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 ;)

Amazing...

Awesome Game! Great use of power ups, and you let us unlock just the right ones at just the right time. When you die though, it comes so sudden that it's like you jump out of a mystical world and back into a normal world. It makes you feel like you want to scream. I like that. Great game!

Fantastic

I wasted half an hour on this game before school and had a blast. It's a calm game, not raising your blood pressure or anything, while still being ever so slightly challenging and inevitably enjoyable as hell. The music also fit the atmosphere uncannily. I must also commend you on the naming: it was what brought me to this page in the first place.

Well done, chap. Bring in some more goodies.
