Grey matter is an anti shooter, or a shooter without bullets.
Essentially your the bullet.

Run into the exposed brains of incoming attackers to destroy them.
Killing 3 of the same type of enemy will cause a "Trinity attack" killing everything inside it.

Avoid enemy dangers (flashing bullets, tails, teeth and lazers)

-You can upgrade at any time in game by pressing P or Esc to pause the game.
-Shields are most important and should be purchased first.
-Holding shift will not only slow you down for better control, but it will also extend, and speed up your options that spin around you.
-Trinity Attacks will increase your chain multiplier which gives you more points for upgrades

All the rest of the info is in game

WOW this is awesome

This game is one of the best ive ever played. I love how its a spin off geometry wars. The soundtrack is completely awesome and the speed is also very cool. I love the graphics and how they stand out over all other games. This is most definetly one of my favorite games on newgrounds.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

love it

good game exept the fact that you have to see the credits over and over again when you die. Also i love the proverbs you can read. Pure awesomeness.
It gets a little boring after a while but still good, i think some awards that you can get would keep people going.

Only one complaint.

When I die, and go back to the title screen, I expect to go back straight to the title screen, and not have to re watch the credits+newgrounds logo again. Over and over. Still, a great game nonetheless. Addicting also.

Really good but....

i don't get the concept, i mean, what is the little fuzzy black thing, what is its purpose and why is it in a brain?
overall its a excellent game and the game play is awesome (even though i still don't know what the upgrade "option" is for...)
