A downloadable game for Windows

The Red Wedge is a simple, experimental, abstract hyrbid of the SHMUP and platformer genres. In it, you must shoot oncoming enemies as in any side-scroller SHMUP. However, you must also avoid falling off the screen by jumping on moving platforms.

The game's graphical style, along its thematic subject, is based loosely on Eliezer Markovich Lissitzky's famous 1919 Soviet propaganda poster, Beat the Whites with the Red Wedge ("Whites" refers to the Czarist White Army during the Bolshevik Revolution).
