A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

Falconet is a Sega Genesis/Mega Drive style twin-stick-shooter with smooth weapon switching and quick reaction puzzlelike gameplay. As a highly advanced weapons entity, your mission as the Falconet is to take on an army of rogue machines and rescue humans trapped behind enemy lines. To accomplish your mission, you will need to rapidly switch between your diverse arsenal of weapons to quickly eliminate your enemies… before they eliminate you.
