Oroboros is a classic dodge-n-slash game. No brainiac puzzles to solve... just amazing graphics, sound, and intense action. Rack up insane combo multipliers, slice enemies into pieces, and be nimble with your mouse! The gameplay is at first simple: Some sh!t will hurt you, some will help you, some will do both. Avoid the stuff that hurts, and collect the stuff that helps! Lost yet? To make things more interesting, I added a leveling system that allows you to apply "evo-points" that you earn during each level to various offense/defense stats. The gameplay will be different depending on the upgrade path you choose.

-------------------------
Tips:
*Harvest the Energy Clusters by eating them with your "face" not your "tail". Always protect your tail!
*Power up your agility and cohesion stats first. Without these, your tail will be slow as molasses.
*Blades and Armor only work "after" you get the power ups, and they degrade rapidly, so be sure to power them up with evo points.
*read the in-game info between levels, it will help you!

Oroboros is an avoider game. That being said, you can still kill things if you use the right weapons.

-------------------------
Enemies:
Seekers - weak against blades
Swarmers - weak against energy bombs (space bar)
Warpers - Invincible, but you can use them as a shield against rocket attacks
Rockets - Use level 3 armor to block them (try to lure enemies into their path for some extra fun!)

-------------------------
Controls:
mouse to move
space bar for bombs
left-click retracts your tail
(M) key opens menu
(P) key pauses the game

-------------------------
P.S. This game goes on for infinity (hence the name Oroboros). If you really wanted to, you could play it until hell freezes over, Please don't though... There are lots of other great games to check out, and things to do with your life!

P.S.S be sure to check out the score stats in the game menu (M key to open). It will tell you how well you are doing, and how the points are calculated!

Have fun, and be sure to go see the top 25 players in the Champion's Dimension at the end!
Thanks for Playing!
Peace!

Impressive Game

With slick graphics and easy to use controls, Oroboros feels great the moment you pick it up. What I like most is the "evolution" at the end of the stages. Great game.

Great

Outstanding game. Extremely fun and enjoyable. I did realize that my upgrades weren't appearing to work much or if they were they werent making much of a change.

Amazing game. I like the idea and gameplay on this and it would be great to see some more similar games out soonish!

Great work!

Nice game

I was very addictive. The graphics were pretty good , the sound was ok, it was simple to unterstand how to play, but the upgrades I found a little hard to understand.
Just one thing, in the controls screen when you start the game, you can click the links that are in the screen. So I ended up openning the armor games site. But that was minor compared to the game.
I really enjoyed it. Great work.

Great fun!

I loved the game itself, I always get caught by those seekers but besides that I really like it. Great ascension of difficultly level as the game went on, and the Evo point system adds some needed depth.
