“Killing zombies never gets old, but sometimes you just need a break. Get back to some serious old-school gaming with Syder Arcade! 
Syder Arcade is a love letter to Amiga games of the ‘90s, no coins, no upgrade grinding, just your tenacity and a motherload of alien invaders,” reads the game synopsis.

The latest patch issued for Syder Arcade by Studio Evil has brought the coveted Linux support, alongside with a few other changes.

• Linux support has been implemented;
