I've worked on abstracta a couple of weeks now, and I'm proud to present it on NG!

Abstracta is an attempt at translating classic game mechanics that I love into a unique and fluent new game experience. It starts simple: collect crystals, make combos, avoid the deadly mines, fight the four evil bosses - but it gets increasingly complex over time, as more powerups are unlocked.

Controls: Mouse to move. SPACEBAR to toggle menu.

Note: I found abstracta very immersive during development, to the point where I didn't get any work done because every time I tested a new feature I ended up playing 15 minutes, completely forgetting what I should be testing. Well, might be just me, but don't say I didn't warn you, it might be addictive ;)

Great waste of time!

This game is very well made and has a lot going for it. Plenty of power-ups, great motion and imagination. I like how you can easily access the menu and pause with the spacebar. Comes in handy when playing at work!
Only downfall - Kind of loses it's appeal after the fourth boss. I played to about 500k and realized it wasn't going anywhere so I quit.
Good job and keep on making games!

Simple and addictive!

I played this game for 30min but then I died. I loved the controls and the boses! I't alot like the bubble game but with much more in it. The 1942 feature was my favorite personally, but mostly because I love playing that game. Great concept!

That was fun.

Very, Very, fun.
That game had everything; Pacman, 1945, Tetris, matrix, oh wow it had it all.
Truly amazing, and very addictive.
Great Job...
