How to play this game -

You are orbiting a worm hole and an enemy is coming through. It is

but sometimes they release a bullet bomb. If you do not shoot the
incoming bullets they will take your health down.

When you see the blue star shoot it. You will receive a random powerup
which can be health, missiles, or shields.

Destroying the environment and accuracy give you bonus points. As well
as not getting hit.

non-click games might get deleted

-haywire- actually no. If games not made in MMF weren't accepted here, this wouldn't have shown up in the downloads list.

WHY do people insist on saying this is a click only site, even indirectly. Gah, this has been gone over so many times in so many different shapes in forms. Maybe we should put in in bold print on the top of the sight.
"Non-Click games are ALLOWED, but not eligible for GOTW."

Are non-Klik games not allowed to enter GOTW? I'm sure they are, aren't they??

Oh wait, i'll rate this game now.....

Very good example of a standard shoot-em-up. Excellently executed, this game is commercial quality in everything but the actual gameplay premise. Very good!

Also, see my review.

Heh. I'm surprised you submitted Prompt Critical here. Not sure how some people here will react on 3D. I think you should submit your The Griffon Legend too. Much more "click-style" game and something I personally prefer over Prompt Critical.

Anyway, this was and will stay a 70-80% game to me. Despite offering small amount of content, the execution is brilliant and the gameplay continuously tense and addictive. Otherwise it would be a 3 stars game to me.

Ultra-stylish shooter...! The Tempest comparisons are well-founded (that's my all-time favourite shmup). However, I felt it was a bit too disorienting and non-linear; though I made it to wave 10, I had no sense of any progress at all other than the frequency of enemies and missiles (or perhaps that was the point). After a while, it was too confusing to even attempt to know what I was doing.

I wish I had a subwoofer; I'm sure that background music is even more awesome with one of those.

Personally, I don't care whether or not it's a Clik game. Excellent work!

Agreed with you, s-m-r. Who cares if it's Klik or not?

Fast paced arcade action. That's all that matters.

^ Agreed.

It took me a few tries but I finally got a high enough score to submit.
