"Surrounded" is a pixel shooter made in action games style like in 80s of the 20th century. You have received an order to defend your base against hordes of foreign creatures. Your objective is to repel waves of incoming hostiles using your turret. Gain experience for enemies and reach higher levels to become stronger on a battlefield! Beat 40 stages in Story Mode! Fight with the four powerful bosses! Resist enemy forces in Survival Mode as long as you can! Gain achievements for making progress in the game!


The HTML5 version of the game does not support threads which most of specific audio functions rely on. One of them is possibility to loop music from the middle ("seek" function). Don't be surprised if you will hear "gap" in the end of the main menu music. I cannot do anything with this issue as I'm not responsible for the tool porting "Love2D" to "Emscripten". See this link for additional information: The "seek" and "tell" audio methods aren't working in compatibility mode

If you'd like to rate the game, please don't reduce ratings for this issue. It's not my fault!
