In Guardian of the Synthwave you have to protect the center of the incoming waves. Connect the dots in the correct color to keep the center save. Start from the center.


  • On every side of the screen appear up to 3 different random colors.
  • Drag and drop (starting from the middle) the color of the wave to the side of the screen and form a wall of that same color to block that wave reaching the center. 
  • Example: If there is Yellow, Magenta, Cyan on the left, drag and drop those three colors to the left side to form 3 colored walls. 
  • After some time the waves will start to move inwards and destroy wrong colored walls, but stop at correct colored walls.
  • If a wave reaches the center, you lose one out of ten lives.
  • The timer decreases with every wave. Try to survive as long as possible.

This is one of the most awesome concepts I’ve seen in a while. Sadly, the speed is way too fast. Even the first round is hardly playable. Start a bit easier and this will be a lot more fun!


Thanks! This was the product of a 48 hour game jam, there are a lot of things that could be improved.

But thank you for trying it out
