Play OverviewPlay Overview

One Btn Bosses is an action game where you shoot enemies as a tiny spaceship. Unusually, instead of controlling the moving and shooting, you have a single button to change direction. It stands out for having to choose between changing direction to avoid attacks or resisting pressing to gain attack power and speed.

Play involves defeating the different boss enemies by shooting them as a small spaceship. You continually shoot and move along a defined path around the enemy. You have a single button, which changes your direction. This enables you to avoid incoming attacks but also slows you down and reduces your attack power, making every moment a careful balance between safety and dealing damage.

As you play, you gradually unlock new weapons, such as a laser, and new actions that replace changing direction, such as a dash or a teleportation ability. Each comes with its own enhancements, and experimenting with different abilities to find what works best for you is part of the fun. In addition to the standard levels, there is an additional game mode where you see how many enemies you can defeat without dying more than three times, without changing your movement and weapon choices.

The result is a game that, though only requiring a single action from you, offers surprising depth and challenge as you balance avoiding damage with dealing it. Combined with the different choices for movement and attacks, it makes for an engaging game that strongly rewards skill and ambition.
