Task Attack is a humorous, shoot’em-up arcade game with a twist. Drawing inspiration from the 80’s classics, players first encounter attacking alien invaders, but soon must fend off “real life” interruptions that creep into the game and join the assault. To successfully defend the galaxy, players must defeat trips to the store, car repairs, news alerts, and other annoying distractions. Do you have what it takes to survive a Task Attack?

"I wanted to combine the two things that take up the bulk of my time: video games and to-do lists." - Daniel Colman, Creator of Task Attack

Task Attack combines the joy of 80's video games with the satisfaction of blasting real life annoyances.


Task Attack is Hot Avocado's first published game. Hot Avocado is a one-person shop in Culver City, California started by Daniel Colman, a gamer who was raised by Atari and Nintendo. Two years ago he decided to give making games a shot and has been a dedicated "nights and weekends" indie developer ever since. Hot Avocado's mission is to create fun and engaging games that appeal to gamers and non-gamers alike.
