***As someone in the reviews suggested (thanks!), I added pause support. I was afraid it'd put me over the 30Kb mark, but lo and behold, just barely made it.***

***I guess some people are missin' the point... of course this isn't an original concept for a game, I've got a game just like it on my 2600. What is original is it's filesize (

Well, I was gonna stay up all night long and work on Spindle 2, but gotta totally sidetracked with making this... a fast-paced space shooter that you can tuck into a preload sequence, complete with some cheesey sounds. As 99K proved, good flash don't gotta be big. And even that one was a mammoth in comparison.

Soon I plan to have a website full of Flash game tutorials, where I'll pour over every inch of this script in detail, as well as keep a log of programming Spindle and whatever else I'm doing.

Until then, dig it small!!

**I almost forgot! Late last night, unclemike put the idea of a tiny preloader space shooter in my head. Today, it is finished. Thanks for presenting the challenge to begin with!**

Not bad but...

A decent sort of game, the music is catchy and goes well with the space them and the SFX is good too with some bleeps and bloops. Unfortunately the game itself is a little hard too early, I found myself dying from near invisible enemy fire while going for power-ups and even then they rarely did a thing. Nice game is persecution but a little too challenging to really enjoy. The enemy fire needs to be changed to a red and their movement slowed down.

I have to agree with kain, it's really easy. I got to about 2 million, but stopped because my wrist was hurting. All around, a good a game not even considering file size.

This game's FAR too easy, I got a score of 274900 without even hitting a score multiplier, nonetheless, great for a 30k fighter, Vote 5!
