A downloadable game for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux

This is my first game. What started out as a recreation of Space Invaders to test my coding proficiency over the summer soon evolved into something far greater. The entire game has been programmed with Java using the LibGDX framework. I proudly present: Benevolence!


The choice is yours.


  • A easy-to-learn, hard-to-master game that will put your skills to the test
  • A simplistic art style inspired by pixel art
  • Actions with consequences. Your choices affect the rest of the game
  • An original soundtrack created by yours truly
  • Three different endings. Can you find them all?


I hope you enjoy Benevolence as much as I enjoyed making it! Please leave some feedback for me when you finish playing; I hope to make more games in the future, and any kind of feedback helps! :)


1.1 Patch Notes:

  • Increased player fire cooldown. Now it takes longer to fire consecutive bullets
  • Player fire mechanic change. The fire key must be released and pressed again to fire another bullet
  • Level delay added. After finishing a level, there's now a delay before the next level starts
  • Playtester list updated
