Steam Store Description:
    Dateline: Earth, 1999. An unprovoked alien invasion is underway. You, a total badass, don't really appreciate it. You won't stand for it. You're downright outraged. You pack up some essentials--guns, cigars, whiskey--and head out into the night. Little do you know that tonight you will make history. This is: Operation Hardcore.

    Operation Hardcore is an action-packed 2D side-scrolling shooter inspired by classic twitchy action games of yesteryear, but with modern touches and conveniences.

    • fight your way past enemies using a range of weapons
    • double-jump your way around obstacles and hazards
    • activate your traditional plasma-based shield to deflect enemy fire
    • drink some whiskey to slow time and increase damage (...at the expense of mental clarity)
    • strap on a jetpack and get airborne for some classic forced-scrolling challenges
    • collect coins to purchase items, weapons and upgrades between levels
    • meet or beat level par times to earn yourself a brag-worthy Badass Rank(™)
    • grab a friend for some friendly and/or competitive 2 player local co-op

    Game Features


    • 12 levels of fiery, bloody, explosive-y alien-blasting mayhem
