Ad Wars


Ad Wars video game Developed by αGlitch and published by αGlitch

Developed by αGlitch and published by αGlitch

Tired of ads?

Ad Wars is a multi-genre adventure game where you travel all over the Internet to destroy ads, once and for all!

The game is divided into 3 episodes, where each one of them is a completely different adventure with it's own type of gameplay. You'll find yourself jumping and shooting the mischievous yet endearing Gengens in Super Freemium Lands, taking on all sorts of monsters RPG-style in Clickbait Kingdom and playing the role of a roguelike detective in Download Highways. Oh, and did we mention that it all starts with Bullet Hell mania?

Story

Fate dealt humanity a swift and merciless hand one day. In what came to be known as the Ad-Pocalypse, anti-ad forces fought relentlessly against Ad Corporations but were completely decimated. Now, overrun by ads, the world is far from what it used to be, and it's up to no other than Alt, the sole survivor of this cataclysm, to wage a last stand and free the world from the bane of ads once and for all.
