In the far flung future scientists have discovered where viruses truly come from...

Outer space!

Now, to save the human race from being sick ever again, the unit known as Sanitize must shrink down to microscopic levels and blast away the attacking virus swarm!


Project Sanitize is an infinite Galaga style shoot 'em up. You can play Two Player alternating with one or two controllers (remember to set up how many controllers in the options menu!). Shoot as many enemies you can and get a high score!


Move using the Arrow Keys, Joystick, or D-Pad

Keyboard X or Gamepad Fire Button

Keyboard Z or Gamepad Dash Button

1 and 2 keys on your keyboard function as 1 and 2 player start.

This game is in an early version. If you have suggestions for changes, please leave a comment below. More features are planned!

It should be noted that this game is in no way intended to make fun of the pandemic which is currently sweeping across the world. This game is dedicated to the essential workers who are risking their lives every single day, exposing themselves and their families to Covid-19. More over, this game intends to poke fun at the sentiment that you could in fact shoot a virus with guns, that you could inject lysol to cure a virus, or that Covid-19 is in any way a joke. Rather than make light of Covid-19, I hope this game can bring some light to an otherwise dark time, even if for one person. So stay inside, stay safe, wear a face mask, and entertain yourself with this game.

You could provide a gameplay trailer or video to see how the gameplay is in action. It could be just a few seconds.
Thank you.

Thank you for your feedback! The page has now been updated to coincide with the Octo update to include a gameplay trailer!


Feels great to play and challenging. I think I’ll be coming back to it quite a few times.

Whenever a dash move has cooldown I always have trouble knowing when it’s available or not. I like how Graceful Explosion Machine gives you 2 dashes before you have to wait and also a meter above the ship.

Thank you for the feedback! I'm considering some major changes right now, and the dash is one of them. Stay tuned!
