"No Ammo"

Reviewed by / Apr 10, 2014

Shoot and survive for as long as possible

Retaliate is a space game where you need to achieve a highscore and kill all the enemies while absorbing their ammo.

Remember that your start off with no ammo, so you need to get some while avoiding the attacks. How to move? Tilt left and right to move, press the right side of the screen to fire and the left one to use the energy shield.

Don't forget to adjust your preferred difficulty level and begin the battle, trying to survive for as long as you can.

The game consists of a unique endless level, where you need to obtain the highest possible score. Compete with your friends and climb up the leaderboards.

Romans I XVI is the developer of Retaliate, a simple yet challenging shooter arcade with a retro feel.

Developer's original description available here
You are valiant space hero who is not as fortunate as those in the golden age of scrolling shooters (Space Invaders, Galaxian, Galaga) as to have infinite ammo. You must absorb your enemies' ammo and Retaliate!

"There's an amusing video at the beginning, and very simple controls." -

"Retaliate is refreshingly challenging. " -

"I now have a new tablet gaming addiction Retaliate." -

"The continuous dodging, blocking and firing sure makes for an intense and challenging ride." -


This may look like a simple game, and in some ways it is. A endless level, score as many points as you can, scrolling shooter. But the unique twist is, you start with no ammo. The uniquely challenging gameplay requires you to move into enemies' attacks one instance, while avoiding them the next. The dodging, blocking, and firing all combined can at times feel like trying to pat your head and rub your belly at the same time.


Tilt left and right to move.
Press the left side of the screen to use your energy shield.
Press the right side of the screen to fire.


Your goal is to score as many points as possible. Destroying a enemy with your energy shield gives you 5 points. Shooting an enemy gives you 10 points. Be sure to grant the game access to Google Game Services so your scores will be posted.
