fi shoot 'em up with the unique ability to 'shift'. Your only weapon is your ship: The Phase Shifter has been outfitted with a one-of-a-kind jump drive that lets you warp out of tough situations at will, a technique which will challenge you of to your limits when surviving the masses of enemies coming at you from all sides in this true bullet hell.
In good old shmup fashion you will face uncountable formations of enemies that'll try to stop you. Be clever and use the Phase Shifter's jump drive to your advantage or you will get shot.
Shortly after mankind left the solar system to colonize new worlds, we had to face a powerful alien race. The war has passed, the losses were devastating and the enemy has defeated us.

Their only goal is to collect enough resources to be able to leave the solar system.
