Photon Baby has thirty levels. Each enemy is in a particular colour, and the player's goal is to shoot the enemy with a particular colour. Photon bullets, when shot, are grey, but turn colour depending on the reflective surfaces they hit.


  • Ghouls - They walk back and forth on the platform they are on, changing direction when they reach the end or hit a wall.
  • Vampires - Female vampires, after moving back and forth on the platform they are on, will pause and blow a kiss with a vampire heart. The male variation of vampires will turn into a bat after some time and chase the player.


  • Werewolf - The werewolf moves towards the direction the scientist moves, and periodically will attack by running. The player's only opportunity to shoot it is after it unsuccessfully attacks the scientist.


  • Spikes - Line certain platforms and kill the scientist on contact.
  • Skulls - These bounce on the ground back and forth on a platform. They kill the scientist on contact.
  • Eyeball creatures - Sticking to platforms, they move back and forth, often obstructing the path of the scientist. They snap at bullets that hit them and cannot be killed.
  • Vampire hearts - Given by vampires, they behave similarly to skulls, only they can bounce everywhere.


Photon Baby was featured in a video trailer when the game was seeking sponsorship.
