A downloadable game for Windows

Protocol Matryoshka is a game based around the main character JX-04. You play as JX-04 and find yourself awoken in a strange and unknown place. You have no memory or knowledge of who, or what you are….

As you scan the area you begin to realize this strange place is some kind of laboratory. Some kind of research centre. You see blueprints and diagrams on the walls that describe a hybrid artificial intelligence technology.

Then. You here a sound, a scrambling of footsteps and shuffling. Then through the door comes these creatures, half organism, half machine. You know you are in danger and must run, must defend yourself.

Your mission…. SURVIVE!!!!


  • Survive as long as you can from the onslaught of enemies.
  • Collect power orbs to fill the green bar at the bottom of the screen. Once filled you will level up to the next stage.
  • Each level gives increased health. This is displayed at the top left.
  • W,A,S,D to move. Mouse to aim. Left Click to shoot.
  • Enjoy!!!

Great game! I enjoyed getting rid of these guys and it was difficult to stop.
It could have more visual feedback on getting attacked by enemies, but other than that I've got nothing to complain about :)
The controls are pretty good. Adding some support for game pad would be awesome!
