Sub Dragon is a shooter inspired by Saint Dragon on Atari ST.

Your ship has 2 sides: the white one (left) is invulnerable and can stop enemy bullets. The red one is heavily armed but very fragile!

Move around like a snake, change shape and use both sides wisely to eradicate every opponents!

This game was made in 48h for the Ludum Dare 35. The theme was “Shapeshift”.

A game with an original use of snake mechanics. Hope there will be some day full game (more levels and bioms, enemies...). Love it!

Thanks for making the game. It liked it. The artwork (water splashes) reminded me a little of the old g-darius game. I did find the later levels to be a bit tricky.

But seriously, this is excellent.


Thank you!


My pleasure playing it. But y'know, without the shape freezing function, it would be more difficult and infact, it is doable to finish the game not using the function.

You're right: I added this option as a way to "brake", and it's completely optional.


I enjoyed the game even with this mechanic.
