A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux


This game contains a flashing image. Just the one, though.


Cecil's Last Stand is a simple, yet frantic arcade action game about defending yourself against innumerable odds. Swing your shield around wildly to block a hail of oncoming projectiles until the bitter end...


Use W, A, S, D or the arrow keys to steer your shield. Press escape to pause, unpause, begin and restart the game.
