Death Rings of Jupiter is a 2d retro bullet hell shooter, set in the dense asteroid fields that make up the rings of Jupiter.
It features original gameplay that mixes classic gravity games and platformers.

Hidden somewhere in the rings of Jupiter, there is treasure, and it's guarded by an infestation of alien monsters.
You steal a ship, fire up your percolator and set the controls for the epic gas giant.
While you dust off your trusty lasers, fear creeps into the back of your mind.
No one that has gone into the rings of Jupiter has ever returned.

Now available on Itch, a portable version of the game patched to the latest version 1.07.  The game was originally released on Steam in December 2017. This version comes at a reduced price of $1 as it does not have Steam achievements.
