Orbital Decay Orbital Decay is a combination of side-scrolling space shooter and defensive strategy. The story tells of a future empire of man spread across the Universe, waging war with aliens, impossible to defeat. The Radiant Star capital ship is sent in search of the World Destroyer, a weapon seen as humanity's only chance of winning the war, whilst facing waves of alien ships and an unexpected story twist at the end.

The ship is flown by two AI entities, whose portraits and dialogues help develop the story while playing. The player is in direct control of a huge gun mounted on the ship. With the credits acquired after each kill, the player's ship can be fitted with weapons, the weapons' various parameters can be upgraded. There are also fighter-ship bays and a repair-drone bay on the capital ship, that can be upgraded so that more fighter-ships and repair-drones are produced that fight by the player's side.
